Dear Dexter (15 month letter)

Dear Dexter,

You are 15 months old today!  You are one of the happiest people I know.  Your smile is contagious and people always ask me, “he’s always happy, isn’t he?”  My answer is, “yep, pretty much!”  It’s true.  That’s what I think of when I think of you – happiness.

You still have seven teeth.  Four on top and three on bottom.  You haven’t gotten any new teeth in about 6 months so I imagine we are all in for a treat pretty soon.  I’m sure it won’t change your happy disposition though.  Right?

You are starting to talk more and will repeat anything anyone tells you to.  Sometimes you surprise me by saying something I didn’t even know you knew how to say.  You love putting on everyone’s shoes and walking around with them clopping on the floor.  You love to follow your big brother around and play whatever he’s playing.

You like food – most kinds of food and large quantities of food.  You’re still just a little guy though, right around 20th percentile in weight and 50th in height.  You still wake up around 5 or 6am most days, wanting a bottle of warm milk.  Mom’s a sucker for those big blue eyes and hasn’t made you give it up yet.  Soon though.

Lots of stuff has been going on lately with our new house.  I know mommy and daddy haven’t been around as much lately but it’s all for you and Theo.  We are making our new house nice.  You are going to have a wonderful place to grow up and do you know why?  Because you deserve it.  You deserve the world, my cute little blondie, and we will do our best to give it to you.

You turned our world upside down, Dex, but guess what?  We wouldn’t have it any other way.
