Learning Fast

Dear Dominic,

You are learning so fast these days! People tell me you can tell something is about to change at your house, with the arrival of your brother, Im not sure i believe it. You can't possibly know there is a person in mommys tummy, i think! Sometimes i have a hard time comprehending how that miracle works. You say baby when you pull up my shirt, and sometimes even daddy's, yours and your cousins shirts :) You throw things in the garbage for us, put your clothes in the hamper, grab your diapers and shoes when asked. Lately you love to put shoes on, mine, dads and yours. It is so wonderful watching the things you learn. You copy me with my makeup, eyelash curler and hair brush. Today we are looking at our new stroller and you point to the car seat and say baby, while trying to do the buckles. I know you will be an amazing big brother, and such a big help. I can't wait to see you teach your brother the things you learn, hopefully only the good things.

I love you,

Not my idea

Dear Sons,

I have to tell you that this Journal was not my idea. I ran across it from a former co-worker, that i have much respect for, and knew i had to have one for my kids too. I had already had a blog, but wasn't good at keeping up on it, and it wasn't just letters to you, it was about our life-which became to busy for me to write about. Anyway, as i struggle sometimes on what to write to you, i think that i need to go to this co workers blog to see how she writes to her kids. Then i get mad that i can't do this myself and don't look at her blog and dont end up writing to you. Well there is a big difference between me and this co-worker, therefore there will be a difference between what we write our children. I wanted you to know that it is ok to do things the way you want to, the way that things come to you and are executed by you, are who you are. I spend so much time analyzing how to do things perfect or better, that it takes up to much time and i don't end up doing them at all. I hope that you don't struggle with that, and are able to just do things. A lot of times, your first instinct is the right one. I love you boys,

Love your Mother.

I have been wanting to do this for so long, gosh.....20 months to be exact. I thought I would document every diaper change, feeding, outing, movement, and accomplishment of you. Boy was i wrong. I underestimated the job i had just hired myself for, for the rest of my life. Oh, Dominic you have kept me so busy i get exhausted just watching you. And im still in my roaring 20's!! I will make it my passion to give you and your brother the memories of your childhood. Today you are 1 day away from being 20 months old. I had no idea what happiness you would bring me, and sometimes pain. I want this journal to be a way for you to look back and hopefully see how much you mean to your dad and I. You are growing so fast. You learn a new word almost everyday, but no word can compare to your favorite "No". You say no, to EVERYTHING you are asked, even while nodding your head up and down. You love mickey mouse clubhouse, you will smile,sing and dance when you hear it on the TV. You dance the second you hear any kind of music. Right now you love Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Anything else on the radio for that matter. I have to go put you down for a nap now, you love to take naps with dad or I. I love you!
