Falling in love is essentially to be granted a vision of the beauty of another person’s individuality. This vision fills us with reverence, and simultaneously with a powerful attraction for the object whose beauty has been perceived. Literally, to love another person means to see her beauty, to discover the secret of her personality. This vision is so convincing that we say, 'Never shall I forget it.' - Dietrich von Hildebrand

Celine Evelyn: 8 months


Dear Celine,

You are increasingly hilarious. We know that you've got teeth coming in soon, mainly because you're constantly drooling and gumming everything. You're army crawling into the next room now and we know it won't be long until we're chasing you around the house.

You can play quietly in the crib or on the blanket by yourself, but you prefer when you can see that you're not alone. You've figured out how to push big buttons like on your aquarium or exersaucer. Your go-to toys right now are the stacking rings and of course, our phones.

You're talking so much more than last month it is unbelievable. You weren't feeling well for a couple of days last month and as soon as you got your energy back, it has not gone away. You always have something to say, whether it is positive or negative :) I hope you always talk to us this much about your thoughts and opinions!

You now reach for us when you want us to pick you up... which is my favorite. Celiney, we will always be here to pick you up and snuggle you. We love you oh so very much. Thank you for filling our home with SO MUCH JOY.

Love love love,

Mom
