No Hobbits Here

My dearest baby daughter,
As I carry you around the house, joy bubbles in my heart, prompting me to softly whisper in your ear, "Princess, I love you so much! You are so precious!"
And then I stop, worried, because this reminds me of the character Gollum, from The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein. Gollum is protrayed as a very degenerative character, constantly hissing "precious, precious" to his magic ring. I have no desire to be a Gollum, and yet my dear, I can't help but say it. You are...most precious!!
Love & Kisses,
