This month I really enjoyed our car conversations. You said things like, " Sometimes...... Spiders cry....." or " I know a fly could workout just the same as you do." Each statement would make me think... I couldn't decide if you were just saying random things or if you had an important message.
This month you counted to 29 and then insisted the next number was 2010. I tried to explain to you that I was 29 and I would be 30 next. You said I was 29 and Mimi was 2010.
You have been telling me recently how happy you make Mimi and how much she misses you when you are not around. I wanted to take pictures of you and Mimi this month because I love watching the two of you play. Since you were born, Mimi has changed so much. We had a rough year at the beginning of 2010, but when you were born everything changed. I saw Mimi smile for the first time in years. Truly smile. She all of the sudden had a whole new outlook on life. She lost over 80 pounds just so she could keep up with you when you started walking. Now she has more energy than anyone I know. Seeing her happy and healthy is such a gift.
I know everyone always says this, but after you have your own baby, you find a new appreciation for your parents. When you were born I needed Mimi more than I ever imagined I would. I remember my own childhood and how she filled it with magic. She made it all look so easy. I feel so lucky that we have her today. I hope you always know how you were heaven sent, and how you changed our lives into something wonderful.
