Sweet son. I cannot even begin to tell you what a treasure you are in our life. I had no idea that there was a hole in my heart that you would come and fill.
My favorite thing about you is how joyful you are. You are just two months old and already you are laughing!! It seems that everyday you look for ways to smile and show your joy. You are still so little, but you have already begun to teach me.
When I'm old and my red hair has turned to white, one of my favorite memories from these newborn days will be this. At night when I'm putting you to sleep or on the occasions when you still wake in the night, I quietly walk the floors and look down into your little face. Suddenly you will break into the biggest smile, your little eyes all beady and shining. I didn't even think that it was possible for babies to want to smile in the dark. It's almost like you know that I'm there, fiercely loving you, praying for your heart, feeling so grateful that God chose me to be yours.
I hope you always know that your daddy and I feel so so grateful to call you ours. You are cherished and adored more than you will ever know.
Love you forever, sweet boy. . .
