Letters to My Son - December

Friday, December 20, 2013

I'm taking part in a blog circle with some other fabulous women, where each month I will include a letter to my baby boy along with a few pictures that capture the emotion and love I feel for him.  I hope that you will enjoy this feature as much I have enjoyed the process, and will also take the leap to the next blog in the circle each month.

Dearest Baby Boy,

This month I'm not featuring photos I took which is probably taboo for a photography blog circle, but photos that were taken at your new school by your teachers and I'm so thankful for that.  We made the decision to move you schools recently after having a few concerns with your last daycare and we have been so pleased with our decision.  You are learning and growing so much each day, and we just love your new teachers.

 Your new school emails us home a daily report that outlines all of your activities and best of all, the daily report includes several photos that were taken throughout your day.  As a mom I'm so happy to see those glimpses into your daily routines, and as a lover of documentation, of photographs, of memories, my heart beats faster just thinking that we have this record of your preschool days.

 I love seeing you experience new crafts, play on the playground, read with your little friends, all while smiling and being mentally and physically challenged, while being emotionally supported.  You come home each day so tired, but seemingly so fulfilled.

Keep learning, keep growing and I'll just be here loving you all along the way.


Now please take the leap to continue on with the circle and visit Chantell's blog to read her monthly letter.


  1. It sounds like the perfect fit! I love how they send pictures each day!

  2. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes with finding that perfect fit for your child. Our son's Kindergarten teacher shares photos each week of the kids and I love how looking at them helps prompt our son to tell us more and share things he might have forgotten.
    Your post is a great example of the power of photography, even if it is a cruddy cell phone or blurry---still so much power there!

  3. What a cutie! I'm glad you're happy with your decision to change schools, there is nothing more important than being comfortable with the people that are caring for him on a daily basis. Hope it continues to go well!

  4. Taboo? No way! It doesn't matter how the memories were captured, only that they were! <3 These are adorable! I'm so glad things have worked out at his new school - it's such a big deal, so to have a place that's perfect is awesome!
