Thank You Mom!

I’ve only been able to look you in the eyes for 10 days, but we’ve bonded for the past 10 months. Word has it that you have dreamt about having me as long as you can remember, and I could have only wished to come in to the kind Love you shower upon me.

You have taken every precaution to help me grow into the healthy little man I am today – even though it resulted in great sacrifices including missing your Stevie Nicks concert, less ‘Journey performances’ on the dance floor and a shift in your social life to accommodate more ‘growing time’ for me.

I look around my room and see your love expressed in so many ways. You have devoted so much energy into creating the perfect nest for me. How did you know that I would share the same nautical taste as my Daddy? And watch out ladies - my wardrobe is out of this world!

Your tender love for me in the past week and a half has made me realize that I am truly the luckiest little man. You have shown amazing patience as I figure out life beyond the womb. You have been there to comfort me with a warm kiss, embrace, and smile when my patience wears thin. Thank you!

I know we were meant to be together. I look forward to growing with you, bonding with you and for you to show me how to get along in this world…

I LOVE YOU MOM!
