Since I was busy at work yesterday (imagine that!) I didn’t have time to post that L.A. is already 5 months! It’s incredible to me how quickly he’s grown. I reached into his drawer the other day to grab some socks and pulled out a pair of stragglers that must not have made it into the bin of clothes that no longer fit. As the munchkin lay there squirming and cooing away at the painting on his wall, I unrolled these teeny little socks and held them up to marvel at how small he used to be. It sounds so cliche to say “it all goes so fast” but it really
does. He’s a little person now with his own personality and voice. I can’t even fathom the changes I’ll be posting about 5 months from now.
In 5 short months L.A. has weaseled his way deep deep into our hearts, and as I was rocking him to sleep last night it occurred to me that I can’t even remember what life was like when he wasn’t here. It’s almost as though my life really took on meaning when he arrived.
So my sweet boy, when you read this many years from now, know that no matter happens or where life takes us, you have always been so loved. I’m so grateful to have you in my life, you’ve taught me patience I didn’t know I was lacking, and shown me that to appreciate the most important things in life you often have to slow down and be silent.
