Buba, my little rock collecting, sweatpants loving, car driving, hyper toddler, I love you! I hope that I say that to you enough. I hope that at the tender age of three and half you know just how much you mean to me and what I would do for you. My first born, my pregnancy, my first birth you were so many firsts for me and those memories are forever cherished and kept close to my heart. As you grow and change, I still want you to know you will always be my baby, my first, my son, and I will always be here for you, come what may. I hope I hold you enough and tell you it’s going to all be ok. I hope that I kiss you enough and show affection enough to you that you know it’s good to show affection and love towards family and friends. I wish for all the great accomplishments to come in your future and that you lead a happy fulfilled life and look back on your childhood and only have great things to say and recall. I hope this childhood I am making for you is a good one, a great one and one you know I tried my best to make beautiful for you.
Missy Moo, my forever adventurous, climbing, clumsy, almost full toddler, I love you too. You may be my second baby but I love you all the same. I love you from the moment I felt your kicks in my belly and that love keeps on growing each day. I watch in amazement how grown up you seem lately and worry did I miss it all, already. Your baby smell, your cooing, your crawling where has it all gone? I hope that I have enough of it in my memory to recall to you later what it meant to me when I found out I was having a baby girl. The excitement of having a girl in the family besides me. We are already buddies at best and you love sharing my purses and heels even at 20 months old. I know we never got one on one time while you were a baby like I did with Buba but I hope I have still made a big enough effort to show you just how much I love you. To show you you mean the world to me. You completed our family and our family of four dynamics are perfect for us. I try to not get carried away in the things that don’t matter as I know you and your brother are only small once, and it goes so fast. I hope you too look back and feel you have had the best childhood upbringing and have only amazing adventurous memories to share. (minus your eye splitting open). I hope I have created a beautiful life for you.
To you both, I love you dearly with my whole heart, and every inch of my body. I dream big for you both and I hope I have done a great job at providing for you both too. May you only have happy memories to recall!
