Where do I even begin, Brody? You have taught me so much. So much. Your latest lesson to me was, "be happy mommy!.... SMILE!!!" If I get a little down it doesn't last long with my sweet Brody teaching me to forget my troubles and to just-smile. All you ever want is to see people smiling... happy. I've taught you how to say please and thank you but you teach me even greater lessons. I couldn't be more grateful to be your mommy. You call me mom now mostly- I guess that means I'm growing up too.
My baby is three years old (even though you always tell me, "i'm not a baby!"). Seems like just yesterday I saw you for the first time. It was the most amazing moment of my life up to that point. And then there's me, a three year old mom. So many what-if's or should've-done-betters, on my part. But I wouldn't change a thing- I've learned a lot! Thank you for always loving me and needing me- even while I'm learning how to be the best mom I can be:)
Looking back on these little videos since you were born made me super emotional- the reality of passing time hit me and I just want life to slow down! I miss those times when you were learning to crawl and then walk... or when you learned how to give kisses. But even though I miss those times, I'm excited for all the years ahead. The last three years have been so wonderful. I'm in constant awe at you! I hope you know and feel my love for you... and of course, as you've been taught- don't forget the love Heavenly Father has for you. You are amazing and special, I love you so very very much.... happy third birthday sweetheart.
