to miles. on the day before you become a big.



My sweet angel,
     
Today is your last day as an only child. I am excited for you to begin this new journey as a big brother but I am sad to see this chapter of our lives together come to an end. The chapter where you have me and daddy all to yourself every night. The chapter where I can always hold both of your hands with both of mine. The chapter where sometimes it really feels like there's nothing and no one else but the three of us .

     
This morning before our friends arrived for the day you wanted to snuggle with me on the couch. You like to do that when you wake up. I love it. My shirt doesn't quite fit all the way over my tummy anymore and you found my belly button quickly. You love the way it pokes out right now. You rubbed my tummy and talked to me in your sweetest  voice. You have the best voice baby. You tried to push my belly button back in (like you always do these days) and smiled the most precious smile when once again you discovered it pops right back out every time. Priceless.

     Tomorrow you will begin an exciting weekend spent with some of your very favorite people. I know you will be having lots of fun with your friends and that their mommies and daddies will keep you safe while daddy and I are away. I can't wait for you to meet your baby brother. I know you're just going to love him so. And he will be crazy for you. He's the luckiest little brother in the world to have you as his big. I know the two of you will be friends forever. 

     Sweetest Miles, you will always be my baby boy. Even when you're grown and have babies of your own. I love you. You have brought more sunshine into my life than I ever imagined possible. You are a shining star and the world is better because you are here. Remember I love you always.

Mommy

Gah! Way to make me cry! I am so so sad that Kiley won't be an only child come October, but very excited for us as a family and you captured those emotions beautifully in this letter. Good luck tomorrow!

That's awesome, Marquesas! I can't imagine having more than just CJ- and I CAN imagine how I would feel if I did- I'd sound a lot like you. Congrats on this new chapter in your life. I'll just live vicariously through all y'all who are brave enough to have more than one child (since I wasn't!) <3

Absolutely Heartfelt... I really hope you have that printed off somewhere for Miles when he gets bigger. I think he would love that. Good Luck today! When Chris was taking me to work out of no where is remembered you were being induced today and got excited for you =)
