love letter

I could write you a love letter everyday

to tell you that I love that you have dimples instead of knuckles,

and that I love that, even though you are growing and stretching, you still haven't lost your rolls,

and to tell you how it makes me feel to make you squeal with laughter,

and to tell you that I am amazed everyday that your papa and I made you,

and to tell you that sometimes right after you fall asleep, right after your breath slows to a rhythmic in and out, right after your eyelids become too heavy to hold open, you chuckle straight from your belly and I wonder what your beautiful brain is thinking,

and to tell you that I may wash your clothes in Dreft forever so that you always smell just like this,

and to tell you that we are just starting to hear what your voice sounds like and it sounds like music,

and to tell you that I count my blessings a thousand times a day that I get to spend it with you,

and to tell you that my heart swoons because you don't dance to every song you hear, only the ones that make you groove,

and to tell you that I love how much you love when your papa comes home, and how you have a best friend named Lucy,

and about this and this

I could write you a love letter everyday to tell you that you are my boy and I am your mom.

Everyday.
