This mama of yours can't seem to get enough of you. You are at such a fun (and oh-so sassy) age! You'll be two next month...what in the world?? And do you know what else is happening next month? You're going to be an older brother. A baby boy or girl is going to join our little family, and he or she is going to be so lucky to be your younger sibling! A lot is going to change when we bring that little one home...and this mama of yours prays every day that she can balance it all. Your baby brother or sister is going to take a lot of my time...I know this because when you were an infant you took up every second of my time, and I LOVED IT. I day dream sometimes about the days when you were an infant...just you & me at home :)
Brooks, please know that I'm going to do my best to care for the both of you. It's going to be a learning process for all of us I think. Goodness I'm getting a lump in my throat as I type this... While lots will change, there will be much that will stay the same...we'll still be able to mold play-doh together (I'll probably just have one hand available), we'll still have multiple dance parties together every day, we'll still have our little grocery store dates and share a donut from the bakery (little one will stay home with Daddy), we'll still enjoy plenty of snuggles after your bath time......and when your Daddy comes home from work, I know you two are still going to be over-the-moon excited to see each other! The other day you ran into his arms and he threw you in the air! In your little bomber hat, you said, "Moe! Moe!" (more) and practically gave Dad his second workout for the day with all those flying lessons ;)
People say change is the only constant in life...and that is oh-so true. I watch you learn, change, and grow more every day! But one thing that you will always have is my love for you. ALWAYS.
PS - You were so adorable yesterday...after "writing" your own little love notes on the back of your Valentines, we sent them off in the mail to your sweet Grandparents. You seemed so proud carrying them into the post office :)
