My baby boy,
You are already 2 months and I just wish time would do me a favor and slow down. It’s hard to believe that 60+ days ago you were still inside of me and it was just you and me. Now you are big and growing like a little weed and I can’t do anything about that. I love that you are exploring your surroundings, that you’re finding your hands and feet and that your smile is enough to make me forget any trouble or hard thing.
Your personality is already starting to show a little bit. You are a happy baby, you love to sit up and stand with our help and you even love to lay on your tummy. You are so strong and that scares me a little bit! What are we going to do when you’re ready to crawl and walk? You love to hold our fingers in your little hands and when I feed you your little legs kick kick kick. You also have the bottom lip number down pretty well and it’s as sad as it sounds. I don’t like it one bit!
You are eating a lot quicker and more efficient now. You are even sleeping through the night (thanks for that) and you are so happy in the morning. You give us your biggest smiles and we love it. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything in the world and it never gets old. I LOVE to kiss you. I probably smack a big one on you at least a hundred times a day. I love to give you a good ole fashion kiss on the lips and then see your smile when I pull away. Those are only for me though, ok?
I cannot wait to see how you continue to develop. Being a Mom has been the best and most challenging thing I’ve ever done. In the beginning I wasn’t sure about what I was doing, but I think we have things down pat now. You make it pretty easy! The love for you that I have is overwhelming at times. You are the light in our life. You are loved, wanted and you are a treasure. You are a joy and a gift from the Lord and I’m so grateful and pleased that he chose to put you in our family.
I love you, Asher.
