** I started writing these before valentines day, but never finished. It's cool to see the growth that these kiddos have had in just a few short weeks. Seeing them progress in their development is amazing!**
Miss Maylee Baby Honey,
Mommy loves you so much! I love the way you breathe and get so excited when you start crawling somewhere. I love how you crawl to me just to sit on my lap or to have me hold you. I love your sweet little two teeth grin and giggle. I love the way you laugh and follow your big brother around. I love your excitement to eat leaves and get dirty when outside. I love the way you stick your right fist in your mouth when mommy feeds you baby food. I love the way you pat on your food tray when you want more. I love the way you shake your legs with excitement when mommy or daddy hold you to chase Marshall. I love the alone time I get with you when your brother takes his naps. I love your sweet chunky cheeks and petite figure. I love the way you yank your bows off your head. I love your sweet little raspy voice when you talk. I love when you say 'dada'. I love the excitement you have when you pull yourself up to something because watching you learn is an amazing thing.
Mommy loves you so much! I love how you always say 'hi' and 'bye', even if it's right after that person left the room so they don't hear you. I love the way you shake with excitement over the simplest things. I love how cautious, yet willing you are. While you are afraid of many things, you grab my hand so I can help you conquer your fears. I love conquering your fears together, and I love when you start to do things on your own. While your speech delay can be hard at times, it makes it that much more fun when you learn new words, which I love! I love how you will always come sit on my lap or give me a hug and say 'hug' when I am sitting on the ground. I love the way you say 'outside' and how excited you get when you get to go out. I love your fascination with closing doors, and throwing things away. Even if it's things that are not meant to be thrown away. I love how you let your sister play with you, and ask about her when she is napping. I love when you two laugh together. I love the way you give kisses, but it's not in the way that you would expect. You bring your cheek up to mine, daddy's, or Maylee's lips and expect us to kiss your cheeks. I love the way you like to read books and point and say the things that you see. I love your fascination with birthday cakes, even though mommy never makes cakes. I love the way you pretend to eat food in books. I love how excited you are to see milk at the grocery store and demand me to get it every time. I love to hear you count, even if it's just to two most of the time. Your little voice is to die for.
