Dear Jack

In light of a week filled with ear infections, allergic reactions to medication, therapy issues and more offensive comments by celebrities, I have found myself a little worn out, a little overwhelmed and a little frustrated.  And instead of writing about all of that, I find myself wanting to talk to our son and tell him how I feel about him.  So Jack, this is for you:

MY sweet Jack,
You will be 14 months old this Sunday.  This means that for 14 months your daddy and I have been blessed with your presence, your smile, your tears, your laughter, your giggles, your snorts, your waves, your cuddles and your love.  We could not have wished for a more perfect son.  You are so good at grounding us and reminding us to slow down and enjoy life.  You are so good at making us smile and making us savor each moment.  You have made us both better people, better spouses and better parents.  We love you so much.  I hang on your every babble, your every laugh and I come running when there is a tear.  You have me totally wrapped around your tiny, pudgy fingers and that’s just where I want to be.  I can’t wait to see what this next year holds.  I hope we get to hear you say Mama and Dada, I hope we get to see you crawl and climb and get into all sorts of things, but most of all – I know we will experience more love, more laughter and more joy than even we did this past year.  I just want you to know that I love you my sweet sweet son.  You truly are magical and we are forever imprinted with love because of you.  I hope and pray that everyone who meets you undergoes the same changes we have and loves better because of your sweet, innocent spirit. 
Momma and Daddy

Here is one of your recent photos, that I love:

Happy 14 months sweet Jack!
