FC: ALex wright's 2nd year

1: love | bug | You are one. One whole wonderful, crazy, stressful, amazing year it has been. One year ago today the doctor placed your pink, crying, perfect little self on my chest and that was it. I was a mom. Just like that. Our hearts were linked forever. I dreamed of being a mother from the time I could walk and talk. I dreamed of you my entire life: playing with dolls and pretending they were real, scribbling baby names I liked in my journal and closing my eyes so tight trying to catch a glimpse of what my real baby would look like someday. And now that you are here, you have blown every dream and fantasy of mine right out of the water. You are so much more than I could ever have dreamed of. You are perfect and so perfectly Alex. Your crazy cute facial expressions can make anyone smile. Your sweet, tender, love bug side that is thrilled to give kisses and hugs. Your Lil’ monster, mind of your own side that kicks, screams and haulks out when you don't get your way. You have changed all of our lives forever. In twelve little months, you have sealed your place in our hearts forever. Twelve months of rocking, bouncing, patting, singing your fussy little self to sleep. Twelve months of smiling at your giggle, your toothy smile, your quirks. Watching you grow and change and learn every day is the gift of a lifetime. I can't wait to see the little boy you become. And someday, the man you will become. I love you to the moon. -Mommy

26: Topsail Island 2010

27: Oh does my boy love the beach! As soon as we walked on to the balcony at our beach house, you pursed your lips and yelled, "ooooh!" at the sight of the ocean! It was amazing that you had no clue what the ocean was, but already knew it was exciting! The first hour you were on the beach you were a little hesitant, but after that, you never looked back! You loved the sand and the shells! You even were brave and ran right out into the waves. My little explorer scoured the beach for shells every day. You would be so excited each time you discovered a shell, although you would usually through it back in the water. Daddy and I would even take you back to the beach each night before bed because you loved it so much. As we drove away as the week ended, I had tears in my eyes knowing we were leaving a place that made you so happy.

32: We had such fun times at the zoo this summer! We went to the Akron Zoo several times and we also went to the Columbus Zoo! Your favorite animal at the zoo were the penguins. You also loved the manatees! We had so much fun with our family watching you discover all the animals!

38: I carry your heart; I carry it in my heart. -E. E. Cummings | Mama | and | Me | Man do I love you kid! My little punkin. This summer has been such a blessing for me. I savor every second that I get to spend with you. I am amazed at how smart, fun and loving you are. You can make me so mad, and with one shy smile, my heart completely melts. Its hard to watch you become a boy, and see my baby slipping away. I am so proud to watch you grow and learn everyday.You have a hold on my heart that makes me want to drop everything just to be where you are.

40: Asher Paul 20 months

41: This month we found out that you are going to be a big brother! How exciting! This news is perfect timing because you are obsessed with babies right now! Every animal or baby you see you say, "Baby..Where's the Mama? Where's the Dada? Where's the Nana? Where's the Papa?"Its is so funny to see you try and find a little family everywhere you look. You probably do this ten times a day! Words cannot describe how thrilled we are to have another miracle like you in our lives. You have changed us for the better, forever. Not only did you make us parents, but you have molded us into the kind of parents we want to be. I am so happy for you to have a sibling to share, love, play and even fight with. While I am thrilled, a tiny part of me feels guilty to take some of our attention away from you. I know in my heart that we are giving you the greatest gift and that this baby will fill a hole in our hearts and our family that we never knew existed. I am so proud of the little boy that you are becoming. My heart hurts every time I see little bits of your babyhood slip away. I know that you will be the most compassionate and loving big brother. I can't wait to see where God takes our family and cannot wait for you to meet your baby brother or sister. I love you to the moon, my sweet boy, Mommy | Asher

42: Moreland Fruit Farm October 2010

43: We went to the Moreland Fruit Farm with Uncle Josh, Aunt Julie, Bradyn and Parker. We had a blast! You didn't do much apple picking, but you did your fair share of munching on the apples! You had so much fun running wild with the other boys! You helped Mommy pick out mums and even got to see a tractor!

44: ALL BUNDLED UP | you don't exactly LOVE the snow! This was your very first time out in the snow and you were absolutely terrified! I just laugh because it is so your personality to be afraid of the snow. On one hand you are wild and brave, but you are also very timid and scared of everything! I guess you get that from me! Maybe next year we can build snowmen and make snow angels!

46: This fall you love to play in the leaves! You absolutely adore being outside. You love the crunching sound the autumn leaves make when you walk on them in your boots. Raking leaves with Daddy is so fun!

47: [AUTUMN] | 2010

49: Story time is one of our favorite times. I love reading stories in our jammies when you're all clean and smelling of sweet baby lotion. Now that you have a big boy bed, we read stories in your bed every night. Your favorites are: "Can you Growl like a Bear?" "No, David" and "Goodnight Moon." You are so silly that you even copy the little boy in "No, David" when he puts his finger in his nose! Silly boy!

57: We took you to Build-a-Bear for your birthday! You were more interested in the buttons on the wall rather than making a stuffed animal! I think Mommy had more fun! But that's ok! You warmed up and gave your monkey a bath and had a good time!

59: 2 | Asher, Your second birthday was so much fun! We had cake and ice cream with Daddy's family, and then had a party and Nana's house. Your favorite part by far was blowing out your candles! Each time you would beg me to let you blow them out again...and of course I let you! You had fun opening gifts and playing with your cousins. I cannot believe how big you are getting. We love you to pieces!

69: You are two. Two just seems so big to me. The day you were first placed into my arms, I felt like two was a million miles away. But here we are. Before I had kids, I felt like a two-year old was a kid. But today I very much feel that you are still my baby. This past year I cannot believe how much you have grown and how much you have learned. Your little personality is changing everyday. Your personality is a perfectly Asher blend of sweet, bossy, timid and smart, with plenty of ornery in there too. You are a little boss who loves to run the show. If you could, you would tell everyone what to do at all times. You are just like Mommy and are afraid of everything. You are even scared of a baby bunny. You have learned so much this year. You are talking in full sentences and picking up new things every hour. Sometimes you can be a little bully who loves to take toys from your friends. We are working on that! But at the end of the day, all the parts of you are perfect in our eyes, because they are you..and you are ours. I have always dreamed of being a mother and what it would be like. When you were born, you turned so many of the ideas I had about motherhood upside down. I thought I knew everything, but having a fussy baby and a challenging toddler quickly taught me that I knew nothing about how hard it is to be a mom. I thought I knew how much I would love my baby. But you turned that upside down too. On the day you were born, I was head over heels. Twenty-four months later, my love for you multiplies every day. Seeing parts of Daddy and myself in you makes my heart swell. Watching you struggle with something, or seeing you sick tugs at my heart strings. Hearing you say "Mom" ten million times a day makes me smile. We are so proud to be your parents. We cannot wait to see how you adjust to being a big brother. The last year has been trying as we struggled with your health concerns. We were given a new-found sense of appreciation for each day we spend with you, and our goal as parents is to live in the moment and enjoy every second with you...the fun moments, the scary moments and even the challenging ones. We love you more than you can know and it grows every day. We are so blessed that you are ours. Love you to the moon, Mommy | Asher,
