This past weekend, we sold your crib. And as the excited Mom-to-be drove away, I couldn't help but feel a little sad. Our baby days are over. No more for us. One and done.
You're growing up. Way too fast.
Please slow it down, a little bit. Just for me?
Two years ago this month, we had your 6 month photo shoot, and it feels like yesterday.
I decided to take some advice from Barney Stinson though.
"When I feel sad, I stop being sad, and start being awesome."
So here goes...
I love that you have your own little personality and we can now have real conversations with each other.
I love your imagination. Sure, that's a robot sleeping in a tree. I see it too.
I love that when asked what you want to do today, you will 99% of the time say "Go Shopping." Shopping buddies for life baby!
I love that you can make me laugh when I am most frustrated, sad, disappointed... You're so silly and sweet.
I love your popsicle dance.
I love that you say the color white as "wipe."
I love that you still need "Mama" when you wake up in the middle of the night.
I love that you are so cuddly. Please don't grow out of that any time soon.
Most of all, Ella Bella Boo Boo Bear, I hope you know how much Mama loves you. And how proud I am to be your Mama!
