Valentine’s Day

Dear Alison,

Happy 1st Valentine’s Day. This is a special time of year where we take a moment to appreciate everyone we love. You are 5 months old, and I hope you are able to recognize how much mommy and daddy love you.

You have been sick for the past 2 days with a fever, and you are having difficulty breathing because of your runny nose and cough. Mommy has been up all night checking your temperature while you are sleeping. Daddy took the day off from work and is spending the day by your side. We have been constantly wiping your nose and keeping you clean despite being covered in vomit ourselves. It breaks our heart to see you like this.

This is the first time you are sick, and you are trying your best to be your happy self. You continue to smile, and your big brown eyes still sparkle when you look at us. You do not ask for much. You barely cry these days even though we know you are not feeling well. We are giving you lots of hugs and kisses. I hope you feel safe and loved.

Love,

Mommy and Daddy
