Dear Bennett & Morgan,
Oh my gosh, it’s been ONE great year!!! I can’t BELIEVE you guys turn ONE any day now! It just f l e w by!
Bennett, recently someone stole my baby and replaced him with a little boy. You are sooooo big! You got your first haircut last week, and you look like a little boy. Waaaaah!!!!! You are really funny these days. Every night at bedtime when it’s time to hand you off to grandma for your bottle, you start shaking your head like you’re saying NO, but you’re smiling and laughing the whole time you’re doing it! It’s become this little bedtime game. You give me the sweetest, big wet kisses on my face whenever I say, “Kisses!” And you’re crawling and climbing everywhere. It’s so fun watching you explore your environment.
Miss Morgan, you definitely have a spunky personality. I mean, just look at your faces in these photos. You LOVE dancing to music! It’s really cute watching you get your groove on. You love to SNUGGLE! You love sitting on baba’s tummy when he’s laying down, and then every so often you will lean your whole body down to snuggle with him. Your snuggles are the greatest! Last week you amazed me when you started drinking water from a straw cup!!!
As your first birthday approaches, I’m counting all the ways you two have blessed my life. I am so thankful that you two were born healthy, we had a great run at breastfeeding (Morgan!), you guys are healthy and happy and thriving, and you gave Avery the very important job of being a big sister. She loves you guys so very much. What can I say. You guys are all so lucky to have each other. We are lucky to have grandma so nearby (top photo!). But I feel like I am the luckiest person here, because I get to be your mama. Here’s to more adventures together in your 2nd year of life.
I’m joined in this “Letters to Our Children” blog circle by a group of fantastic photographer mothers. Each month we write a letter to one of our children, accompanied by our photography, then link up our blogs. An attempt to capture the fleeting and celebrate motherhood. Stop by Kelly’s blog to read her letter and enjoy her photos, then keep following the circle around until you end up back here.
