I remember the day you were born, they held you up over the curtain and you screamed with all your little might. When my eyes met your face, my heart stopped. You were the most perfect, precious little angel. And you were mine! (I also thought it was a joke, because you were the size of a 2 month old. The "King of the Nursery" the nurses dubbed you.)
We have a special connection, you and me. We're buddies. Joined at the hip. Inseparable and in love! You are a momma's boy through and through and you're proud of it. And so am I! You are always doing the sweetest things for me and then you kiss my forehead. The other day you said, "I like to take care of you, don't I Mommy?" AH! I know you'll always take care of me, baby boy. It's just who you are.
You're the perfect companion to your brother. You make him laugh every day and you stick up for him always. You're a team, you and him. Stay a team. Protect your team. Your love for one another inspires me. Your brotherhood is unique, strong as an ox, and fiercely loyal. It's my favorite thing in the world to watch.
You think your daddy hung the moon and when he comes home from work every day it's as if he's just coming home from a week away. You are so excited to see him and your favorite thing to do with him is ride bikes and go on errands. You love your daddy dearly!
You're our little comedian, shy around others but the life of the party at home. You walk around with your hands in your pocket and stand with your hands behind your back, like a little old man. It is the cutest thing in the world...along with your giggle and smiles. I feel like you should do voices in cartoons because your voice is the sweetest little thing. Your daddy and I melt over just how cute you are!
Ezra, I've only scratched the surface here. You are such an exciting little thing. I never know what you'll do or say or how you'll act or feel. You keep us on our toes and bring such life and love to our family. You make me better.
I love you, angel boy. I cherish you always.
