Happy 8th Birthday, John John

Eight years ago today I cried as we dropped your big brother off with a sitter to go to the hosptial to meet you for the first time. I felt like I was betraying him by having another baby. I didn't know how I could love another person as much as I love him.  And I know some days you swear I don't.  But the moment I met you I fell in love with you.  From the first day you proved to be different from your big brother.  He was a chubby thing and you were long and lean.  And you have continued to prove that brothers can be as different as can be.  As the picture to the left really shows well, you are quiet and humble.  You have a sweet sweet heart and a deep love for all people and animals. 
You are such a smart guy and it makes me so proud to be your mom when we regularly get compliments from your teachers about what a pleasure you are in school.
I love that you will bust out the moves and sing and dance with me and just have fun!  I love being silly with you!!
But I also love to watch you doing something you really love right now, building with LEGOS.  It awesome to watch your concentration as you work on your latest project.  And I don't think I'll ever forget how quickly you built the Harry Potter Hogwarts building.  And the best part is seeing how proud you are of yourself when you are done.

I love you so much buddy!!  You are so special to me and I hope that you really know that!!


PS Since I left a song for Timmy this year I figured I'd leave you one too. And I leave you a song I love watching you sing on the Wii
