Letter to Lacey: Thirty Eight Months

Fat Mum Slim /

Dear Lacey,

Oh my! Look at how big you’ve gotten! You’re so cheeky. Any time anyone sees you, even if they haven’t seen you for a week they say, “Wow, she’s so big now!” You must be going through constant little growth spurts.

I love the cute little things you say. I need to start writing them down because I so quickly forget what you’ve said. There are a few you say all the time, like when someone knocks at the door, “Who body is it?”

Or I’ll be busy downstairs and you’ll call my name over and over again from upstairs, “Mum, mum, mum, mum, mum…” Eventually I’ll say, “Yes Lacey?”

“Nevermind mum.”

You like to push our buttons. Some day you take everything we have. Some days are better than others. One minute you can be making us as mad as mad, and the next we’re smirking at your cuteness. Oh, you have us wrapped around your little finger.

We love you Miss Lacey. Happy 38 months.

Mama. xx

  • lovely letter…

  • Your letters are something else….Lacey is one very lucky little girl.

  • Gorgeous…and so important to write these things down. I wish I had down it more with the older boys as they change so quickly. Thanks for motivating to do it more with the younger ones! I also watched a home video the other day of my eldest son and it's amazing how you forget some of the little but precious ways they used to say and do things 🙂

    So cute! and love the dress. I have a 2 & a half year old daughter and my mum was forever telling me to write things down. So now l have a book next to my bed ( so l remember) and will jot funny things ect… down.

    P.S . l love how you call Lacey by her name in your blog it's such a beautiful name (instead of a nickname)

  • I think it is awesome that you write a letter to your little girl. How i wish i did that with my own.

  • these photos are so lovely. what sweet words for your little girl. this made me smile!

  • She is such a cutie.

  • I love reading your monthly letters. Just beautiful! Are you planning on publishing them for her when she is older?

    I very much wished I had done the same for each of my children! Husband does a yearly video for them which is a great summary, but sometimes words are much better.

    Beautiful, gorgeous, happy little girl you have!
