Happy Birthday, Monkey
Five years ago – 9:36 PM I sat in a hospital room waiting on your dad to get back with some food.
I sat in a hospital bed with my fingers tracing lazy circles over my stomach, over you. I tickled and pushed and watched you push back. I talked to you and dreamed of you. I shared dreams and hopes and wishes with you, whispering and imagining.
12:26 PM on September 20th, 2006 – our family became complete.
Sept 20th, 2006 at about 3:26 PM
The moment you were in my arms, I knew – you were what we’d been waiting for. Our family was complete, my heart full, every piece in place.
September 30th, 2006 – 10 Days Old. Our Family
You bring such joy to our lives
You are fearless
You are loving
You are a gift.
You’re a devilishly brilliant perfect combination of your Daddy and Me and you’re designed to enchant us and drive us bananas.
You’re sweet and cuddly and snarly and prickly.
You have the biggest heart and the attitude to match it.
You give hugs and kisses as freely as you climb the walls of our house and send my heart racing.
Every. single. one of your joys, I feel in my soul.
Every. single. pain, bump, bruise, scar, knock and heartache (Of which you are the king of all) I feel times 1,000.
I love you so very much.
Happy 5th Birthday, Monkey. I can’t wait to see what this year brings.
So cute! And that picture with the guitar…incredible awesome. You should submit it to be a greeting card…I would love to get a card like that – it would make me smile every time I saw it! 🙂
Happy birthday to your little Monkey, even if he’s starting to not be so little!
