Nathan turned 26 months on Saturday and I realized that I can no longer keep counting his age in months. I can't imagine saying one day "my son is 53 months old". He is two years old and is growing up every day. I used to do monthly updates but that no longer seems relevant.
I have a friend who writes monthly letters to her son, something which I love. So rather than keep posting monthly updates I want to begin writing letters to Nathan. Letters that I hope he will read one day, letters that I can look back on and remember all of these special moments in his life.
So today, I will share my first letter.
We spent this month surrounded by family and you loved every single second of it. It was so amazing to see you play with your aunt and uncle. To see how you warmed up to them even after not having seen them for over a year. You would wake up every morning asking for them and go to bed every night telling them goodnight.
You've also been loving spending time with your grandmother "Nana". I don't know who will suffer more when she is gone you or her. After spending an entire month with her you now speak more Spanish than ever, which is keeping all of us on our toes. She tucks you in every night and sings to you. You wake up asking for her and immediately run to her when you need to be spoiled. Every child should be loved and spoiled this way by grandparents.
Even though Christmas is over, you still ask for Santa and run around the house saying "Ho Ho Ho Merry Mismas". It is so endearing and it is clear that the Christmas magic has stayed with you.
You are turning into such a wonderful and caring young boy. You have amazed us with your love and tenderness for your little brother. You love to share your milk with him even though he won't drink it and you give unprompted kisses when he is crying. You also love to tell him to "pleure pas bebe" which means "don't cry baby" as you console him.
We can't tell you how much fun we are having with you and how lucky we feel to have you in our lives.
Mommy & Daddy
