Today, you are fifteen months old, and I want to tell you first that I absolutely love you.
Right now some of your favorite things are running, squawking, waving, giving kisses, and petting our kitty Ozzie. Your Daddy & I love hearing you say "Hi, Daddy" or "Hi, Ozzie" while waving. You "take care" of your baby dolls (and Mommy & Daddy) by patting them on the back. I already see the nurturing spirit I'm sure you will carry through your whole life.
I'm so proud that you have love and interest for other kids around you. You love giving kisses to your friends and waving at any kid you see while we are out and about. And, you're LEARNING to share... it's not easy, but we will get there.

I wanted to tell you in this letter that I know it's hard for you when I put you into time out. Trust me, it's hard for me, too. Especially since I know you are a genuinely GOOD girl. Right now we are working on our communication. I'm BLOWN away by what you understand. I ask you for something, and you go look for it for me. You are so impressive, and in time you will be able to tell me exactly what you need. Until then we will take time to try to understand each other more. You're doing so good with your signs and already understanding that sometimes we have to do something we don't like.

Happy fifteen months, Simone. I'm not sure how this time passed so quickly. Though, I am sure that it has been a ride I'd only want to take with someone as truly amazing as you are.
Ps. I love you forever.
