Every day I wake up look at my sleeping baby and smile. He is the best part of everything. Funny how your child becomes the center of your universe:
Mr. E. J. V. – Mr. Personality – his faces these days are hysterical… He is the light of my life. At 10 months he has 7 teeth that are totally popped through, a few more on the way… A wild sense of humor with funny fuzzy LONG hairs to match. He is smart, talkative, social, loving, and I simply cannot imagine my life without him.
This month his curiosity has absolutely skyrocketed and it grows and grows each day. He is into everything, he points when he wants something, and makes noises we make like coughs and sneezes *ah cho*. He absolutely says Mmma-Ma and Dadadadada. Hector believes he says Hec-tor too and tells me I need to only call him daddy.
He is such a sweet boy, always. I’m a lucky girl. When out and about it takes in his surroundings and he just stares and batts his eyelashes – especially at the blonds. 🙂
He loves bathtime, playtime, food time and cuddle time. We had a bit of an issue with diaper changing time but that has fizzled somewhat. He is all set in his big boy car seats and is eating much more solid chunky food.
He makes my heart melt, each and everyday.
You have really taught me what life is all about. It is about relationships, loved ones, smiles, hugs and kisses. You have taught me how to measure success: your giggles, your amazing growth, your happiness and safety. You teach me more everyday then I could ever teach myself. I have never been more proud then right now. I’m so lucky to be raising such a wonderfully healthy baby boy. You are going to do great things, I can feel it.
I want you to dream big. I want you to be everything and anything you want to be. I want you to give back to communities and those who have less than you. I want you to learn to sail a sailboat, drive stick shift, throw a mean curve ball and learn how to fly a plane. I want you to travel the world and learn about cultures, I want you to read and chat about history with Auntie Cole… I want Jackson and baby no name to smile huge when they see you knowing they have a lifelong friend in you.
I want you to always feel safe in my arms, and I want to give you the world. There are so many wants I have for you. I could never list them all but the one thing I want you to know more then anything else.. is that I love you. SO much that I feel it deep in my bones way down into my soul, and I will always love you… Even when you make mistakes, messes and tell me things I don’t want to hear.
Thank you for being my son. You have changed my life in so many ways and even though I thought I wasn’t ready for you… you knew I was. You trusted me the second you were placed on my chest 10 months ago. I love the way you can wrap your arms around my neck and look for comfort on my chest. I hope you always cling to me… I know over the years the definition of cling will change, but my love for you will always grow stronger like it does each day.
I love you my little bean. xoxo
