Dear Talitha {eleven months}

Dear Talitha,

You have about two ounces of shyness in you. Your sister has never had a moment of shyness in her life, so when you act bashful I find it novel and super sweet.

When we meet strangers, or even visit relatives you haven't seen in a while, you bury your  head in my shoulder and look at them out of the corner of your eye with a half-smile. It's basically the cutest thing ever. After a minute or so, you will usually pop up and give them a full smile or a wave once you've deemed them safe.

I won't be able to protect you from all the hardships of this world, but I hope I'll always be a source of comfort for you. While you may not always nuzzle your head into the curve of my neck, I will always be a safe place where you can find love, wisdom, and grace. The world will be full of strangers and dangers all your days, but I will point you to a God who is bigger than the bad things and stronger than the scary things.

I love you, Sweet T.
