My little fire!

Today is all about Aiden!

My little fire…

And that is what your name literally means. Aiden Kai: Little fire, rejoice… and rejoice is exactly what I did with you came into my life.

My fortune baby, given from the universe, how honored I am that you chose me to nurture you in this lifetime. You are such a precious bundle of joy. My heart ached with happiness when I first stared upon your face.

That first smile was almost my undoing… your babbles and coos are imprinted in my mind. Those first slips as you wobble and fell, send happiness coursing through my veins… oh, how great this is that you are in my life! 

The funny face you made the first time you flew through the air on the playground swing, the pride I felt as you diligently climbed on and off the couch, that mischievous look you get in your eyes when you decide to explore the “forbidden zones”

My little fire…

I promise to always do my best for you. I promise to always protect you while giving you the freedom to reach your full potential. I promise to be there to comfort you. I promise to read to you, sing to you, make silly faces for you, tell you crazy and funny jokes. I promise to make time for you… no matter what, and I promise to always respect you as your own person. I promise to set reasonable limits for you… limits that will help you to grow into a superb human being.

My little fire…

Words cannot express the depth of my love for you… So I promise to show you how much I love you every single second of your life.

My little fire…

The only responsibility I bestow on you is to play, have fun and be the best little boy you can be!

I love you Aiden, my little fire!

Ode to my first born.

In preparation for the upcoming "Week of the Young Child" begining the week of May 6,2014, I have written a "love letter" to each of my boys. Today is all about Adrian!

Here goes!

Ode to my first born

My Sweet Adrian… this is a letter to celebrate you. Thank you for being you! 

Thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you for laughing at my corny jokes and my silly ways. Thank you for playing all those boring board games and reading books with me when you could be watching some really awesome movies on the TV. Thanks for cheering me on, even when I don’t know I need cheering on.

What a great son you are! You are fun, silly, playful, kind, loving, smart, and handsome and so much more. I relish the time we spend together, even when we both are a bit crabby. I love seeing you grow and change. I marvel at your many accomplishments and will always support you, no matter what you choose to do.

Thank you for being you!

You help me to grow… to gain insight into how strong I can be. Thank you for being you! Thank you for being the person who celebrates how special his mother and brother is. Thank you for making everyday a bit more special than the last. Thank you for taking the time to write me little notes and reminders. Thank you for enjoying your baby brother’s company without complaint.

Thank you for being you!

You are one magnificent individual… a true hero in my book. I love you so much, and that goes without say… but I thought I would say it anyway… I love you!

AND… thank you for being YOU!
