To my little Riley Roo Roo
Today you are nearly 2 weeks old, our life has been turned on it’s head since you arrived and I wouldn’t change a minute of it. You are to me the most beautiful and perfect child, I’m sure every mum thinks it, but you truly are. You have helped fill a very large hole that was left in my heart 3 years ago when your sister left this world. I won’t pretend life with a newborn baby is easy but my god you make it worth it, when you look up at me with those big beautiful blue eyes, my heart just melts.
This morning at 4am we lay in bed the two of us, and I just loved holding you close. I know I will blink and soon you will be grown up and it won’t be cool to give your mum cuddles any more, but until that day I will cherish every cuddle, kiss and snuggle I can take.
I spent so much time when I was pregnant with you terrified I wouldn’t know how to be your mummy, scared I would do something wrong and my biggest fear is I will ever let you down. I can’t promise I will get everything in your life right, but I can promise that I will try to do the best and the right thing for you, every second of your life. I won’t promise to always be your friend and I’m sure we won’t always see eye to eye, but I promise to always try to keep you safe and I promise to make sure you know just how loved you are.
You see when we said goodbye to your sister I knew I would cherish her siblings that but more, because I know I will take night times of you crying and lack of sleep over saying goodbye to another child again. I right now am the luckiest mummy in the world because I get to be your mummy, and to me that is the best gift I can ever be given. So know everyday my little roo roo that I am here, I will be the one to push you that bit further, to hold you that bit tighter and remind you just what a special and amazing little person you are. So now I am off to give you an extra little cuddle and kiss, how lucky am I?
All my love
Your mummy xxx
