It’s time for Letters to Our Children again! The second March installmentHead over to Courtney at Click It Up a Notch to read her letter next!
Oh my goodness! My sweet baby.Brayden, you are something else! Your “permasmile” makes me so happy! Your outlook on life is one that I hope you hold on to forever. You smile your way through life. Your vocabulary is multiplying by the day and I love hearing what you have to say. It is usually something about trains, or Nascars, or Toyotas or Chevys, or the sweetest words I’ve ever heard. You have a lot going on in your mind, and I hope you share it all with me.
Recently, I was having a bad day. You were really concerned and gave me hugs and kisses, then you told me that I was your sunshine. That isn’t something that I’ve said to you, so I know I didn’t put those words in your mouth. My first thoughts were that God had spoken to me through your pure heart. You told me just what I needed to hear at just the right moment. What a caring, kind, sweet boy you are. I’m so in love with you, baby boy. I call you my “sweet baby” and you have started calling me your sweet baby. I will be your sweet baby for as long as you’ll let me.
You have always been the more dare devilish child of ours up until recently. I can’t for the life of me get you to ride a bike. I think you have seen the other two kids fall off of theirs enough times to know that it can’t be all that safe. You say that you are afraid that you’ll fall off. So, I was over the moon the other day when you decided to hop on Delia’s old Razor and go for a ride. You scootered around the driveway for the afternoon. You looked like such a big boy! I get so excited when you and your brother and sister learn new things. I hope you all know that I will always be your biggest fan and supporter. I want many things for you, but most of all, I want for you to be happy and to love yourself and be proud of yourself, no matter what you are doing.
You go to school two days a week, so on the other three weekdays, we get to spend some one on one time together. I really love this time. I hope that you do too. I want you to know how special you are. You bring such light to this world. If this world were filled with Bray’s it would be a wonderful, beautiful place. I am blessed to have such a sweet soul in my life. You are so funny! Your laugh is contagious and you are such a crazy little dude! Recently, Delia was in a mood at the dinner table and she told you, “It isn’t funny Brayden!” and you said, “Yes it is! HAHAHAHA!” I don’t remember what wasn’t funny to Delia, but you.are.funny. You make me laugh everyday with something crazy that you’ve done. Another dinner table story is when you popped out of your chair and were shaking your “boobie”. You backed up onto Ben and said in a deep voice, “I’m gonna shake my boobie on YOU!” Then you shook it. I smile or laugh every time I think about it. You call Pirate Booty Pirate Boobies and birthday birtday and have it all planned out what your present will be. Trains, of course.
One of my absolute favorite things is snuggling with you on the couch while you watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Mater Tales. Those are your favorites of the moment. We do high/low at the dinner table and often you’ll say that your high was snuggling with me on the couch. You are so cuddly and I hope you know that I love those times with you. I know that one day you won’t want to be so close to me all of the time, so I’m going to cherish each moment for as long as I can.
I love you Bray Bray. I can’t think of a better addition to our family than you. You completed us and add so much joy to our lives. Can’t wait to pick you up soon and play a round of Mario Cart with you!
Love, Mommy (your sweet baby)
