Dear BB

Time has gone so fast!
I can still see that little man face when I lifted the blanket for the first time.
You came with no instructions.
Such a guessing game.
I did too much reading about all the what ifs.
I was scared to put you down…to leave you…for fear of the unknown and all the “possibilities”.
You just seemed to grow and radiate joy exponentially each day.
Healthier, stronger, and smiles that lit up a room.
Each night as I put you to sleep, I would whisper in your ear that you were an amazing prince, born of kings, already overcoming insurmountable odds…destined for greatness…sleep well and safe with all my love.
Somewhere in the threes I think the wrestling to bed took over and I stopped whispering these words to you.
So, tonight…
I will tell you again.
You have risen above statistics.
Grown strong and brave with a loving heart in tact.
New people and places are scary sometimes.
You will shine, just as you have.
And I will be waiting to hear all about it.
You are fine.
And I am here.
