I just can’t get enough of you lately, my sweet boy. Last night you woke up in the middle of the night crying, which is really unusual. I was so tempted to bring you to my bed since Daddy was out of town working, just because I didn’t want to be away from you. I wanted to just hold you all night long, because the days of you being little are just passing by too quickly.
We watched a movie this morning, when you woke up a little earlier than normal. Just you and me, bud. You picked “Wreck It Ralph,” and we snuggled on the couch and watched the whole thing together before your brother woke up. It made my heart so happy. I think it was just what we both needed…some mommy and Max time, just us two. You sat with your arm around me for a lot of it, and told me what you saw. A dinosaur, a turtle, Fix it Felix. I asked you if you liked the movie, and you said “yep!”
You are such a funny little thing. And it almost seems like you are getting funnier as you talk more and more. If we say “I love you” you say it back now, every time, and it just gives me the best feeling. I dreamed of these days from the minute I found out you were on your way.
Lately you love trains a lot, and we’ve been to Tweetsie twice this year already. You play with your wooden train all day every day, and you tell me “train goes choo choo” and I just laugh a little because you are so smart and fun and I’m just so happy to be your momma.
I love how you are my sweet boy and my rough and tumble wild man all in one. It’s really the perfect way to be when you are a boy, and I wouldn’t have you be any other way. You mean the world to me, buddy. My little love. I adore sharing my days with you.
Don’t grow up too fast, okay?
I love you to the moon and back!
