Recently, we opened up an email account for our sweet boy (as we did for Charlie when she was a baby). It’s a place for us to email advice, love and memories. At some point in his life, we will give him access to that email account as a gift.
Hi, my love! I can’t believe you are already 5 months old and this is my first email to you. Let me just tell you that despite not finding the time to write, I have done nothing but love you and love on you. You are the sweetest little man and I am surprised every day by your amazing personality.
You absolutely love to laugh. You radiate happiness.
I constantly hear people say, “Henry loves me! I can always get him to smile!”
I don’t have the heart to tell them that it’s because you’re always smiling. You absolutely love life. Yes, I know that sounds silly because you’re still so young, But really, you love life.
Besides life, you also love your Momma. I spend so much of my day hugging you and being hugged by you. You grab onto my cheeks, my hair, my shoulders… and you pull me in for the most wonderful koala hugs. When we’re not hugging, we’re laughing. Your giggle is this magical, contagious sound that just fills my heart.
You are my sweet boy and I cannot begin to express how much I love you. Before you arrived, I couldn’t imagine what it would be like. How our life would change. How my heart would grow.
It’s been the most amazing 5 months with you and I can say without hesitation that you are so incredibly loved. By me, by Daddy, by Charlie, by your grandparents, by everyone.
I hope that when you finally read this, your heart is still the same. So open and full of life and love. You have a gift, my boy, and it’s bringing happiness to those around you.
The world has big plans for you, sweet Henry, and I’m going to guess that you have big plans for the world.
Thanks for being so incredibly you.
I love you today and always,
