|This time last year...|
I didn't know that you'd love watching your sister play...
|...I didn't know you'd stomp around like an elephant, and your nickname would be "Godzilla!" :). |
|...I didn't know you would sit so contently, and absorb the chaos around you.|
|I wished, prayed and hoped, but I didn't know you'd be your dadda's best pal. You are. |
|...I didn't know you'd have dadda's eyes, chin, hair, etc. etc. etc. (little clone:).|
This time last year, I didn't realize how fast life flies by.
|I didn't know that I'd blink and |
you'd be standing.
|or sitting... |
|this time last year, I didn't know how chubby your feet would be. |
|this time last year you were squished..|
|this time last year, I didn't know you had wrinkly, wobbly knees. |
|this time last year I didn't know....|
that another man could so efficiently and swiftly steal my heart.
Now I know.
Now I know you have wrinkly knees, chubby feet, daddy's features. I know you like to knock down block towers and throw balls. I know that you love your sister more than anything. Now I know what it feels like to love even deeper than I thought possible.
I love you Henry! 3 weeks and we'll be celebrating your one year of life on this earth. Mind blowing.
