letters to our sons: september ’13

Little Man/Kaden K/Brother Bear,

Two days from now, we will celebrate your first birthday. It’s so hard to believe we’re here – the day we welcomed you into this world seems like just yesterday! And what an awesome day that was – one that I would do over again and again!


I love the stage you’re at now. Well, who am I kidding, I love to watch you grow all the time! You’re so into anything with wheels – you sit and roll them around for I’m sure what seems like forever for you (Truth? It’s better than your normal 30 second attention span, so we’ll take the minute or so that you give it!).

Just yesterday, you started shaking your head ‘no.’ It’s so fun to watch you think about what you have to do before you shake your head. I love it!


You’re so ready to walk! You stand on your own and walk along things with one hand. Once you’re brave enough and put the pieces together, you’ll be gone! I don’t worry; you’re already into enough as it is, so I don’t look at it as more trouble. Instead, I welcome not having to carry you all. the. time.

But my favorite? When I sit on the floor and say, “Awwww!” Over you crawl to snuggle your head into my leg! It’s so sweet! I hope you keep that side of you – you’re a sweet little man, and I want you to always stay that way!


So a few days early, my little man – Happy First Birthday! I hope you have a year full of growth, learning, happiness, love and most of all, FUN!

All my love,
MaMum (If you call me what your sister does!)

And with that, please continue on in our blog circle and read the next letter – visit Amber of Amber Thorton Photography!!!
