Lundy Lu

My sweetie pie London,

While growing up and having me as your mother, you will quickly learn of my unprecedented and unrivaled ability to relate any topic or discussion to food. Sometimes I believe only your taste-buds can properly convey what your mind or words cannot. When I try to describe what I think of you as a baby, the words come out something like this:

"OOhhhy gooohy gooohy, I luv you I luv you I luv you, I wanna eatchoo eatchoo eatchoo."

It just doesn't get the point across effectively. And while I still think there is no possible way I will EVER be able to express my love for you and Ms. Lily, I think food does a better job than the above mentioned blabbering. So here we go:

If you were a tub of ice cream, you would be the most delightfully delicious tub of Ben and Jerry's half baked ice cream with extra cookie dough bits, atop a ooey gooey moist and chocolaty brownie- one that when consumed has no added caloric consequence or upset tummy inducing properties.





Any better? I didn't think so. Even that description fails to do you justice. But, if it is any consolation, when I was pregnant with you- after a long day of chasing your sister and waddling around- I would often sit- too often- at the end of the day and enjoy such an above mentioned sundae. Taking a deep breath as I would take the first bite I could close my eyes and enjoy a little peace and quiet with my treat. It felt like heaven. And you, once again my darling girl, bring a feeling of such peace and such heaven that multiplies the above mentioned ice cream fest ten thousand fold- ten trillion fold- ten infinity fold!


I love you so much. I love your Daddy so much. I love your sister Lily so much. You three combine to make one combination that no tub of Ben and Jerry's could even hope to capture...you are the perfect combination of happiness swirled and mushed together in the comfy white sheets of our bed on a Saturday morning. A scrumptious blend of Lily language "OOnn, twwooo, freeee, wak up Lundeeeen!! I laaaa youuuuuu" ("1, 2, 3, wake up London! I love you!), of Daddy hugs and messy morning hair, and London bright blue-eyed smiles...

You are the desserts of my life.
