A letter to my boys...
Since everything is on the Internet for a lifetime I thought I would write you a letter that one day you could Google yourself and find. Hope you enjoy my thoughts.
If I could stop time right now I would. You are both so innocent and it is beautiful to watch you grow up. Every time I hold you I realize that I was put on this Earth to be your mom and love you with all my heart. Both your dad and I are really enjoying teaching you how to be good little citizens of the world with kind hearts and loving spirits. It's not a hard task.
Walker...You are just bouncing off the walls with curiosity and excitement. You are a vocal little fellow at 21 months and pretty much repeat anything we say. You even call your dad "Chad" because you hear me say it so much. It's pretty adorable. You are very snuggly right now and have major affinity for your mom. I am eating it up each day and loving our songs, stories and adventures. You amaze me Walker Bear. You are so smart. I'm almost afraid of how smart you are going to be one day...hence we are putting away money for your Vanderbilt education. Ha! I love you Snooze. You are quite the little stylish toddler now that mom has dove head first into Nordstroms.com on a weekly basis. Right now you are sporting little Joe's Jeans and Sperry Top Siders...with a Phish 2012 tour shirt of course. We have to keep it real somehow! You are starting swim lessons next month and I am sure you are going to rock those out. Right now you are trying to swim in the bath tub each night. Also, I would like to thank you for being such a good eater. Your love of fruits and veggies is pretty wild. You also jam on some crackers and waffle fries when you can. Also, thank you for finding your groove with taking naps. I really appreciate the break and definitely need to clean up after your toddler tornado sessions of trucks, cars and choo choos. You are going to be 2 in July...what happened?!? I love you WB...you are my world.
Fletch...Could you be any sweeter? Nope. You are smiley little dude at 9 weeks old and I am also eating this up. Your brother was not much of a smiler, but you are coming in strong with your cheerful demeanor. Your favorite activities include getting your head rubbed, hearing our voices when we talk to you and playing in the "Ocean" with some tummy time. You already rolled over...what's up with that?! Maa thinks you are going to be another genius and we should start putting away extra money for the Yale education. Guess I should stay out of Nordstroms huh? Dang. I have one request buddy...quit spitting up. You are changed about 4 times a day and I am running our washing machine 24/7. It's cool though. You reward me in smiles. I have to thank you for following in your brother's footsteps of sleeping well at night. You slept from 7pm until 6am this morning with a bottle at 11pm. Whoa. I love it. I have big dreams for you buddy and can't wait to watch you grow. You are good sport with everything being crazy like it is. Thanks. You are such a great addition to our little family. I couldn't imagine life with your in it. You fit right in like I knew you would. I love you little bear...keep smiling.
