Dear Loralai

Dear Loralai,

Thanks for pooping on me and daddy's bed. Thanks for waiting till I'm ready to eat to decide you're upset about something. Thanks for spitting up all over your clean outfit as soon as I've gotten you dressed.  

Thank you for being quick to smile and your beautiful, observant blue eyes. Thank you for becoming the thing I love most in this world, and changing my perspective in such a profound way. Thank you for being the reason I get a lump in my throat when I think about going back to work tomorrow.

I'm sorry I won't be able to be with you as much. If I had my way, I would spend every second of every day with you. I wasn't sure I'd ever be the mom that said that, but it's a testament to how much you've changed things for me, I guess.  Know that I will be thinking of you all the time while I'm at work, wishing I was with you.  Just because I will be away doesn't mean I love you any less.

I hope you enjoy your month with daddy. It will be a very special time for both of you- a time not many babies are lucky enough to have.  Just don't forget to give him a hard time once in a while, just to keep him on his toes and make me feel better about being away...

Love you lots,
