I had big plans for the images in this ‘letters to our sons‘ post…but the darn cold + rain just would not go away. sooooo, to celebrate his birthday I’ll take the images I had in mind and post them later! for now, here’s a letter to my very first baby. I typed it through tears, remembering back to when he arrived. you’ll have to forgive the image quality here in the beginning…these are from FOUR YEARS AGO…we all start somewhere, right? 😉 don’t forget to follow the link at the bottom of this post to make the circle!
you can always go from ‘serious’ to ‘silly’ so fast…I love that about you!
and I just can’t resist adding a *few* mostly recent iPhone snaps!!
next in our blog circle…the always inspiring + one of my very sweet friends, Megan Cieloha…make sure you read her post!
sandra miller - I LOVE this!
I love it even more because our two year old is also and ANDREW!
What a fun idea.
Thanks for sharing!
Jes Gwozdz - They grow up so fast. Lovely words and images, Leah!
Lindsey - I can’t believe Andrew will be four either! Happy birthday, A! We love you!!
Lacey - Happy early Birthday to Andrew! It has been so fun to watch him grow on your blog, Leah! <3
Elle - Happy Birthday to Andrew!! I love your words, Leah – and your images (even four years ago) are just beautiful <3
Kyley - Umm…tears! I’m crying just reading this. I cannot believe he is going to be FOUR!! Oh how I remember finding out you were pregnant and meeting him the first time. Love him…love you…love it all!!
zoe - beautiful. happy birthday, andrew!!! and happy 4th “becoming a mommy” anniversary, leah. 🙂
Courtney Karban - Oh my, this is so touching and sweet and some points I felt as if I was writing it about my own 3.5 year old. I am dreading 4, but it is SO fun to watch them grow and learn. I think Andrew and Cayson would be the best of friends, although they may get into a debate since Cayson likes to negotiate too and they would never let each other forget ANYTHING! (Where do they learn that from?) Happy Birthday to your sweet first born. His is such a cutie!
Joan Wiethorn - Leah,
