Today you are eight months and 4 days old. You have been a part of our world for 246 days.
There have been a lot of smiles, a lot of laughs and a lot of tears. You have grown from our little baby boy into our little man. I still find it hard to believe you are already eight months old. In just a few short months, you will turn one.
I have been meaning to write you a letter like this – but just never found the time. I decided it was time to make the time. I want to remember how I felt at this point in your life and one day, I want you to know how I felt as well.
Every day with you is a blessing. I try my best to treasure every moment…every breath. Time is flying by. You have changed so much since you were born and I know that you will continue to change as time goes on. There is so much about you at this age that I hope I never forget. There is so much about this age that I love…
I love when I come to pick you up at daycare and as soon as you see me – you get this huge grin on your face and you lift up your arms so I can pick you up.
I love how you wake me and daddy up in the morning with your babbling and by lifting up your legs and slamming them down in the pack n play.
I love that you are the last thing I see every night before I go to sleep and usually the first thing I see in the morning.
I love how you just love to play. Ever since you learned to sit up on your own, you have become a new baby.
I love when we go to bed and I feed you your night bottle and when you are done, you lie on my chest asleep and breathing so deeply. I never want to put you down.
I love when we feed you vegetables and you get more of the food on you then in your mouth. Especially when you rub your eyes with food covered hands…
I love how you moan when are falling asleep.
I love when you smile. You have the best smile ever. When you smile at me, my heart melts.
I love how when you play you will turn to me and put your hands in my lap so that I will pick you up.
I love how peaceful you look while you are sleeping. I wonder what you dream about.
I love when you laugh. Especially when you laugh at daddy. It makes me so proud to see how much fun you have with him.
I love your chunky little thighs and your big belly. I am going to be sad when you lose those.
I love how excited you get when you see your bottle. You definitely like to eat.
I love how everyone who meets you just loves you. You have such a great personality and a wonderful temperament.
I could go on and on. I guess I just love everything about you.
Life is short and you never know when it will be taken from you – but I want to make sure you know how much I love you and how proud I am to be your mother.
With all my love,
