Because I don't want to forget one second of how perfect you two are to me. Just as you are.
I love the way you smell like cinnamon and strawberries all day long from your oatmeal mixed with yogurt in the mornings.
I love the way you crawl into my bed in the middle of the night and squish as close as possible to me.
I love that you still want me to hold you even though you are my big big four year old.
I love the way you have freckles only one one side of your sweet face. Your perfect perfect sweet face.
I love that you say your prayers now without being asked. You know He is there and you are beginning to count on Him.
I love to listen to you making plans big and small. I hope one day you live them. Every last one.
I love your tricks.
Your early morning sweetness.
I love the pictures you draw and the way you are learning how to spell everything.
I love the way you love to play outdoors and get muddy.
You are everything a mother could hope for in a baby boy.
I hope I tell you enough.
You are still my baby.
And you always will be.
And to you sweet baby brother...
I love your happy happy face.
You are my smiley, silly little buddy.
I am so happy to be your mommy.
I love your voice.
The way you say "Wha?"
The way you say "Pez Mama. Pez Dada. Bye Bye. Bapple. Yay" (that one means yes)
I love the way you smile so sweetly as you're falling asleep. I am happy that you have good things to think of as you drift away.
I love chasing you around our house.
It is so easy and wonderful to make you laugh baby.
I love your squishy baby booty.
The way you say "Hot" anytime anything hurts.
I love the way you sing the wheels on the bus. And Johnny works with one hammer.
You Love music.
I love it when you help me unload the dishwasher. Standing in the door, handing me every dish you can reach.
The way you laugh maniacally when you find a knife or an apple peeler.. anything dangerous really.
I love when you help me sort laundry and you call out "Mama. Dada." as you find clothes that belong to each of us.
I love you boys. You light up my life. And your Daddy is quite crazy about you too.
