Well, in Whoville they say...

Dear Evelyn,

When you're older you'll see the Christmas classic 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas.' Towards the end of the cartoon, there is the line:

Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day.
That's exactly how I felt on the day you were born and, amazingly, it keeps happening. Thanks for teaching your Momma about how much love she is capable of feeling.
I love your little voice, your smiles, the cleft in your chin, how you snuggle into my arms.
I love your sense of humor, the curiosity in your eyes, the excitement at simple things like fingers and toes.
I love holding you while you nurse.
I love your satisfied face as you fall asleep after.

I love you.
