My dear sweet boy,

You are 14 months old. It is amazing what you have learned in these last few months, how much you have grown. You understand so much of what we say to you! You can point to your nose, your head, and your tummy. When we tell you that it's bathtime, you eagerly run towards the bathroom, ready to squirt and splash! You love to play outside, and find endless fascination in things like leaves, fences, trees, sand, pine needles...

In the photo above, you learned how to go down the slide all by yourself!! You had a marvelous time and wanted to do it again and again.

You have an impish little grin that makes everyone who sees you fall in love with you. You're going to get away with all sorts of mischief when you get bigger! Especially when you and James get together. Your Aunt Holly and I are going to be on our toes!

I love you so very much, my precious baby. You bring joy and delight to every day. I am so very, very blessed to have you for a son. As you grow up, I pray that you and I will be able to keep this very special relationship that we have. Don't stray away from me, small one. You will always be my Punkin-Boo-Bear!

love love love

What a sweet sentiment! Save it for him and give it to him one day. He'll love it.

And yes, those eyes look like they could melt any woman's heart!!

TOOOOOOOO CUTE! It's not the slide I was worried about with Bode. It was when he was 13 months old and Jamie was "watching" him in our backyard when he climbed up the huge ladder on our playset by himself. He about gave me a heart attack!!

P.S. LOOOOOOVE the new additions to your song. :-)
