A Letter to Andrew

Dear Andrew,

I'm not sure what we mean when Daddy and I tell you that you are going to be a big brother, but very soon you will really know! In just a couple more months, you will get to meet your little brother, Alex. You are going to be the best brother ever! And, you are going to be the best little helper - I know that because you already are (even when I don't need the dirty dishes put away instead of kept in the dishwasher!)!

When you meet him, he is going to be very tiny, very loud, very sleepy, and very hungry. He will cry. But, you can be my helper and try to make him happy again. You can help me read books and sing songs to him. You will even get to hold him. But watch out...I bet he is going to be a wiggler just like you were.

He won't know how to play with you just yet, but he will catch on.  But, he will get bigger. Then, you can show him all of your elephants and give him all of his lions. Show him how to be gentle with Max. You can show him all of the tricks that your Daddy and I fall for. And, I'm sure you might get a few new ones from him, too. 

Want to know something funny? You were that little one time. You are about 1 1/2 now. You run, laugh, talk, copy us, sing, dance. You do a lot. You are so funny, too! You make Daddy and me laugh all the time! You chase after Max and pet him all the time, too. You love books and playing outside. You are so amazing and we are so proud of all the things that you are leaning and doing every day. You are going to be such a great big brother!

We love you so much!

Mommy (Daddy, too - but he's at work right now!)

PS - While I wrote this, you were supposed to be taking a nap... Instead you played in your crib the whole time laughing and talking about I don't know what. It was pretty funny to listen to. You are so silly. You must know the weekend is coming!
