Dear Riley,

Every night while you're sleeping, before we go to bed, your Daddy and I walk into your dark, quiet room. We watch you sleeping peacefully. I kiss your cheek and make sure you are all covered up. When I kiss you, I try to commit to memory how wonderful you smell--clean from your bath and your clean pajamas that smell like Dreft and Downy--THAT is the best smell in the world!

Sometimes we watch you for a little bit, lying there so still (you don't do that very often).

Some nights when we get up there, you have moved off of your mattress (which lays on the floor) and made a little spot for yourself surrounded by Lion and Bevo. Your head is on your pillow and Dog in your grip. We put you, Dog, and your pillow back on your bed. You wake up just enough to wrap your arms around our necks (and we love that) and then go back to sleep.

Sweet Dreams Little Man.

We love you,
Mommy and Dada
