Dear Baby Nate,
In a mere six months, you have wriggled, giggled and cooed your way into our hearts. Just the knowledge of your impeding arrival set our hearts aflutter last spring. Knowing your parents as we do, we could not wait to meet you, knowing that you as the combination of two such amazing people would be nothing short of absolutely wonderful.
We were not at all surprised to meet you and fall immediately in love! The girls adore you and cherish their time feeding, holding and playing with you. Your name is the first word out of Nicholas's mouth each morning, and he can't wait until you can truly play "firetrucks and peacey cars". We have been nothing less than amazed by you.
Yesterday "Uncle" Pete and I received the ultimate honor of witnessing your baptism as your Godparents. We are so proud and excited to be a part of your life in such an integral way. And while we may not always be close by physically, we will always be there for you in whatever way we can.
We love you, Little Guy Talbott!
"Auntie" Jen, "Uncle" Pete, Caitlin, Kelsey, Nicholas, and, yes, Bailey, the toddler-proof cat
P.S. You may not remember, but I was especially proud that Caitlin was able to sing during the ceremony, and a solo at that. Though I have a feeling she will share her gift of song again with you in the near future....
