Dear Will

Dear Will,

You are now 13 months old and I have no idea where the time went! I can't imagine life without you and what I did with my time or money. Whenever I buy anything I usually have you in mind. It's amazing how life changes when one tiny little boy enters a family.
You made your dad and I a family! I wish daddy could be around more and watch you grow up but he's doing what is best for us at the moment. Hopefully someday soon he'll find a job at home. I don't see a lot of Stanley in your physical looks but I see a lot of him in you in your actions and smiles. You are onery just like him! I hope you're just as handy around the house too. I'm sure he can teach you. He loves you so much and I am thankful for picture mail on cell phones so I can send him pictures of you.
We just got off the phone with daddy, actually. When I put the phone up to your ear you tried to show him your ball and said ball probably eight times in a row. You love balls! You have an arm on you too! Maybe you'll make mommy proud and become a baseball player. But if you want to play basketball or soccer that's okay too. I want to take on the philosophy that my mom took with her kids and that we had to be active in something but we could chose it. I wouldn't mind if you wanted to be a gymnast but I know daddy wouldn't be to happy with that.
I also talked to Colleen tonight, Emily's mom. We are already planning for Halloween and we're going to go trick or treating in St. Charles with the White Family. She is going to let you wear Aaron's old Tigger costume! I bet you will look so cute! I wonder if you and Emily & Anna will be friends in the future or even in a relationship. It's crazy to think of you having a girlfriend but I'm sure you will have tons. I just hope I can help to raise you to be respectful of ladies and be a nice boy. (Unlike how your daddy was in high school. LOL)
Well you are actually getting clingy now so I am going to end this letter and put you to bed. So you know I still enjoy watching you sleep. You are absolutely perfect and I thank God everyday for you! I can't wait to make you a big brother!

Love always,

Mama

PS - Thank you to Kendra for the great idea to write letters to Will in my blog. I hope I can write several letters to him a few times a year!

No Problem...I enjoyed it. I found the idea on a website. I am hoping to create a little book for each of my children as they grow. To give to them when they live the house to live on their own. I have plans to start right after I find out that I am with child. Which will be in a while...
