Because I can

Dear Finley,

Today I feel like bragging on you. And I will, because I'm your mama, and that's something mamas do best. You are getting so big and fierce and strong. We have so much fun together you and I, and you have grow to have a sense of humor that stops me sometimes and makes me realize how very old you are for your years. You're becoming such a helper around the house, and when I ask you to pick up your toys you do it. Today you even picked up a spray bottle and put it away without me asking you to. I was shocked. In so many ways your no longer my little toddler. But then, you cry for me in the middle of the night and I remember that I have a little time left before your too old for me and my cuddles. We've taken to napping together in the afternoons since I've been growing your baby brother and it's become one of my favorite things. I love cuddling up next to you and listening to your heavy breathing as you go to sleep. I don't know what I did to deserve getting to be your mama, but I'm so glad I am. I am so proud of you and I love you ever so much my little man.

Hugs and love.

My shadow

Dear Finley, 
I love you to the moon and back. 
You make my heart overflow with happiness. 
I can't wait to see what an amazing big brother you're going to be, 
but I'm so happy for our time left to adventure just you and me. 
Your dimples kill me and your snuggles make everything better. 
You're the bestest.
Hugs and kisses.

I'll love you forever

you and me. 
me and you. 
you are my happy place. 
cuddled up, snuggled on my chest. 
running wild, playing chase in the park. 
in good and bad, 
no matter what happens or what is to come, 
I am so incredibly thankful I get to be your mama. 
I'll love you forever Finley Asiimwe Lane.
