This month I want to write to you about our family. There are so many wonderful traits that I see both your daddy and I have passed on to you. You are playful and cuddly and a constant joker/performer just like your daddy. But more importantly, you are loyal and honest, just like him too. You have his same nurturing spirit and I am proud that you have such a wonderful role model to teach you how to cook, clean up around the house and care for others like he does. One day you’ll read this when you’re all grown up, and I may or may not have the same wonderful, glowing compliments to say about your dad (you know, depending on the day, and the status of the laundry and dishes). But I want you to know that despite our ups and downs, your daddy and I love each other very much, and I am so very proud of the precious traits and lessons he is passing on to you.
You are also a dreamer and a feeler, which means you are full of both a fantastic imagination as well as the occasional sense of overwhelming emotion and anxiety. You are so lovably quirky and full of big ideas, but sometimes the world is still just too big for you to swallow and so you continue to turn to your beloved pacifiers, “Old Bluey” and “Old Greeny” and your favorite lovey…my “squishy elbow”. 🙂 As a therapist’s son, you are the only two year old I know who is able to state “I feel a little bit nervous right now”, and even though I wish the world didn’t have to be such a stressful place for all of us some days, I am thankful that you are able to express your emotions so clearly at such a young age.
Every day I tell myself, “It can’t possibly get any more fun than this stage Theo is at right now!” and then every next day you go right ahead and prove me wrong! 🙂 I love seeing the world through your eyes, and I hope that I am doing it at least a little bit of justice from behind this camera lens!
Each month, I join a small group of other talented photographer moms to write a letter to our sons. Please keep reading through this blog circle by visiting Abbotsford Lifestyle Photographer, Candice Victoria Photography.
