Just when I thought you couldn’t get any cuter…

I came out to my car at lunch and saw that you had drawn all over my back bumper with bright pink sidewalk chalk! Thanks for knowing I’d need a pick-me-up today. And thanks for using something that washes off easily.

I guess it’s true what they say about white boys.

Jack,

I’ve been away from this space for a while. It is summer and we’ve been having so much fun playing outside. That seems more important than taking the time to write you. While I hope these little notes will hold a special place in your heart, I believe the memories we are making will be even more special.

It seems impossible that you are suddenly a little boy with an endless curiosity and emotions - so many emotions! Where did my tiny baby go? 

But this is the most fun stage we’ve experienced. You love to give hugs and there is nothing that lights up the world more than you running towards me with arms wide open. You talk, though you prefer to ponder. Sometimes I think I can actually see your wheels turning.

Your current favorite things:

  • Bubbles! (BUBBLES, MOM-MY!)
  • Golf
  • Balls
  • Pushing your lawn mower
  • Cuddling with Ace
  • Books and puzzles - soooo many books and puzzles!
  • Bath time
  • Blowing your nose (I’m not sure who taught you this but nothing makes you more proud than blowing snot into a Kleenex and somehow wiping it all over your face.) 

I’ve been away for a week doing work things, and I thought of you every second I was gone. By day 4 my heart hurt. By day 6 I was ready to run across the country for you. 

I hope you will always know how much love in my heart belongs exclusively to you.

xoxo

Mama
