You are the best daddy in the world. No one can get me to smile like you can-I love playing with you! I know mommy really appreciates when you come home at night and let her go to bed while you take care of me. However, we need to discuss the swaddling job you did the other night. When I wake up in the morning it is not supposed to look like this.
Also, when you put my pajamas on, I know from this side it looks like you did it the right way...
but you can see the problem from this view.
I know sometimes I am wiggly and it is hard to get right, you are doing a great job. See ya tonight!
(Now a letter from mommy)
Dearest skinny pants,
It has been 5 long months since I have been held in your denim embrace. Each day of those 5 months I looked up at you longingly, wondering when we could be together once more. I would think of all the memories we have made together, you have been a big part of my life as my favorite pair of jeans. But alas, it seemed as though fate (and childbirth) would tear us apart forever. A few weeks ago, when the scale informed me I was a mere 5 lbs from pre-Kerrigan weight I dusted you off and tried you on...or at least attempted to try you on (with no success). Tears were shed that day.
However, yesterday, I put on some of my "fat pants" and realized there appeared to be a little extra wiggle room. With determination written all over my face, I once more took you down from your shelf. It only took some Crisco, a wrench, some chicken wire and MacGyver-like maneuvers and you FIT!!! I was even able to button you...miracle of all miracles.
Granted, I do have some work to do before you and me are completely comfortable with one another- but I look forward to the memories we will once more make together!
