And now you've grown into a child…skipping right past toddlerhood into the realm of preschooler.
You wear baseball caps, drive tiny matchbox cars, color pictures, sing songs & climb up our jungle gym all by yourself. So I wanted to take a moment and share with you some of my favorite things about you, MRB, at 18 months old.
- You idolize your big brother and insist upon doing just about everything he does.
- When you say "juice" you pucker your luscious little lips together in the most adorable way.
- When you are uncomfortable you come to me and ask "uppy". I pick you up then you rest your head upon me and pat my chest with your hand saying, "mommy, mommy" looking for affirmation that the situation is safe & more importantly, I'm not leaving. I pray I never forget what it feels like to hold you during these moments.
- Your true love is a pink lawn flamingo or "Mingo" as you've named her. She use to reside in Gma's garden & now is at the lake. You've inflicted quite a bit of damage on Mingo, to the point where she only resembles her former self thanks to packing tape. I have to say, you are lucky you're Bopi's namesake or else you'd be in a world of trouble for damaging Dolores the Flamingo AKA "Mingo".
This is just a brief glimpse into the strong willed, vibrant, loving and down right adorable little boy you are. I hope these next 6 months pass slowly as I'm just not ready to close the book on your babyhood.
All My Love-
