Dear Son...

Dear Ace,

It is such a joy to be your mommy. I love what a kind and gentle spirit you have - and yet you are still all boy. You have a loving heart and care about those around you. I pray every day that you will grow up and keep those qualities. My prayer is that you grow into a loving man of God that can crush the competition in what ever you seek in sport and career. Although my selfish prayer is that you won't grow up *too* fast and that you continue to love your mommy and dad with as much thrill and excitement that you've always have. I love that you run into our room every morning to give all of us hugs and kisses.

I love that you love your sister, and I hope that you still do after she is here. Things will be changing. We no longer will have every day just to ourselves and I know that you will miss that, because I too will miss that. I hope you understand (or will come to see) though that we're in for a new and exciting adventure with your sister. That while it will be different, it won't be bad. She is going to add a whole new chapter to our family's fun, challenges, and excitement and I know that you will do your best to show her how to do things. You're going to be a great big brother.

You amaze me every day with where you are at in learning, language, and love; and while you could do none of it and I would still love you just as much, I beam with pride and amazement every time you conjure up a thought from three weeks ago that we talked about for two seconds to remind me of what I had promised in that moment to move on from said subject. Mom and Dad joke that we can't talk about people anymore around you because you will surely repeat anything that was ever uttered in front of you - hours, days, weeks or even MONTHS later. You are a sponge for knowledge and we try our best to provide you with a strong foundation of 'education' early and still let you run around, be silly, and play.

Ace, you are a blessing. Thank you for making it such a joy (even in the 'terrible' twos) to be your mommy. Your father and I love you very much and know that no matter who else joins this family, where we go in life, or what we experience together - that will never change.

All my love,
