Because it’s Mother’s Day week and it’s been forever since I’ve written a letter to my son on this blog, I figured the timing was just about right!
You are the reason I became a Mother. Over the past 2.5 years, you have brought so much laughter, joy, love, and happiness to my heart that I can’t thank you enough. It hasn’t been an easy ride and never did I ever think parenting could be so hard, yet rewarding at the same time. At this moment, we are trying to get you potty trained before your little sibling comes along, but you are refusing to sit on the potty and go for us. Every day, you learn new words and phrases and constantly amaze us at the rate you are learning things. You can pretty much repeat anything we say and even long sentences as well. You can sing many songs by heart and your smile lights up a room. You like to sleep with Spencer, Owl and Bear and you line up all of your cars along the side of your toddler bed before going to bed each night. You are very particular about having Austin’s car, new car, purple car and countless others with you at all times. You have your own opinions from the shoes you want to wear, the foods you want to eat, the time you want to get up, and what you want Mommy and Daddy to get for you. You’ve been really lucky to have both sets of grandparents visit you this year and watch you. You’ve had countless ear infections and even had a fever recently, and your Mommy and Daddy are considering getting you tubes to help out with the drainage, but that’s still up in the air for now. You know that there’s a “baby” inside of Mommy, but I’m not sure if you REALLY know what that means. You will always be my first little love and even when your sibling comes along I will always cherish the times we had when it was just the 3 of us. You will always be my baby and I’ll be here for you no matter what.
