Dear Baby Blog


I really enjoy reading this blog. Melissa is a girl about my age that's from NC and recently moved back after living in San Francisco. She has a little girl about 6 months old and often puts into words things that I'm thinking but am not clever enough to write. Here's an example:

If I can give you one piece of advice, parents to be - take as many videos and photos as you can. Even when you are doing nothing more than staring at one another in the light of the late afternoon. Even when you’re baby is just sleeping. Even when you are tired or feel like it’s the 40th consecutive day of round the clock bottle feeding and diaper changing.

You will look back at those videos and realize that they are the contents of your heart’s treasure chest. The overflowing gold of your being.

You will find yourself laying in bed at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night watching with tears falling down your cheeks, remembering.
