A Big Day For My Little Boy

Last night I went into the boys room

Climbed into the bottom bunk and snuggled up,

Just for a moment,

Next to my sweet Collin.

I couldn’t help myself.

Ya see, yesterday was a BIG day for my little guy.

He hit another milestone and I was overwhelmed with emotion.

I wanted to hug him and hold him close.

During school yesterday…


He sounded out his first word,

Then his second

And kept going until he had mastered an ENTIRE sentence!!

I hugged him tight after that first word.

Tears filled my eyes as I sat next to him, stunned.

He has worked so hard to be able to identify all of his letters,

And now, as if someone flipped a stitch, he read.

After each new word he read, I would hug him and give him a high 5.

And he would give me the biggest smile he could manage.

I could have never prepared myself for the joy our little surprise baby would bring to my life.

I am so proud of his determination and desire to learn.

I am so thankful to be with him every step of the way!

I love you Collin and I am so proud of you!
