Merry 3rd Christmas my sweet baby girl. It is so wonderful to see your eyes still light up with happiness and joy at the simple pleasures in life: like when your dad walks into the room, or when your brothers lie beside you on the floor, or playing peek a boo, or when someone else you love comes over to see you. Oh how much you want to move yourself around the house like the independent spirit you are and how much it pains your mommy's heart to know that your little body, your vessel in this life, will not allow you to do so.
Your momma's heart breaks for you, sweet baby girl. When I hear your cough at night and struggle to breath properly. When I have to suction you to keep you comfortable. When you cry in your sleep at the unfairness of your disease, we cry with you.
Your momma's heart soars as high as the stars when you smile and talk to us. You teach us that no matter what life deals you, you can still smile. No matter how unfair life can be, you can still love and be loved.
Merry Christmas Gabrielle. Thank you for bringing to life the Christmas spirit in our family.
We love you.
