Eight.

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.



Dear Sweet Cheeks,

My happy baby boy! From the moment you wake up until the moment you close your eyes at night, you are ALL smiles. You smile and laugh and coo all day long. Never a care in the world! (Unless you want a bottle, then you let me know loud and clear!)

This past month has been a busy one. You have learned to pull up on the couch, my legs, your toys, anything within reach! Then you giggle and cackle when you stand on your own two feet. You make mama so proud! We have started letting you put yourself to sleep. I absolutely hate laying you in your crib without first rocking you to sleep, but this is better for you. You sleep better. You sleep longer. I love to go in at night and watch you sleep. You sleep on your stomach, like me. And you have tiny baby snores, like daddy. Except daddy's snores are not near as adorable as yours.

I wish I could freeze time in this moment. Everything in our lives is perfect. You are so full of awe and wonder. I love taking you to run errands with me. I love letting you sit on my lap when we go to restaurants. I love reading you books. I love when you lean over and give me slobbery baby kisses for no reason. I love being your mommy. I love watching you grow.

Sometimes when the room is quiet, and daddy and I are watching you, daddy leans over to me and whispers "We made that". We made YOU. Such a perfect little person. That's something I am sure I will be in awe of until my heart stops beating. You, my little man, are everything I ever wanted. I am so, so lucky you are here with me.

Love always,
Mommy
