Journal reads: I originally had a journal started when you were little and this is what I wrote for three months. Ivy, it has been so amazing to watch you grow and flourish from a cute little blob to this little person. You laugh, smile and just melt mommy & daddy’s heart. You do cute things like hanging on tight with your little fists to our shirts while making these little squealing noises with your tongue stuck out. You have also started acting a bit shy to other people already, which makes me feel bad, but at the same time makes me feel so loved because you want and need mommy’s attention.
