How are you 18 months old?

10:38 PM

Dear Elijah,

It seems like yesterday that you were less that an hour old. I was still so unsure of what on earth I was doing as a Mama but I was so in love with you!

You were so NEW. So tiny (although at the time I thought you were so big) and perfect in every way. I marveled every time I looked at you.

Everyone said to appreciate every moment because time just flies and, while I believed them, I had no idea how fast time really does fly.

Yesterday you turned 18 months old. It absolutely blows my mind how you could have grown so fast and yet it seems every day you are learning something new. You amaze me!

Today I look at you and marvel. Your little pudgy hands that love to play with my hair as you are going to sleep. 

Your adorable expressions. Your infectious laugh. The way you nod yes and shake your head no.

Your sense of humor (you are a total ham son and yes you probably inherited that from me lol).  Your sweet spirit. You are truly a blessing in so many ways! 

Things are going to be changing for you soon little man. You are going to be a big brother in less then 9 weeks. Time has been speeding by and you have begun to notice there is something going on with Mama's belly! :)  

I am so excited to introduce your little brother to you! You are so gentle with babies and it will be so fun to see you interact with Micah :)

You are my first born son and I am so thankful for you! No matter how many children the Lord blesses your Daddy and I with always know that you are so very much loved. You are truly a gift from God!

These last 18 months have been some of the best of my life because you have been in them and I am so excited for the upcoming months and years to come!

I love you baby boy!

  1. I can't believe how much he has grown too! Little Elijah, I remember where I was and what I was doing the day your mamma posted news of your birth on Facebook. I was so excited! After all the waiting, you were finally here. And now you are growing up and I know I can still be excited about life for you, because your Mamma and Daddy are loving you as much as they can and - even more than that - they are teaching you to love Jesus with everything. And that is all I would hope for for you.

    1. Aww thank you Rachael! You are so sweet :)
