My dearest Sweet Sweet –
This past Sunday you turned 16 months! Where has the time gone?! So much has happened this month – the biggest news being you are now an older brother! And you are a really good one – already. You know to be gentle and sweet to little Sailor, and I am sure you guys are going to the best of friends! Like Drew Brees says, the greatest gift you can give to your son is a younger brother 🙂
I feel like you are just growing leaps and bounds – not just physically, as you are quite large compared to little Sailor, but intellectually as well. You seem to understand everything I say, and everything Popo says, so I guess you are officially bilingual! Physically, you seem like somewhat of a real giant to me, since I am dealing with Sailor a lot of the time. So sturdy, with such nice stems! and some big calves, sorry – those are from me. Hopefully, at least, you won’t have any knee issues, since you will have muscular legs.
And your feet – they are just too adorable for words! Plump and just cute cute cute! Dad says you have his foot, but my toes. I think it is the perfect combo! Little Sailors feet are skinny, like yours once were. His toes really look a lot like Dad’s toes.
You are also able to get on and off your rockin’ rhino all by yourself – that is a huge feat in itself! Every time you get on him, you look around, expecting applause and cheering, which we all supply in great quantities. You don’t like to stay on for too too long, maybe you just want to get on for all the accolades.
You are still loving being outside and at the park. Here is the last time I was at the park with you – you sure do love taking rides in Mustang’s wagon! I miss not being able to go to the park with you – but soon enough I will be well enough to get back on our usual routine, with a little Sailor in tow. Popo and Dad have been taking you to the park – and by all reports, you are still your sweet little self.
I miss not being able to scoop you up – and you have now even nearly stopped asking me to pick you up, which makes me sad. Again, I am on the mend and will be back to my normal self soon! and then there will be lots of scooping up. I still try to squeeze you tight, whenever you will let me, and also kiss you a thousand times. I guess I am finding out that having a 2nd baby is tough – as I am used to being able to pour all my attention on you. Now I have to split my attention. I hope you don’t mind too much. In the end, I think you’ll love having Sailor around.
Anyway, I love you, my original Sweet Sweet. I love you so so much. More than I can ever express.
