To My Beautiful, Wonderful Boys

Bug & The Little Guy,

Today our world changes, again. It's hard to imagine that I could love another baby as much as I love each of you but if I have learned anything the last 5 1/2 years it's that I have no idea just how much love I have to give until I bring another baby until the world. Every day I love my family more and more, and it's because you boys are so incredible. Yesterday at breakfast the waitress told me her kids we teenagers and she doesn't miss what I've got at all. Well I feel sorry for her. Her teenagers must not have been the blessing that you are. I already know that I will miss this so much some day. Some day Bug, you'll stop wanting to dress up in fancy pants and a sport coat to go out to dinner, and some day my Little Guy, you'll start saying words how they are supposed to be said. I will miss this. I will miss the lives we had before we brought your baby sister home.

But now we get to start a new journey, one with little pink dresses and ballet classes. I have no doubt that you boys will be the absolute best big brothers ever. You'll protect her and show her the way, you'll love her and you'll toughen her up. She'll be hunting and playing with dump trucks in the mud, all while wearing a tutu. I know you will each pass along your amazingness to her. She will be smart and funny like you Bug and sweet and fearless like the Little Guy. Yes, our family is changing again, but each time we add another baby it gets even better. We have some changes to make but it's nothing we can't handle. You boys are the most amazing little boys ever and I am a better person for having had you. I love you so much!
