A Letter to My First Born!

My dearest Jacob,

I don't know why I've put off writing you a letter for so long.  I should have done this the day you were born, but that day was a complete whirlwind and honestly the details are a bit foggy.  Some day I'll share your birth story with you.  I hope it means as much to you as it does to me!

You are such a beautiful little boy.  Always smiling and laughing.  Every day you crack us up with another cute little anecdote or story.  I wonder sometimes where you pick these things up.  You certainly are a little sponge, always soaking up anything and everything you can. 

You're about to start preschool in a few weeks and I can't wait!  I'm pretty nervous for you, though, I won't lie.  I'm sure you will do fine, but a mother can never help worrying about her babies.

I'm hoping this blog will be around for many, many years to come, so I can show you some day the letters that I am planning to write you and those I will write to your brother.  It'll act as your digital "baby book".  I'm so honored to have you in my life and so lucky to be able to call you my sweet little boy!  I love you, Bubba!

Love, Mommy
