Dear Reeve & Baby L….
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Goodbye 2014 and Hello 2015!!!!
I cannot wait to see what this New Year has in store for me, my family and all of you. Mostly, I’m excited that we will be growing by one and I look forward to getting to see Reeve as a Big Brother. The joy I feel when I think about how he gets a Best Friend For Life is almost equal to that I felt at the wonder of his sweet face when he was born. I get to give him his Best Man, his best buddy, a confidante, a Robin, a partner in crime, a wrestling partner….life for Reeve will only get better from here on out. A lot of people are quick to warn me how difficult life is with two, but I’m truly looking forward to getting to share more love within our home and creating a brotherhood that outlasts any other relationship these boys will have.
As I type this, Reeve is sitting in a full Batman costume on the bed eating a lunch of salami, cheese and apples. It’s snowing outside and when this Batman cartoon ends, it’s time for his nap. Daddy should be home soon and we will bake our Traditional M&M Chocolate Chip cookies to eat with Milk tonight. Our party hats and poppers are ready to go and I’m really excited about our Family Resolution that Kirk & I will come up with tonight. It’s been no secret that I want SERVICE & GIVING to play a larger part of our lives in 2015.
I’m really excited for tomorrow night after Reeve is asleep when I get to put my pajamas on and curl up under the covers to write in my One Line A Day Journal for Reeve. I’ve written in his every day for 3 years and, tomorrow, I get to start a new one for Baby L.
