I used to write letters like this to your sister when she was a baby, but this is my first one to you. Well, my personal journal is filled with thoughts about you, but those are a little too sappy to share on a blog. I hope you know how much I love you. I love the way you have this worried look on your face constantly. You always look a little scared, but you burst into the sweetest smile when you realize someone is nearby. It melts my heart every time. I love the way you smell and the way you curl your fingers around mine. And don't worry about all the spit up on my shirts. I know you like to lay over my shoulder, so I'll put up with that anytime.
You are so sweet now that you are cooing. I know that you love to have your belly rubbed and your toes tickled. That makes you coo the most. I am sorry that your sister steals your pacifiers. One day you will be able to get them back, but that's the down side of being the little brother, I guess. But when you get upset, I am glad you enjoy listening to your classical music CD. That always calms you down.
One thing that is so special about you is that you love to be held. Your sister was a little more independent, but you need me a little bit more. Don't be fooled. I secretly love that. As I write this I am watching you sleep right beside me. I am so glad that you are already sleeping through the night. I hope you are having sweet dreams right now and I pray that all of them will come true for you.
I love you,
