HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELIJAH!i
Dear Eli and Guillianna !
Today is the big day ! You turn 7 years old ! HAPPY ? BIRTHDAY ! While I cannot say in this love letter things about how amazing and proud we are of you at your school, the hard work at reading you do, or your baseball or other activities, since we have not been told anything about you in months … We have not been sent a single photograph of either of you, so we dont even know how big you are, how you have changed. That is pretty ironic since this entire journal is a small sample of the thousands of photos we have always sent your mom and dad. Bridging the distance gap and making sure nothing got in the way of its imporatnce. What WE CAN TELL YOU is this – based upon what we know of you – what we saw – and how awesome you are … THE LITTLE MAN WHO LEFT HERE 9 MONTHS AGO IS WITHOUT A DOUBT…. SO SMART. SO HAPPY. SO SILLY. SO FUN. WE KNOW HOW YOU LOVE HUGS TICKLES SNUGGLES AND RUNNING FAST. WE KNOW HOW YOU LOVED BAKING WITH NANA. HOW YOU LOVED BUILDING TRACKS FOR YOUR CARS AND YOUR POPPY ELI TIME AS WELL AS NANA ELI TIME! WE KNOW YOU LOVED TO BE POPPY’S BASEBALL BUDDY!
We know that you are probably the most amazing first grader and we ARE PROUD of you!
Mommy always wanted for you each to celebrate on birthdays by giving the sibling of the birthday child a ” little brother” or “big sister” gift. This is how she has celebrated on each of your birthdays. That is sure easy since both of you love each other and work so hard at being good to each other every day ! Guillianna you are the best big sister – and I hope you take time today to know how proud we are of your love of family. You sure did learn early on the importance and value of having a loving family. You always have had a huge amount of respect and caring for all of those around you !
I have sent you a package with birthday gifts for Eli and big sister gift for Guillianna and I did get confirmation of the delivery. I also sent you some baseball cookies that arrived today ! I am so sorry that Nana and Poppy do not know what toys you like to play with, or what you need or want. We sent some things you will hopefully enjoy ! Enjoy your special day. From the moment you were born into this world (and this applies to both of you being born early, you have been so strong from the beginning, so never ever give up on hope, on dreams, and on the people you may not see, we are here, we love you, and we are so proud of how brave you are. Click below and see your first day!
I know I have posted some of these before, its just these are a few of Poppy’s favorite photos and like I said, without mom and dad sending us any photos at all, you are bound to find some that are the same.
That way you wont have to go so far back in the love letters to see them. I will keep adding more, and floating around some of the old photos so it isnt so hard to find pictures I may have posted years ago…. and when I do, I will write you a new love letter each time. Just like LUNCH LOVE! ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS!
We love you to the moon and back – today- tomorrow and always ….
THIS IS TWO YEARS AGO ON ELIJAHS BIRTHDAY!
SO MUCH FUN!
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️?
