Oftentimes, I wonder if our darling little Izzy can really remember all the I LOVE YOUs and cuddling and hugging and soft words. And I often ask my husband if she will ever remember that we always whisper I LOVE YOU to her ears when she’s still sleeping early in the morning and late at nights, every morning when she wakes up and every night before she sleeps, when she gives us beautiful eyes, or when she runs to us, or when she looks at us with those adorable little eyes? We say I LOVE YOU even when she poops, or when she throws all her food. Will she remember that we kiss her softly and we smell her hair every chance we get? Will she remember that we give her lots of hugs and talk to her about our dreams for her?
When my daughter was five (5) months old we started teaching her sign language. We taught her the signs for milk, daddy, and mommy. To our delight, at eight (8) months she started signing for milk (or dede). At nine (9) months she started signing for daddy and mommy. On August 25, right after we gave her an advance first birthday party, she signed I LOVE YOU to us and we almost cried! I am one proud mommy!!! You see? She remembers!

Just in case you do not remember how much we love you, and just in case I don’t live long enough to tell you everyday, I hope this blog will live long enough for you to read. I love you so much my precious little baby. We love you so much! Always remember!
You know the feeling when you hear music and somehow it sounds so familiar that it feels like déjà vu, or it feels like you’ve heard it before from somewhere, or it feels like it’s a dream? Sometimes you have that warm feeling that you somehow knew the song or have heard it before. I personally think those are not dreams, or memories from another life, but very distant memories, like perhaps babyhood memories.
Here are some articles on why it’s important to give your baby lots of love, hugs, and kisses:
“Infants know they‘re loved and cared for when they‘re held, hugged, and kissed.”
“Physical, social and emotional interaction and contact during infancy is critically important in physical, neurological, sensory, cognitive, intellectual, social and emotional development. Indeed, babies need their “mamas” and all the love and attendant physical and emotional interaction they can get.
The more an infant is handled and held, the more it is stroked and spoken to, and the greater the visual divergence of their surroundings, the greater will be its resilience and capability to adapt to negative onslaughts and to withstand stressful extremes later in life.
Loving maternal contact promotes psychological development, maximizes emotional stability and will increase a persons overall intellectual capabilities and IQ.”
“You cannot hold a baby too much. A newborn needs time to adjust to his environment and you are the only safe, security he knows so he needs you now more than ever. “
