Dear 20 month old Lilah;

How has 20 months passed??
I remember your birth as if it happened 10 minutes ago.
My memory is ingrained with my water breaking as i'm limping into the hospital and 10 minutes later you; my perfect 7 pound 12 ounce baby was born.



You came out fast and furious!. 

One of my favorite moments was when your big sister, Eve met you for the first time.  I will never forget the look of admiration on her face.  The baby sister that has been in mommy's belly for SOOO long had finally arrived.




Nursing you came easy.  You latched very well and we had 10 amazing months of nursing.  Nursing you in the middle of the night was my favorite time.  It was quiet, and we would often fall asleep together while cuddling.  I'll always cherish those days of breastfeeding you. 

This is one of my favorite pictures of you and I

If I could post all the pictures of you on here I would, but theres hundreds upon hundreds of photos!

One of my greats pleasures in life has been watching the relationship between you and your sister Eve flourish.  I have 2 sisters and know how amazing it is to have sisters. 





You guys have quickly become the best of friends. 




Then you turned 1.  Such a bittersweet day for me.  I couldn't believe that 1 year had passed.  You grew up so quickly!




You started to walk right around your 1st Birthday.  You just got up and took off.  We had to get a gate for the stairs, and watch you like a hawk.  You have been such a good little girl, and i'm so proud to have you as my daughter.  I couldn't ask for anything more than the 2 most perfect girls I have.




I can't wait to see what the next 20 months bring!

Ah Nicole, your post makes me cry! Just beautiful! It's hard to believe how fast time flies - my daughter is already 3 months old!
PS - you went into the hospital and had her 10 minutes later!!! OMG! I was in the hospital for about 23-24 hours and had 2 1/2 hours of pushing! Jealous!

Your little Lilah bug is just precious! I love that I finally met someone who spells Lilah the same way we do, most people just put Lila. Our girls would be the exact same age had mine not come so early...that's so funny! Can't wait to navigate around your blog & learn a little more about you & your sweet girls!
