Happy New Year

Dear Wil,

I wrote you a letter one year ago tonight. Do you remember? I cannot believe another year has gone by. You will be 2 years old in less than three months AND you will be a big brother!

You are asleep in your cozy big boy bed, hopefully dreaming sweet dreams. You're wearing your new jammies that read, "Daddy's little helper", which sums up your life pretty well. Tonight you insisted that your Daddy could indeed fix your nuk, which you bit threw and "doke" (broke). You adore your Daddy! I think I am the only person in the world who truly sees the extraordinary bond you have with him. How lucky you both are...

I love you my sweet little monster baby. I love your smile. I love your laugh... You know,the one you let out when I tickle you!?! I love your chubby belly and your fat feet. I love how friendly you are and that you are always so happy. You love people (sometimes a little too much - pleeeease stop hitting and tackling everyone you come across) but you mostly love your momma and dada. You look like your Daddy, but act just like me, which I secretly love - outgoing and a wee bit sassy ~ ok, a lot sassy, but just sometimes. You can do so many new things, I would be here forever if I listed them all. You still continue to amaze me every second of every day. I still can't believe you belong to me.

I look forward to another year with you and can't even imagine what that year will bring. I only have one request... Could you stop growing and changing so quickly? I can't keep up and it makes me a little sad.

I love you Wilby,
Mom (that's what you call me these days - p.s. I don't like it. I am Mommy or Momma. Ok. Thanks!)

  1. Wil has brought so much happiness and fun into our lives. Everytime we see him, Wil has that smile that makes you want to grab him and just kiss and squeeze him. It's hard to believe another year has gone by and he will be 2 years old. Looking forward to the next year of excitement with Wil and his little brother.
    Love you, Grama & Poppa
