Letters to my Son

Lion face

Dearest LittleMan,

Today is a very hard day for your Mamamamama and I am not coping all that well right now. Today I return to work, and a couple days each week I must leave you with LoudGranny or Grandy (when Dadadadada is not home). Now, I feel very good about having you spend more time with the grandparents and I think it will be good for you to spend time with people other then Mamamamama. But, I would be lying if I didn't admit that the thought of not seeing your little sleeping face in the crib at 10pm tonight is totally going to break my heart. I am sure returning to work will be harder on me then you and we will find our rythym soon enough.

This week I was working on the photo wall in our front entrance, and although I wanted an assortment of photos, I found myself ordering prints of you to fill the spaces (who am I kidding? over half the frames are photos of you). You will make that photo wall shine.

Lately you have this new thing that you are doing. You like to get under a chair or table and then tilt your head sideways to look up at whatever is on the bottom side of the chair or table. The look on your face is priceless when you do this, you look like you are really examining what is going on there. Yesterday morning you got over your fear of grass and crawled around our back yard, you also discovered the rocks and like to dig in them. This last week you have slept well too, only getting up once and then sleeping to 7:30 or later in the morning. Some days I have actually got up before you, made coffee, fed BuddyLove, showered and put up the babygates before you even started partying in the crib.

You continue to amaze me each day.

Love you more than chocolate,

P.S. I smell poo. Its not me and the dog is outside, so guess who gets his diaper changed?
