(leaving the hospital, two days old)

every night after jammies, stories and songs i softly say to atticus his own lullaby: 

i love you, you know
the most
of all the boys in all the land
i'v never loved anyone more than you
you're the smartest and the sweetest and the cutest and the funniest boy i've ever met
and i love you
and i'll always love you
and i'll always be there for you
no matter what
and i'm so proud of the boy you are
i'm so proud to be your mama
thank you for letting me be your mama
it's the best thing
it's my favorite thing

happy birthday my beautiful TWO-year old boy. i couldn't love you more.
