Dear Child O' Mine

Notes & Letters to My Child… Which Will One Day Embarass Him

He’s got Personality!


You have such a wonderful and expuberant personality. So loving, kind and loud. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure you don’t lose it as you learn to control it.

I want the absolute best for you but these next few months will be hard and I am sorry for that. But its time to learn control and how to listen better. No more throwing fits for everything. It will be harder for you because u are so much bigger.

Love u with all my heart! Mommy

Lil’ Pooper

So here we are starting your second year and it already feels like another year has passed in a month. You have been more active lately then normal and very much a smart alec. I thought the talking back wasn’t suppose to start until you became a teenager but alas it has already started. You are definitely learning your “yes” and “no” but not overly so just yet. You just respond when asked a question like “did you poop?” and I pretty sure this is the only question you really know.

BTW, you like Star Trek.

Almost Here!!!

It has been awhile since I wrote anything… been a tough few weeks. You had your first bout of stomach flu and it hit all of us at home. Sadly you handled it much better then your father and I. And you were both better then me.

But in another week we will be celebrating your 1st birthday and it makes me cry whenever I think about it. This has been the most stressful and yet amazing year of my life and that includes when I fell in love with your father and then we conceived you. So many people in your family are coming out for your birthday and while we won’t be having the party until the weekend – its going to be a blast. You will finally get to meet your cousins again.

I love you so much my baby boy!!


BTW, any idea where you put my student id?

And you like…

PEANUT BUTTER!!!  We have eaten some plain, natural peanut butter the last three days for lunch and you really like it. Two times it was spread on some bread and cut into really tiny bits. And once I mixed a scoop of it in with vanilla yogurt with berry juice and you really loved that. But we are on several days of letting you feed yourself and you are doing great. As soon as you see me go to the high chair you come running. I even enjoy that I can give you food and then clean the kitchen in the mornings and get the day started and eat myself without chasing you round the house.

You are getting so big!!! And in a month you will be turning one. Now we are planning your birthday party and we have so many people coming in for it. I hope you have a great time! I love you so much!!!

Not so fussy…

So tonight you ate your first full meal alone. I made small sandwiches w apricotsauce in between the thumb print size pieces of bread. Then I gave you a spoon w yogurt of it. You never gave me back the spoon so I poured the yogurt on your tray. You ate it all except two spoon fulls.

Looks like you did want to feed yourself but wanted somwthing more then cheerios.

Yeah for food! And yogurt in the hair! Now if I could just get you into your pj’s.

Fussy Eater….

you are not wanting to eat much lately. i looked up reasons online on why and they say it’s because you want to feed yourself but you aren’t eating that way either. i personally think its your new tooth but we shall try some other foods and see. maybe the Cheerios are too hard?

but you did eat part of my keyboard….

You are getting your 6th tooth today… it came with a high fever last night of 101. At least we think that is what caused it and I hope. We also had our first near disaster with the house when the empty house next to ours caught fire. You did very well and were fascinated by the lights on all the trucks and all the people that came around. Our other neighbor invited us in and your got to play with their little girls and had a wonderful time. I am getting ready to back up your photos on CD-ROMs because if our neighborhood hadn’t been on the ball then we could have lost our home as well. Instead we have a house that smells a bit like smoke and part of our fence has been pulled down by the firemen. But like I said you were wonderful especially since you have a bit of a cold right now and had not been feeling well all day.

Love you my little brave boy!

Lil Talk Backer?

I believe we had our first argument today. You aren’t talking yet but you are learning to express yourself so well. I told you no but you made it clear you did not agree with me.

I am so proud!

Dear Child

Thank you for screaming at the top of your lungs when I took the soda bottle away. For throwing bottle so hard on the floor at Target it exploded… and thank for making me laugh the entire time.

Love you!

Yes you do…

Just putting this here for when you try to deny it one day…. if you do.

You snort when you laugh and have since the first time you went into a giggle fit. And you are welcome cause you get that from me. The super ticklish trait is from your daddy.
