Mom Life Mondays: Blog Link Up #12 (4th Birthday!)


Four years ago today, I became a mama. This little darling changed my world forever.



To my sweet A,

Four years ago today, your dad and I became better people. We are infinitely more loving, patient, curious, selfless, honest, caring, thoughtful, adventurous, happy, and silly because of you.

This past year has been one for the books. We’ve seen you grow into being an independent little boy and an amazing big brother. You love fiercely and with your whole heart. We’re so lucky to have you and your big little personality to teach us how to be better people every day.

I was going to write an endless amount of sentimental things, but figured I’ve already teared up enough today. So instead, I share with you a few things about your current favorites. These days you’re passionate about many things, especially your super hero squad. I totally get it, they’re goals. Your self-made art collection, your Magnatiles city scapes, and retro Dinosaurs are close behind.  But, almost daily, you’re most proud of your little brother. And for that I am so grateful.
