You ARE Amazing . . .

My Dear Sweet, Loving Willsey....

Soon you are going to be a big brother. When we first found out, I admit I was a bit scared having to share my love for you with another baby. But as your brother continues to grow inside of me, I find my love for both of you growing each day.

Your love for me, always amazes me. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have your love. Someone who loves me no matter what. Who kisses your boo boos, who tucks you in at night and sometimes gets to snuggle, and you even cover me up with one of your most precious blankets. You love your momma and I love you, more than air.

You talk about your brother a lot, even telling people that you are having a baby brother and you tell them his name. You sometimes will mimic that you are going to rock him just like this, you holding your arms together. Melts me each time. Everyone says that I am so lucky because you seem like you are going to be very welcoming of your little brother. And I have to admit, I think we are going to get lucky. I think you are thrilled to have another little bub to play with, to watch over and to make silly faces at.

Whenever you see a tiny baby, you often look up at me with puppy dog eyes and say, "see mommy, baby is so.....cute!" Which definitely makes me feel good that you have that response instead of another one. You love paying attention to them and are often curious when a mommy rocks, gives the baby a binki or tucks them in to their car seat. I love that you are so attentive and interested in the aspects of a baby. It definitely makes me believe that you are going to be an awesome brother.

When you were a little baby yourself, you suffered from bad acid reflux and getting you to sleep was often a procedure. Daddy and I would take turns rocking you but you preferred to be held and rocked. Daddy had a play list of songs and one night you instantly fell asleep to Seal's, Amazing. The words go..."I want you to always think you are amazing."

And you know what my sweet, Willsey? You are Amazing. And always have been. Please continue to shine and love like you do. Because you are one loving little guy.

Daddy and I love you always, more than air.

So sweet! It's a strange feeling being pregnant with your second, isn't it? how can you possibly love another? But, your heart just grows. It sounds like your big man is making room in his heart too.

You have a sweet message to your son, how I wish when I was young I got that kind of heartfelt words coming from my mother.

Aw, so sweet!

I remember being worried about my second before he was born- if it was possible to love him as much and how my boys would get along. And as soon as he was born, I realized that I shouldn't have worried at all!

What a lovely thing to record for your child! I wish I'd done that for Hadley while I was still pregnant.
