Dear Alexander


Dear Alexander,

Four years ago, you were placed in my arms and I was with out a doubt sure that our family was complete.  When you came in to this world, you brought with you so much love, happiness and hope.  I knew you would be amazing the minuet I found out I was pregnant.  I knew that life would never be the same again.  Boy was I right.  I also knew you would be a boy.  I had dreamed of your face with your big brown eyes and your perfect little lips.  You are a dream come true.

If I had to pick one word to describe you, it would have to be Emotional.  You have such a tender heart.  Your feelings get hurt so easily and yet you are so quick to forgive.  You are brave but cautious.  Curious and determined.  You are confident and proud of everything you do. So mischievous and impatient.  Shy one second and then demanding the spotlight.  You are all these and more.  And usually all in one day.

As I look back to the first few years with you, I am overwhelmed with love and happiness.  In such a dark and scary time in my life, I found hope in your eyes and happiness in your sweet little laughs.  A mother is supposed to be the one protecting her children, but you were the one protecting me.  I have said it a million times and I will say it again.  You are my saving grace.

The fours are fun.  I cant wait to see how much you grow this year.  You are so eager to learn new things and explore.  The world is yours little man.  Lets see what we can get ourselves into!  I love you to the moon and back.  You.  My Alexander the Great!
