I will never forget I've been blessed with the gift of loving you.

Dear  Finley, 
I can't help crying happy tears looking at the photos Richelle took of us today. I don't know how I got so lucky. I don't know why out of all the mommies in the world I was given the gift of loving you, and having you, Finley Asiimwe be my son, but my goodness does my heart overflow. Sometimes it just stops and I almost forget to breath. Happiness is crushing sometimes. 

I love you so much my sweet boy and I just want you to know that. 
Every day, for the rest of your life. 
No matter where you live or who you become. 
Forever and always, I will love you. 
You're my bakeekeee and as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be. 

I love you to the moon and back.

Peter pan shoes

Dear baby boy,

You're currently a bit more then obsessed with Peter Pan. Every second you get you beg to watch it. Luckily mama has some restraint and doesn't let you watch it more then once in a day. But. My heart. You're just so perfectly still, your little finger in your mouth, your eyes fixated on the screen when it's on. It's like you're memorizing every word and trying to figure out exactly how it is they fly and I feel like my heart my break from the cuteness of you.

 So when we were in the city the other day daddy and I decided for halloween this year we're going to dress you as Peter Pan. We gave you the option of Hook or Peter,  since you do talk in a Hook voice to me when you want to get your point across.  But thankfully, you chose Peter. I mean after all, he's tights are awesomeeeeeee. 

Since there was no good quality costumes to be found and I knew you'd want to wear it a hundred plus times I asked Nana Grandma if she would be willing to make you a costume. Of course she said yes. You're Nana Grandma is the best, Finley. She's even making you a little sword and belt but I'm not telling you until you see it for yourself. I'm pretty sure you might cry you'll be so happy.

Instead of having Nana make you shoes though I decided to get you moccasins because they're cute and functional and, I was pretty sure you would love wearing them. What can I say, I may be a bit of a genius too. ;) We got the box three nights ago in the mail and when you opened the package you danced around the house wearing them for at least an hour. PETER PANNNNNNNN SHOEEEES. PETER PAN. DANCE DANCE DANCE. DADDY DANCEEEEEEE. You squealed . And you threw yourself around dancing. It was adorable. I don't think I have ever seen you that excited about anything. Which means only one thing, you'll be getting peter pan shoes for the rest of your life. ;)

I love you my sweet bakkkkeeekeee and I hope I can always help your dreams come true.

A million and one hugs.
