Two years and five months ago this miracle came into our world:
Dont let his blue as sky eyes and curly locks fool you, this angle is a devil in disquise. He is almost always dirty and always into things. He helps himself to whatever is in the fridge, climbs on the train table, throws food onto the floor and screams "no" when is told what to do. He has both his older brother and sister wrapped around his fingers, as well as his parents.
He climbs up ladders with no fear, copies his older siblings and cousins. He wants to be a big boy but is still a little man. But make no mistake, if you tell him he cannot do something- he will prove you wrong. He can and will.
He eats too much junk, loves to sip our coffees if left unattended and throw things into the tub. He makes more of a mess than the twins put together and loves to call other kids "baby" no matter how much older they are then him. His curls are almost always matted with juice and his feet are always black even though he wears shoes. He picks out his only clothes and loves to watch the same episode of Barney over and over (I know!).
He demands attention any where he goes and old and young, stranger or family he gets it. He was named after my father and he certainly has his personality, Fun, warm, sweet, fun, kind and outrageous.
I love him deeply and madly. I fought to have him and can't stand to see him grow so quickly. I want him to stay my baby forever.
Sometimes at bedtime when he has his blankey drapped over his chubby belly and calls for me to come lay with him in my bed, I will the image and feeling of his little arm around me gently patting my back, to stay with me forever. I know it is something I will feel again as I leave this Earth.
Our hearts are forever intertwined and I wouldn't have it any other way.
