Dear Kiah,

Some things have been on my mind lately, and I wanted to write them to you, just in case you didn't know. This might seem strange or hard to believe, but sometimes Mommy has a hard time expressing her feelings. I am not all that good and communicating with people, through speaking especially, (which is just one of the reasons I started this blog), I find it a lot easier to write what I cant seem to say at times. Although I try my very best to show my love for you and your brothers through lots of hugsies and kissies and by making sure to tell you I love you often each day, I somehow feel I am lacking in really expressing it.

To you especially, Kiah. Maybe its because you are the oldest, and you are very independent. Maybe its because your brothers can be such a handful and "mommy hogs". Maybe its because you are SO much like me, and that is so strange to me... No matter the reason, though, I need you to know, and I am sure you DO know this, but just in case you DIDN'T know, or in case you ever forget or feel the need to think twice about it; I LOVE you so much Kiah.

Just in case you didn't know when I was pregnant with you, I thought you were going to be a boy. I was "sure" of it. I wanted to have a little boy so badly. But I cant even say enough how GLAD I am that God gave me YOU, a precious little girl instead. My only girl, My little princess, My little "season's beginning". That's the meaning of your name, by the way, (Season's beginning), just in case you didn't know. And you really were the beginning to a new season in my life. I didn't know this at first, but you help change me for the better. You are a blessing and a gift. I hope you will always remember that.

 Just in case you didn't know, Kiah, I am beyond proud of you. You are a brilliant child, and I'm not just saying that because you are my child and I'm partial. ;) You have always, ALWAYS, stood out as as quick learner, over achiever, out going, smart, loving, friendly, beautiful girl! You truly could do anything you set your mind to. I know God will be able to use you for wonderful things, because your heart is His. And you shine His light everyday. I am so proud of the young lady that you are.

Just in case you didn't know, you are a lot like me. We are also very different. I was always shy and self conscience, you are very popular and out going. But in the sense of our attitudes, oh boy, let me tell you... You got yours from me! You are a little artist, you love to draw... You get that from me, I did that too. Still do. ;) Its funny how I look at you, your behavior, the silly things you do and say and I can see a memory of myself in you. Brings tears to my eyes thinking about that... I am not quite sure why, but it does! Maybe its because when I see myself in you, I also see a better version of myself. And that makes me happy and oh so proud, and well, emotional!

Just in case you didn't know, Kiah, you are and always will be my "baby girl". My Kiah-girl. My forever princess. I am loving watching you grow up. I bet you didn't know that when you were a baby EVERYONE and I am NOT exaggerating (you can ask any one of your aunts and Nani too, they will tell you) EVERYONE who saw you, told me that you were the most beautiful baby they had ever seen! And you still are just amazingly gorgeous. And not just because you really are beautiful on the outside, because you are! But also because you have a beautiful heart, you are kind, friendly to everyone, you are smart, and you have such great faith in God!

I could probably go on and on and mush and gush over you Ki-Pie. ♥ But I'm already crying over here, so I'll stop for now and leave it at this last thought; Kiah, just in case you didn't know, you are a wonderful, beautiful, brilliant girl. NEVER let anyone tell you or make you feel any different. God has a plan for you and your life, it says right there in His word {Jeremiah 29:11} and God made you special, just the way you are, for a reason. Never doubt that. Never doubt the love that HE has for you and that we (me, daddy and your whole family) has for you. If you tune your heart to God's he will bless you, and He will do great things through you.

Love Always,


  1. I'm much better at expressing myself in writing than I am speaking. I like that you are recording things like this for your kids.
    She looks darling too!

    I'd love for you to link up to WKWW-What Kids Wore Wednesday Link Party this week at ONE little MOMMA.



  2. SO beautiful Maria-Isabel! Kiah is going to be so touched when she reads this. You are a wonderful Mommy :)

  3. She is STUNNING!!! What a beauty!

  4. Aww. You made me tear up with this sweet post, Maria. You're such a loving mama, and I'm sure that even if you don't verbalize it, your kids KNOW how you feel about them, and even more importantly, just how very special they are to God.


Thanks for stopping by Mommy Made. I hope you enjoyed this post. I look forward to hearing from you!
