I do a lot of annoying things, & one of the more annoying to most people is that I like to speak in letter format. Your Daddy hates it. I sit down next to him & tell him a letter of love. Most of the time he gives me a look that says, "You're so dumb right now." When he's feeling particularly sweet & loving, he'll answer me back in letter format. It's typically super, super short & he's rolling his eyes while he does it.
I love talking to you in letter form. The other day you were sitting on my bed, looking at pictures. I was getting ready in the bathroom & could see your cuteness as I popped my head out of the bathroom door.
"Dear Emma, I stinkin' love you. Love, Mommy"
You typically hate when I say that. It's not the letter format that annoys you. You're not old enough to think that I'm dumb for doing that yet. You just hate when I tell you I stinkin' love you. Typically you yell, very sternly, "Noooooooo, I'm not stinky! Don't stinky love me!" I just can't help it. I do stinkin' love you.
Today was different. You looked up at me & answered with a smile.
"Dear Mommy, I love you, & you're stinkin' cute." (giggle, giggle giggle)
You didn't sign your name, but it's OK. I know who the letter was from.
I love you so,
