A Letter to my Son

Dear Bug,
A year ago today, my wish came true. I become a mother.
After several years of tears and frustration, you came into my life.
I am forever grateful.

I cannot begin to tell you how much joy you have given to me and your father. You are such a wonder. Every day with you brings new things, new emotions. I am constantly in awe in how much my heart can grow. Every day it grows bigger and bigger. Some days I think it just might come out of my body. I hear you giggle, that infectious, glorious sound…and I fear that my heart just may burst with happiness.

You, my son, are my everything. Every milestone you accomplish engraves a memory on my soul.

I just want to breathe you in…every second I spend with you. I want to hold it all inside and never forget. I want to keep every moment in a locked-up box in my heart and keep it close.

My baby is growing up, growing older, becoming a boy. And I get the privilege to watch you. I get the privilege of being your mother.

Be brave my son. The world is weak. If I could keep you from pain, shield you from the monsters that will hide under your bed, I would. But the world is also strong. You will see wonderment; you will experience beauty; you will be loved.

You ARE loved. My beautiful boy. My sweet, sweet WonderBug.
Happy Birthday!

    "I just want to breathe you in…every second I spend with you. I want to hold it all inside and never forget." I couldn't have said it better myself! This is SO how I feel about Lea, too. :) Happy Birthday, little man.

    We just may have the same exact birth story – except I don't remember my husband being so funny. He looks as taken with you as you do with him in this picture. Happy Birthday baby!
