La vie en rose

Hold me close and hold me fast
This magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And when I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
 When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

This is your lullaby
Happy 2 months little rose!
All my love,

You were born at twenty-nine minutes past the hour on the twenty-ninth day of the month.
Now all too soon the twenty-ninth day has come again and you are one month old! 
Looking back at your precious yellow-tinted newborn skin, 
all six and one half pounds of you, 
how you nestled into our arms and home and lives so perfectly.
Your sweet, sleepy self settled right into any warm soft place I placed you 
and we marveled, though sleepy ourselves, but so in love we never cared.
  And then suddenly two weeks had flown by and you became curious of your new world, 
making noises and coming out of your womb-like shell of a personality.
 We marveled again.

We wanted you to know we were watching, listening, 
always attentive to your needs, always loving you.

 You grew and grew! 
Surpassing your birthweight you are now over 9 pounds

Each day it seems we could never love you more
and yet each day that passes the more in love we fall.

 You've captured our hearts little one!
And now the twenty-ninth day is special in so many ways.

Each month you will grow and change.
And we will try our very best not to blink.
Do try your best to never grow up my dear.
All our love,
Mommy + Daddy

Dear Nollie

Today we are the happiest we've ever been in life
You are born!
Our hearts never knew this kind of love
All teary-eyed, wonder-filled, awe-struck love
Our eyes never saw such beauty
All glowing in newness, soft and smooth and perfectly pink
Perfectly petite and oh so unique in every way
Our arms will never tire of holding you
Our lips will never cease their tender kisses
And our mothers will always be your greatest fans
Loving you fiercely as they have loved us
Our friends will know you and lovingly watch you grow
You are the first of many and that makes you quite special
Happiest of birthdays to you my dear
A life of love and wonder awaits you!
