23 Months

Dear Emery Jack,

Once again this is a little late, but I’ve been saving some sweet stories for you from month 23. I cannot believe that in a few short weeks you will be 2 years old. When I was pregnant I thought that 9 months dragged on, when you were born I thought I’d never make it through the first year, and here we are at year two and I now feel like they’re flying by.
You amaze me in so many ways each day you’re doing something new. This past month you put together short little sentences that melt my heart. Leaving daycare you tell me, “I love you, Mama.” I remember waiting so patiently to hear the word Mama and now getting to hear it all the time…words cannot describe.
I am so proud of the little boy you’ve become. There are a lot of things that I feel I’m doing just OK at, but I feel like we’re doing something right with our sweet little almost two year old. When someone sneezes you say, “Bless you.” When you are given something you always say, “Thank you.” When you’re in trouble for something and we ask you to go to your room and sit until you’ve got it under control you walk into your room, sometimes stomp, and sit down until you’re feeling better and then come out and grace us with your presence.
I’ve always said that when I have children that I want people to want them to come around and not dread seeing them because they cannot control themselves. You have made that a reality. I don’t think anyone would cringe at the thought of you coming to see them. You really are a great kid.
Yesterday we had a bbq for daddy’s birthday and to celebrate Easter. There were so many people here and you had such a great time hunting eggs with your cousins Maggie and Macee. Here are a few pictures of this weekend and of last month as well. Happy Easter, Love.
