Oh my sweet boy, you are growing up way too fast! I can’t believe you are already 22 months old! It’s so strange to think about that. The whole time we’ve been waiting on baby Drew we have been thinking about how you will be 23 months old when you become a big brother…and now that is only a (short) month away!
You’ve been so snuggly and clingy lately…maybe because you know you will have share me soon? I’m sure that at least part of it is because you have had a cold for the last week or so. Either way, I can’t complain about the extra snuggles. I miss you being tiny and just holding you all the time.
I am pretty sure you are going to start speaking in sentences any day now. You are constantly talking and you are picking up a new word about every day. Now when we say “I love you,” you say “eeeee youuuuu!” We know you are trying to say you love us, and we just can’t hear enough of it. Your newest favorite word is “happy” and you say it all the time…which is perfect because you are seriously the happiest little boy in the world, I am sure of it. You bring us so much joy.
You have been such a big helper for me lately. My doctor hasn’t let me do much over the last month, and we aren’t allowed to run errands without Daddy anymore. But on days where we have no choice you are the absolute best behaved sweet pea one can imagine. We went to get yarn a few weeks ago at Michael’s and you just held my hand and walked beside me, carrying a skein of yarn. People say I am going to have my hands full once Drew gets here between you and him, but I just can’t quite believe it. And even if I do, it will all be worth it and I will love every second of it. You make me so thankful to be a mommy…I couldn’t dream of being anything better.
I’ve already started worrying a little about how the next month and a half or so is going to be for you…there are going to be a lot of changes. You will become a big brother, and we are most likely going to be moving. I just pray that you will take it all in stride and that you will understand what is going on. I hope it isn’t too hard on you. I know it will be so good once you get used to things- we are going to be living really close to you Mimi, Pop, Nanny, Papaw, and so many other family members. It will probably make us all a little sad to be leaving this house. We have only lived here a year, but that year has been a full one…full of such wonderful memories that I will never forget. Everything is going to be fantastic though, I just know it.
I love you to the moon and back sweet boy.
