Buba, my little adventurer I struggle to keep up with you these days. Your energy levels are far behind my comprehension too. We could run the fields all day and you would never be tired. Your giddiness has no end long after Mommy and Daddy are exhausted from entertaining it. Even when I try to take photos of us you are never still, always ready to take flight. The weather has been cold and windy beyond belief therefore your energy has been bursting at the seems to get outside and run it off. Yesterday, we decided to take a little Sunday stroll on the hilltop behind our house so you could do what you do best, run, scream, shout, explore and let it all out! Your giggles echoed over the hills along with the wind. This photo is the perfect capture of exactly how you are right now, running about, giggling with glee and wanted to be free. You are the little one that always wants to be creative and use your imagination to play make believe. I love when you make games up and you want everyone to join in. You have always been great at including everyone in around you, and never letting anyone feel left out. Your heart is pure gold when it comes to playing games. I love that about you.
Missy Moo, you have changed a lot in the last two weeks. I keep saying it to you how much you are changing on me. I don’t ever remember your brother changing literally right before my very eyes. Your hair grows longer, daily. Your voice gets a little more mature and deeper. You are so sturdy on your feet these days you walk around and are starting to explore so much more now. Our carrying days are over, and the stroller days less and less. Your little personality is coming out and you are starting to have a complete mind of your own on what you like and dislike. All I can say is please grow up a little slower, I feel like it is going too fast the second time around. Please let me soak a little more of your innocence and smallness in a little longer. I get emotional when I watch you now and realize what a big girl you have all the sudden become. It won’t be long before you follow your brother to school and it will be just Mommy left behind with the empty nest syndrome. I can already feel it brewing in the pit of my stomach. I love that even though you are becoming little miss independent you are still the best snuggler ever. You still want to climb in my lap and kiss and hug me. You still play with my hair while I carry you to the car. Those little affections I hope never go away. I also hope the way you look at me and your Daddy like we are your super heroes only grows stronger as you get older. My baby you will always be!
