My first real love. The moment I saw you and your sweet pouty lips and big eyes I knew I would never be the same. You made me a mommy and from that moment I wanted to be the best for you. We’ve been through a lot, though you were too little to notice, and for that I am so grateful. Now you’re growing so much every day. I love experiencing the world through your inquisitive mind. I hope you always have such joy in learning. You amaze me every day, saying big words or figuring out big ideas, but especially the way you understand how someone is feeling. You are so brave. You stand up for others and for yourself. I hope you always stay so strong. I learn from you every day. Thank you for being patient with me while I learn to take my time with you. It’s too fun and beautiful to rush through the day. You just became a big sister and I have loved seeing how proud you are and how much you love Jonas. I am so lucky to get to spend my days with you. I love you!
Sweet boy. Little man. Happy dude. Your joy inspires and amazes me every day. I’ve never seen such a happy baby. I love the way you smile at me. So big and full of love. Your eyes twinkle when you smile just like your Daddy’s. You are so easy to love. You’re starting to make lots of little singing sounds and I am so excited to hear your voice. May you always be so proud and boisterous. When I found out that you have a hearing loss, I was sad and worried that you would “miss out” on so many things. But now I see that you’ve always been happy just the way you are, and I hope that you will carry that joy throughout your whole life. I want you to have the richest experiences and to always reach for what you love. You have some amazing people who love you very much, and we are all so happy you’re here. I can’t wait to get to know your sweet soul as you grow up into a brave and energetic boy. I am so lucky I get to be your mom and experience your joy every day. To me, you are perfect. I love you!
