Dear Brooks,

Hi sweet boy! My new friend Britney sent me this video on facebook, and she said it made her think of you and me :) It brought tears to my eyes...you've made me the luckiest mommy in the whole entire world.


If you listened to it, did you just love it Brooks?? Just in case, here are the lyrics to the song...I bolded the words that really made me smile, which is just about all of it :)

"HOURGLASS" by Mindy Gledhill

Little boy, when you speak
I can't help but kiss your cheeks
I love the way you grab my hands
And tell me all about your plans

Rocket high, comets fly
You and I could take a ride
And fly away to Neverland

And give our best to Peter Pan

When you reach for the stars
Don't forget who you are
And please don't turn around and grow up way too fast

See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life's an hourglass
Life's an hourglass

Story's read, prayer is said
Close your eyes sleepyhead
While angels linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings

Just like you, I was small
Not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask

When you reach for the stars
Don't forget who you are
And please don't turn around and grow up way too fast
See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life's an hourglass
Life's an hourglass

So these two pictures above, they are you! They captured sweet memories of you :) The first is when you were just a few days old...it's one of my favorites of you, you're glowing :) And I love your wrinkly forehead and little legs! The second photo is of you this past week. You love running around with little or now clothing...which is why you're not wearing pants, silly boy. I love how it shows your wonderfully chubby legs and how you've grown since being a tiny baby.

Well sweetheart, tomorrow is my second Mother's Day with you. I've looked forward to being a mom all my life...thank you for making my dreams come true. It is an honor to be your mother. Every memory we've had together is so precious to me, and just thinking of the many more to come makes my heart smile! Each and every day, I thank my Heavenly Father for letting me watch over you. Love you forever son!

Love,
Mom

Oh my goodness, what a perfect song for a perfect little boy. I have a feeling I will have to share it with Hudson on my blog (if that is okay?) I love it so much. It had me crying on my keyboard.

Haley, you are the sweetest little Mama ever. Brooks is lucky to have you....I know he will always feel so LOVED..and that is the most important thing in life.

I hope you had the HAPPIEST Mother's Day!!
