Coco's First Birthday Week-Dear Coco


Every year on their birthdays I write a letter to my kids. When Landon and Coco are twenty-one I will give them all of them to read so they can know how I felt about them each year of their lives. It also helps to chronicle exactly what milestones they were hitting at the time.

I won't bore you with the whole thing...but here's a little but of it.


"Coco, when I found out I was having a girl I nearly fainted. They joy was so overwhelming, I literally felt light headed! Just seeing your dresses hanging in the closet, your chandelier, your pink room, makes me feel like life is good. Having you in my life fills me with a sense of purpose I have never known. I cannot wait for you to grow up, and for us to grow closer as mother and daughter. There are so many memories we will share. I just hope I don't bawl through every one!!"


Saturday is Coco's Minnie Mouse party, I will post a few pics. Thank you for helping me honor my Coco this week!!!

We are going to Disney next week. I will be sure to tell Minnie that Coco says Hello. Hope her family party is lots of fun:)

That is the best idea!! You are so great. I have a friend who does this for her children every year on the first day of school. You should add that to your letters. They will love reading them! xoxo

That is so sweet! My dad does something similar, but on Christmas Eve. I was supposed to get them when I turned 21 but my dad didn't want to stop so he is still writing away!
