It appears that I have been too busy watching you learn to crawl, pull up on laundry baskets, fake a laugh and wave bye bye, clap your hands, sign "more" to get yourself some of those gerber puffs you love and discover the world around you to write down where you were at a month ago. But here we are now my dear. You are basically the cutest, smartest, sweetest baby on the face of the earth. Your Dada and I really in all reality believe this to be true. Sometimes we look at each other when you are chatting to yourself in the backseat and without a word we both know that we are feeling like we could burst from love.We both feel as if we've always known your little cherub cheeks and your tiny raspy voice our whole lives. Somewhere inside of us you were always there and now here you are. It is the best.
You have a quiet, patient determination about you. That mixed with the sweetest disposition makes for a very lovable baby. I am writing these traits I see in you down because as you get older there may be people, situations, events, that take you away from who you really are. Sometimes we just desperately want to fit in with everyone else. Sometimes someone we respect or admire says or does something that makes us question ourselves. What I want you to know my son is that from the moment your little personality started to show itself you have proved patient, determined, intuitive and sweet. You quietly practice all your new ideas in your crib. Rolling over, sitting up, army crawling, crawling, pulling up. All of it you have worked on first on your own and then later with me and Dada as your very proud audience. You are less interested in going fast and furious and more apt to discover the small details around you. You have these long beautiful fingers that are always moving. When I smile, you smile and vice versa so we end up smiling a lot of our days.
Because of you I feel powerful because I know I could and would do any darn thing for you. Because of you I know that I am capable of unconditional love - it shows up every morning and is present all throughout the night. You have already taught and given me so much. I am in debt forever.
I love you so much,
