10.20.2010

Dear darling boys,

I love you dearly.  I love your hugs and your kisses.  I love the tiny suits and ties....the basketball shorts, the camouflage...yes, Milo---I love you in bright orange shorts....i love Cars and trucks and helicopters and staring at tarantula spiders and holding you when you ride a pony....it was okay being sprayed---that was fine...its been a wonderful coupla years...

but now.....

theres a girl in town.

this will not change my love for you.....love expands to include all....i will think everything you will do is WONDERFUL AND AMAZING AND TOTALLY AWESOME.... i will still think Cannon says Chicken Nuggets and helicopter AMAZINGLY well...and Ben---you will also make me laugh with your infectious laugh

but now....

theres a girl in town....

i'll still find you cute polo shirts...and jeans...and khakis...and tshirts---and I'll one for each of you (whom i kidding? i'll buy multiples for each of you).... i'll keep the good stuff in purse and bite the m & m in half for you....and i'll clean your face...

but now....

theres a girl in town

or there will be.....March 1, 2011...mark the date on your calendar....cause grandma will be spending more time in the baby doll section and pawing thru pink tutus and black Mary Janes and making bows to match every outfit...

I love you...each of your cute individualistics (i know that isnt the proper use of the word---the boys are under 23 months---they arent really reading this anyway)...i love that you are ALL going thru the terrible twos...(even you, Jonas---you are very advanced for your age)....I love skyping with you and singing "eensy weensy spider" and "peek-a-boo" and "the wheels on the bus"

but now...

theres a girl in town.
