A letter to my 2 month old...

My Sweet Peyton Rella,

8 weeks ago today you surprised us all by arriving a whole three weeks early.  Your entrance into this world was the exact opposite of your brothers.  It was easy and peaceful.  I remember looking at your daddy and saying "I feel like that should have been harder".  I've come to learn that this is exactly who you are.  You are such an easy and peaceful baby.  You barely ever cry and when you do it's because you're either hungry or just want to snuggle.  I thought having you would be hard, but you proved me wrong.  While things are certainly different around here, you fit right into our lives so perfectly.

Not only are you 8 weeks old today, but this also marks 8 weeks that you've been exclusively breastfed, and that's a milestone I'm going to celebrate.  I never thought in a million years I would make it this far, but like everything else you made it easy.  I also never thought I'd enjoy it as much as I do, but again you proved me wrong because breastfeeding you has been one of the best experiences of my life. You are growing and thriving and I'm so happy about that.

You have brought so much joy to our lives in these 8 short weeks.  You just started to smile when we talk to you and it is one of the cutest things ever.  Your big brother loves you so much and seeing the way he snuggles you and cares for you makes my heart melt.

Thank you miss Peyton, for simply making our lives so much better and giving us something we didn't even realize we were missing.... you! <3
