Dear Little Brother

Dear Little Brother,

I wanted you to know some things about your big brother you don't know right now because you're just a little muffin. I hope you will appreciate knowing these things some day.

*He can't get enough of you. He is constantly wanting to kiss you, hug you, and touch you (as long as he doesn't have to wash his hands first--ha!).
*He loves chocolate milk.
*The morning after the first night you came home, he asked, "Mommy, is Kace still here?" He was excited, not irritated that you were "still here."
*He is an amazing conversationalist!
*He is ready to play with you but knows it will be a while because "baby's just drink milk."
*He likes to snuggle.
*He is so proud of you. Whenever anyone comes to see you, he says, "You can touch him if you wash your hands."
*He loves to help Mommy in the kitchen. He got his own kitchen for Christmas that he likes to make soup in!
*The moment you met is a moment I will never forget. Riley had to wait 13 days after you were born to meet you because you were in the hospital getting stronger. Riley came around the corner and went straight for you. He had a hard time keeping his hands off of you.
*He had a hard time while Mommy was in the hospital, but was really a trooper for 75 days of "abnormality." He sure did love his time with his grandparents though!
*He still calls you "My Baby." He started calling you that the minute he knew you were on your way.
*He loves his Dog and Pillow.
*He is working on telling the difference between "crying" and "baby noises." He's getting it now.
*Every day he asks to hold you. Several times he has held you for an entire episode of Spiderman or Scooby-Doo. (That's a long time for an almost four-year-old!)
*He is making plans about things you'll play when you "get bigger."
*He thinks that baby pictures of him are you!
*He can't wait to take you to the ranch. It will be a while before you ride in his Gator though.
*He has a stubborn streak--watch out!
*He knew how to spell your name when you came home from the hospital.
*He loves you and is looking out for you already!
I hope this helps someday. I love you too!
