A letter to our baby girl

A letter to our baby girl on the day of her celebration of life:

January 21, 2015
Dear Khloë,

On the day you entered the world, your Daddy and I became the happiest people on earth. We were given a perfect little girl. We knew we would do anything for you, no matter what. You already had us wrapped around your finger. Watching you grow from a teeny baby into a toddler has been a privilege.

Our favourite part of the day was waking up and going into your room to be greeted by a big smile. You knew that we were there to give you a kiss and bring you out to the living room to play. And did you ever like to play! It didn’t matter that your body was weak; you still found a way to stuff Sharkie in your mouth, toss your Do Not Enter sign on the floor so we had to pick it up over and over again, or play xylophone and strum the guitar with Daddy. The look in your blue eyes whenever you discovered something new was priceless.

You were one lucky girl, let me tell you!

Khloë, you were the strongest little person we knew. You fought a terrible disease every single day, but didn’t let it get you down.

We have so many wonderful memories of you, Sweet Pea: your first laugh, dressing you up for photo shoots, playing peek-a-boo under a blanket, swimming in the tub, camping in Bar Harbor, and the first time you said “a-bah a-bah” which sounded suspiciously like a chicken bawking.

Daddy and I will never forget the light you brought to our lives. Today we celebrate your beautiful life.

Hugs and kisses,
Momma and Dadda
