Dear Little Baby Honey Bun,
Your name means “God has given” and God has indeed given me so much joy and happiness every day with you. You’ve brought so much laughter to my life and I cannot help but to love you more and more with each passing day.
I remember months before you were conceived, I was looking at your older siblings and thinking to myself, “I can live with having two kids” because they were learning to be independent. Moving around and going out was becoming so much more convenient. But then I knew your father always felt that we must have you to complete our family. And so you came.
You’re distinctively different and unique as an indivdual. You’ve got your own ways of teasing us, giggling, babbling and being coy. And you’re ALWAYS so happy.
You’re the first baby we’ve had that’s able to interact with everyone. You chase after Ben on all fours; you yank Becks’ hair and laugh whenever she goes “yeow!”; you press your forehead against mine and rub your cheeks on my face and chest to tell me you want me; and you yak with your father and signal for him to move around in signs only the two of you speak. Last week, you started to walk! I’ve not seen a wider grin on your face than when you toddled towards everyone at home, and you must be feeling on top of the world seeing how everyone at home was cheering crazily for you. It was as awesome a feeling it was for us as it was for you, baby love! You made us so proud to receive you with open arms as you took turns walking towards each one of us.
Thank you for completing the family, and for making me feel I’m the most blessed person in the world to have you in my life.
With all my affection, and more, and then some more,
