So, I found this really cool idea on Cutest Kid Ever today. She writes to her youngsters every Saturday. While I love the idea, I can't guarantee I can limit it to Saturday, so I think I will just reserve it for when I wanna say something special about my baby boy.
You have changed so much in the last few months! Before we left for our trip, in April, you were repeating words without much meaning. We went on our trip and I watched as you blossomed and the world around you became more exciting because you began telling me all about it! Sometimes I think that being around more and different people helps you develop your vocabulary because it seems like every time you go on a trip it takes a big leap.
You have gone from single words, to now two and three word strings with a lot of meaning. You told me just yesterday "I get you!" That was one of the most precious things I have ever heard. When you got stuck in your chair, I asked you "Are you stuck?" and you turned it around and said "I stuck"! Oh my goodness. You're vocabulary is growing so fast, I can't even remember all of the words you have learned since Daddy has been away. He is going to be so surprised when you sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to yourself. You don't know that I know you can sing that. But I hear you when you are playing and singing it to yourself. Another of the most precious things I have ever heard.
I used to get really sad that I was losing my baby. But I am so excited to have my precocious little toddler to take his place. I love you baby..more than you will ever know!
