Tonight we ate dinner together. Just you and I. You ate some green and orange soft food (also known as sweet potatoes and peas) and I ate some pasta and corn. Your dad is traveling this week. We miss him already don't we?
Your dad misses you like crazy when he's away. You are so lucky Samuel. You have such a good dad. He works so hard so we can be a family together. He doesn't think he could ever love anyone more than he loves you.
It's fun to watch him be a dad because he is really good at it. Even when it's hard - like this past weekend when you woke up at 5:55 a.m. He hopped out of bed to get you a bottle. He just does that without thinking...because he's a really really good dad. And he loves to see you in the morning.
You recently started saying da da and ma ma. You don't know what those sounds mean yet, but they melt our hearts. Your dad goes crazy when he hears you saying "da da da da da da."
We never knew Samuel that hearing da da da da or ma ma ma ma would be some of the most precious sounds our ears would ever hear.
You bring so much joy to our lives. Your smiles, when you clap and when you giggle...it's like the world stops and we get to soak in the joy of being your dad and mom.
We love it Samuel. Every day we love it. Even when it's hard. And the most amazing thing is that it just keeps getting better and better.
I look forward to many more dinners with you my little man. Soon you'll be eating mac-n-cheese and asking for ice cream. But today it's just green and orange food, da da da da and more love than we know what to do with.
