From the very beginning you were my easy baby. You slept most of the time and rarely fussed, a far cry from your colicky sister. Yet, you also quickly developed a personality that let us know that you were her brother and my child. You know what you want and heaven forbid you don't get it!
I was also a completely different mother with you than I was with Michaela. More experience and being around other mommies taught me not to sweat the little things. I gladly handed you off to friends when they offered to hold you, knowing that you would be a stronger child if I didn't insist on being with you every second. As you have slowly started crawling and cruising, I haven't hovered over you. I trust in your strength and know that you will recover quickly from any bump or scrape that happens.
You make everyone around you want to love you. Daddy, sister and I all absolutely adore you. I can't wait to see you continue to grow into a little boy and am looking forward to the changes this next year brings!
*Ok, well it's a couple of days late, but that's what happens when a second child's birthday falls so near a holiday. :)
