You are such a sweet and amazing little man. You are almost always so happy and excited about life. You hate to take naps- I think you feel like you’re missing out on something exciting if you sleep. You love your sister so much, you always have to do stuff just like her, even paint your nails like her! (Daddy let me paint just one toenail to make you happy and I loved it!) You call her “Kinny,” that is the way you say her name, and we love it so much we all started calling her that. I hope that you always love your sister that much, and that you will always be her “big brother”- after all, you are 6 minutes older! Please always watch out for her and protect her.
You do so many things that make your Daddy and me laugh and smile: You absolutely love to read books, even when you were very little you would sit in our laps and look at the pictures- I hope you become a book worm like me. You are such a good eater and will try almost anything. Your favorite thing to eat right now is katsup- you even dip your bananas in katsup! (ewww, gross!) At night before bedtime you like to cuddle with us in the rocking chair. That is my favorite time of the day, when I get to snuggle with you. I sing you our lullabye and you tell me “mommy sing” and then you say “Gahm sing” and then you sing part of it to me, too- I absolutely love it when you sing with your very sweet voice. And when we pray together and you say "Ah-men!" with such conviction, it makes my heart burst. Your new favorite best friend is your Polar Bear stuffed animal, you don’t want to go anywhere without him! And you call all the animals by the sound they make- you call monkeys “ah-ahs!” When you go to bed, you cuddle with your Jojo in the crook of your neck. You are a very good helper and like to help me sweep the floor and vacuum, and put things away and it makes me so happy that you are so helpful- I hope you always try to help people when you are older, too. You give very sweet kisses, and you melt my heart when you smile at me. You are a very creative and are imaginative when you play, like you swoop the airplane through the air doing loop-de-loops and make engine noises, and you try to fix things with your tools or make soup with your juice in bowls. You try to say everything Mommy and Daddy say, and you are very good at trying new, big words! You also want to be so big- you try to climb you’re your chair by yourself and buckle your car seat all by yourself, you want to use a big fork for dinner and don’t want to wear a bib anymore (please don’t grow up too fast!) Sometimes you are so fearless and want to do everything on your own, but then sometimes you come running back to my arms to protect you. I hope you will always come to us when you need help or are scared. Your giggles and belly laugh fill me up with happiness. I want to tickle you all day just to hear you laugh! You are so very smart- you figure stuff out all on your own, like how to plug stuff in and how to turn in your toy vacuum cleaner... I think you are going to be an engineer like your Daddy. Your favorite thing to watch (when you stop long enough to watch tv) is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and you get so excited when you see anything Mickey! We call you Mam (that’s your sister’s name for you, and it’s so sweet!), Monkey, Bugaboo, and sometimes just Bugga, and sometimes when you’re in big trouble… Graham Michael! But that isn’t very often J
You are one of the most fantastic and sweet little guys I know, and I love being your mommy. You make me so proud every day, and I love watching you become the little man you are meant to be.
I love you with all my heart,
your sweet face melts my heart <3
