You are my happy happy baby growing so big and strong. You are in love with all things outdoors and your favorite toys are the rocks and sticks in the backyard. You try to eat them but somehow have still been unsuccessful (thank the Lord and quick reflexes). When you first wake up you sit in your crib chatting to yourself and love chewing on the crib with those 2 little teeth. I love the tiny yet many scratch marks you leave behind.
I pick you up and you grin so big giving my neck the tightest squeeze and my hair the biggest tug. I will never forget your sweet eskimo kisses and the way you laugh at my lashes butterfly wishes.
Today you are closer to a toddler than to a baby and love being independent. Working so hard to take a step all alone. I think I am the one truly holding you back. I just can’t let go.
Your hands are more sticky than clean and wave bye-bye with a grin. That smile is always accompanied with a scrunched up nose. You snort when you laugh just like me, but your face has Dada written all over it.
You hardly can sit still to cuddle but when I wrap you up tight you lay your head on my chest and my heart flutters all over again. Those big blue eyes see the world so beautifully and with so much joy. There is nothing that stands in your way and I want you to always live just that way. Reaching for your dreams and shooting for the stars.
I love you to the moon.
