to my first baby.

Moses at birth.
At One.
At Two.
At Three.

Dear Moses,

Happy Third Birthday!
I can't believe you are three already. It seems like we JUST brought you home from the hospital...but here we are three (way TOO short) years later.

Some things you should know.

You are the best. Your dad and I love you so very much that some days it hurts. We can't imagine our lives without you and will always be here to love you, protect you and support you.
You are funny and sweet...you are silly and kind. You seem to be a lot like your dad was when he he was little...there are times when we even call you "Little Doug".

You make us want to be the best parents ever. You make us want to protect your childhood from anything that would make you grow up too fast. We just want to keep you innocent as long as we can...and it is just not that easy in today's world. We have made and will keep making mistakes...but you should know that we are trying our best and always trying to do better. We will always tell you we are wrong when we know that we are because we want you to be a man who can admit his errors and learn from them.

We can tell that you already have a friend in Jesus...you talk to him daily and I have overheard you playing with Him like an imaginary friend...I am sure this makes Him even more happy than it makes me. To hear you talk about and to Jesus makes us feel like we are doing something right...I hope we can keep doing it.

You have grown so much in the last couple of months...you became potty trained, stopped sucking your fingers (all on your own) and stopped carrying Doggy around with you everywhere. You adjusted well to having a little brother and we can tell that you love him so much. You are going to be a great brother.

You are very busy. And loud. It's true...and though sometimes it is hard to take...we wouldn't change you one bit...because we take that busyness and loudness to mean happy and healthy.

Right now you love trains, blocks, books, cars and anything Daddy is doing.

And we love you. So much.
We are blessed to have you in our lives and are SO very thankful that God chose us to be your mom and dad. What an honor to be your mom. You are a great kid and I cannot wait to see what you will do with yourself in the years to come.

Happy Birthday, Moses!
You are loved and don't you ever forget it.

love, mom and dad.

Pin It!
