Sunday Morning Missive

08 Jun

Dear Hunter,

How can you be 19 mos old already? You are growing so much and so fast. Right now your favorite word to say is, “Mama!” And you usually yell it. And when you do, your dad and I just look at each other and smile or laugh out loud. Of course, when it’s time to ride the 4-wheeler, you scream, “DADDY!!”

You bring us so much joy with your zest and curiosity.  And you also bring us a bit of exhaustion. I am writing this little blog post on a Sunday morning at 4:22. You still sleep with us and sometimes, after you’ve woken, nursed and gone back to sleep, I am unable to slumber again. So here I am… telling you more about what life is like now that you are in it.

You love being outside.  You love picking the flowers from the planters and digging at the vegetable plants in the garden. I think your dad got the sandbox put together just in time… you’ve had it for less than a day and LOVE it. Last evening after dinner, you sat and played in it until bedtime.

Son, you are smart and sweet, funny and loving.  You play with tractors and your favorite Sesame Street character is Cookie Monster….followed by Elmo. As this new day and week begins… I can’t wait to see more of the world through your eyes and watch what you do next….
