To Maxwell (aka Bubblecakes, Monster-butt, Pooda)

I snuggle up closer and and bury my nose in your freshly washed hair...it smells faintly of coconut and is soft against my cheek. Each night one of your arms is intertwined with mine, while the other is wrapped tightly around teddy. I hear your breathing grow steady and I know you've fallen into a deep sleep. It's been 2 years with just the two of us...we were all the other had. Each night we've cuddled up together and said our prayers, wrapped our blankets around us and stayed hidden from the cares of the world.

And when I awaken each morning, there you are. Like sunshine coming in thru an open window - with a smile big enough to light up the midnight sky. No matter what dream I had dreamt, no matter how much I'd tossed and turned...waking up to your face made me let go of it all...let go of it all and grin back at you.

A new adventure is beginning for us this weekend -
You will walk me down the aisle, not to give me away...
but to join hands with Gabe and I and create our family. Yes, things will change, but only for the better. And although it will be hard for your Mama to let go a little,
give you your own room and your own space...we will be exactly where we are meant to be.

You are my heart and soul...love you, bubba!

BTW, when you texted yesterday to say you were relaxing by the pool...I thought, "That's the way to do it! Walk down the aisle and then bask in the sun with your family!" So glad the weather was beautiful for you!
