Valentine’s Day Letter for Elliot

Dear Elliot,

Daddy and I have always kept our Valentine’s Day celebrations low key. I suppose we’ll carry on our tradition of exchanging cards and making a nice dinner at home.

Only this year, we have so much more to celebrate. YOU, my sweet girl.

You have filled our hearts with so much love.

If I had to choose just one word to describe you, it would be love. If I had to choose just one word to describe what you’ve taught me, it would be love.

If had to choose just one word to describe our relationship, it would be love. You are my definition of love. When I see your name, E-l-l-i-o-t, all I can think of is love. In my world, Elliot = love. Pure, unconditional love.

Baby girl, I wish you the happiest Valentine’s Day in Heaven!

I’m sending you the biggest hugs and kisses. In my mind, I have given you the same hugs and kisses a million times, every day since I said goodbye to you. And I will give them to you a million times, every day, until we meet again. I feel your hugs and kisses, too.

Thank you for being with me always. Thank you for loving me as much as I love you. Thank you for being my forever valentine and letting me be yours.


Together last Valentine’s Day: Mommy, 35 weeks pregnant with you, Elliot, and Coco.
