Four Months?

Dearest Will,

Happy Four Month Birthday, Little Boy! It seems impossible to believe that you are getting so big already. It makes Mommy sad and happy all at the same time. I am sad because your time as a baby is going by so quickly, but I am happy because you are growing so big and strong, which is exactly what you are supposed to do.

Being your mommy is the best thing in the world, Monkey. I have dreamed of being a mommy since I was a little girl. Sometimes, the things that we dream about aren't as good in real life as they are in our fantasies, but this is not the case. There are so many things that I love about being your mommy and I can only name a few of the millions, but here are some of the things that I love most.

I love that each morning, when I come into your room, you greet me with the biggest smile.

I love that you enjoy reading books together. It cracks me up when you are fussing and I get a book out and you stop crying immediately and sit with rapt attention while I read.

I love our moments in the middle of the night, which are already getting fewer and farther between.

I love when I rock you right before a nap and your little body starts to melt into mine.

I love when you give me special Will-kisses and how you laugh when I give you kisses back.

I love how you have just discovered your little feet and are so fascinated with your toes.

I love how each day, you learn something new. Seeing the world through your eyes makes it more beautiful.

As I said before, there is no way for me to even begin to write about all of the things that I love about being your mommy. But there is one thing that I love above all else: I love you. I love the little person that you are becoming and I can't wait to see how you continue to grow.

Love always and forever,

Wow, guess anyone reading what my perfect, beautiful daughter in law just wrote to her son on his 4 month birthday can see why I so love and adore her so much.

Any woman who has been fortunate enough to become a grandma knows about the twinge I feel in my heart each time I hold him, see a new picture, or hear my little pumpkin make noises and laugh. He is so AWESOME !!!

I am so lucky to be your grandma, Will. I love you very much. Happy 4 month birthday sweetie pie. xoxoxo
