Monday's Letters to my Little Bear- 1st Edition

To my dear sweet Barrett:
Today is Monday, May 5, 2008 and it was a beautiful, sunny spring day! This morning you woke Mommy up at 6:30. You usually never get up before 7:00, so I figured you wanted to snuggle in Mommy & Daddy's bed. As soon as I laid you between us you were right back to sleep. At 7:00, I had to sneak out of bed to try and get ready before you woke again. You were so sweet sleeping there, I had to get a picture of you! You are my favorite little cuddle bug!!
You went to stay with Aunt Kim today while Mommy went to work. Tonight we went to Megan's for dinner with Norah, Lydia and Hadley. As usual, we had one of the famous bfe baby photo shoots! The rest of this week will be busy, busy for us! I can't wait for Thursday, because that's my day to stay home with you. On Friday, you'll be 16 weeks old. You'll go to stay with Gigi, then you get to come to Mommy's work in the afternoon for a special shower just for you!

You've been so much fun over the last few weeks, smiling at everyone you see. In the evenings, Mommy & Daddy love to make you laugh. We'll blow raspberries on your tummy or kiss on your neck until you chuckle. Your little laugh is so sweet! You're growing so fast and we're having so much fun with you. You still love bath time. You just lay there in the water so relaxed. You still love your changing table too! Just the last couple weeks you've really started to wiggle though! You think it's pretty funny to arch your back and scoot your little bum out of your diaper right before I go to put it on! Every week I fold a few more of your outfits, and put them in the tub on the top shelf of your just keep outgrowing things! Thursday night (May 1st) was your first night to sleep in your crib! You were such a good boy. I think all the transitions (from Mommy & Daddy's room to your own room, from your bassinet to your crib) have all been harder for me than you. I'm sure that's the way it will always be. Here are a few pictures from last month of your sweet little morning stretches! You're always so happy in the mornings. I lay you on your changing table to change your diaper and you stretch and smile at me!
Heard this song at work today, and couldn't help but think...I'm going to look back in 18 years and be amazed at how fast it seemed to go by. So, you promise Mommy you won't grow up too quickly AND I'll promise you to cherish every moment along the way!
You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

Have a wonderful week, Little Bear!
Mommy loves you so much!


  1. Sweet letter! Love this idea! And I LOVE that song by Trace Adkins. I listen to it daily...Sometimes when things are crazy and chaotic I need a little reminder of how sad and lonely and empty my life would be without my darling kids and the chaos of our life...and how I am going to miss this all. I am going to get ready for the day so I can cuddle with those sweet munchkins of mine when they wake up!

    Have a great day!

  2. What a cutie! Such a great idea. Love the pjs. So glad I am in mine right now. I will call you tmrw about stopping by!
