Life with you is a walk in the park

Dear Sweet Aiden,
You are 3 months old and then some. Time is flying by quicker than I can stand, but every new stage with you is wonderful. Today I packed away your 0-3 month clothes and my eyes went misty looking at each outfit and thinking about you in it. You have no idea how much joy you have brought to our lives in 3 short months. Your smiles melt my heart, your giggles fill me with happiness and your pouty lip gets me every.single.time. You are so curious all the time. When you first meet someone you have to study them for a few minutes with that furrowed brow of yours, but then you light up the room with your little sideways smile. You love music and splashing in the bath tub. Next week I'm taking you to your first baby swim class. I can't wait to see you in the "big bathtub."

You are definitely your Daddy's mini me and I love it. You have his dark eyes and his ears and I hope you grow up to be just like him.
You have already made me a braver, more patient and stronger woman. I may not be the perfect Mom, but I am your Mom and I will live everyday trying to make your world a wonderful one.
I hope you grow to love and respect your family, to shine your light for the Lord and to know that you are one loved little boy. I couldn't go another day without spilling my guts to you because I just love you so dang much. Life with you is a walk in the park.

This is the sweetest. You know I love a mini-me... and the misty feeling never goes away, no matter what size clothes you're packing away.

Also: wasn't it amazing that we actually COULD take a walk in the park over the weekend? :)
