If there’s one thing I want you to remember about this summer, it’s that we had a LOT of fun! I know I don’t always have the most patience, and some days are more exciting than others…but overall, I’ve really relished this first summer at home with both of you. It’s such an incredible feeling to watch the two of you experience the world through each of your unique perspectives, and to know that now our little family is complete. It just makes my heart feel so very full.
This past month, we got to spend a whole week with Abuela, and of course the two of you absolutely soaked up all the extra attention. I was really happy we were able to take a day trip to the beach with her, as I know she missed out on our annual trip to Sea Isle this year. You both loved playing in the sand and splashing around…it was such a fantastic day for all of us! 🙂
One of my favorite parts about this summer has been the hour between dinner and bedtime. This is the first summer where we’ve had a little bit of flexibility on bedtime, and it’s so much fun to be able to go out for walks, play outside, or treat ourselves to ice cream as the sun is setting. I look forward to summers in the future when we’ll be able to go out to movies in the park, Phillies games, bonfires, and even just watching the two of you chase fireflies after dark.
I love watching the two of you build your relationship with each other. With every passing month, Chance just adores you more and more Theo. And I love watching how much you love to snuggle with your baby brother and teach him new tricks too! You are the perfect little comedy duo, and your daddy and I have so much fun just sitting back and watching the show! 😉
As school starts in a few weeks and our schedules will change, it’ll be bittersweet to say goodbye to this summer. Of course, I’m also looking forward to spending the fall and the holiday season with you two, but for just a moment I want to just say thank you for such a wonderful summer. I love you both so very much, and I’m so very thankful to get to spend my days with you. <3
So much love,
