You have no idea how much we adore you. All four of us.
Your smile is like winning first prize or being invited somewhere VIP.
Every morning (after you’ve slept 8-10 hours straight), I lean over next to you on our white sheets. Your blue eyes find mine, but you don’t cry.
Laid-back, but curious. You want to see the world, preferring to be walked about than to sit still.
And just like all of us, you find peace in the outdoors – with the wind surprising you and the trees waving hello, sunlight glistening through the branches.
You coo now and say “ooooh.” And I say it right back to you. My heart beats right out of its chest, for the sheer fullness of having YOU.
When I write in my journal of thankful things, you are always there. In a hundred different ways.
