I remember not telling anyone about you for a few weeks. It was fun, and so hard, keeping this secret. I think I was scared you might be a figment of my imagination. Surely those many tests I took were wrong. I did nothing to deserve you, in all your crazy blond wildness. You were all gift.
You have changed my life, in so many ways. I no longer can begin to think only of myself. And if I do, you make sure it's short lived. ;) Everything I do effects you, and God knew I so desperately needed that. I needed someone to shake up my world and let me know it wasn't all about me.
Sometimes my heart hurts when I look at you. You are the cutest boy I've ever seen...sometimes I'm surprised by how much I love you. I know God has used you to let me understand, a little bit better, how He loves us. You are so energetic and free-spirited, independent and stubborn. Your mother's child with traits like those, but at the same time a little version of your daddy.
