Dear Blake, by Annemarie

Dear Blake,

Today, you are 1000 days old!  I’ve been anticipating this day for quite some time, but then it all but snuck up on me.  I can remember celebrating this with your brother, and it seemed like it was just a little while ago, and now you’re here.  Two years, and a few days shy of 9 months = 1000 days.  I got out the sign last night, cleaned up the kitchen, and hung it with care.  I decorated your plate and picked up donuts and milk on the way home from book club.

I knew it had to be all ready to go since you’re the one that wakes us up these days, the first one out of bed.  You crawl out of your crib, and have been doing so for months, open and close your bedroom door, run down the hallway, and open up our door.  You pop in, and give us your biggest grin.  Even if you do, most times you say “nope” when asked if you have a poopy diaper.  I have no idea when you’re going to want to use the potty, and it doesn’t matter how big we try to invent/bribe you, well, you’re just not interested.

You and I went into the kitchen first, and when you saw your sign, you said “Happy heart, one, oh, oh, oh, dar!”.  I caught onto what you were doing and got a good giggle and immediately pulled you in for a huge hug and a kiss.  Then you got wind of the donuts and requested “I want 5”.  We ended up comprising on 4, and then you ate two eggs and drank a big glass of milk too.  With the “bendy draw” of course.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to jot down some of the super fun things that you do that catch our attention, so I wanted to take this chance to get them all off in writing.

We love you, ALL the time, Blakers.

    You are so very special Blake! I just love to hear you talk, although I don’t always understand you the first time, you say it again. I usually get it that time! 1000 days of loving you is just a little time. I plan to love you for a gazillion!:)
