To Cohen, Love Mommy

Dear Sweet, Cohen,
 You are such an amazing child! You are so full of life and energy. You have the kindest heart, and always want to please everyone. You love giving hugs and kisses. Since you were a baby we have been constantly told by friends and teachers how loving and sweet you are.
We pray every night that we will raise you to love Jesus, and that you will be full of health and happiness.
You love your Nana, Mimi, and Aunt Lora and ask about each of them often. You love your brother so much. Anytime we get in the car and you don't see Sutton in his seat you say, "Susson?!" You kiss him and give him his paci several times per day. You share everything with him, you even try to get him to drink out of your cup.
You have the cutest walk. You kind of sway when you walk, and you often walk with your hands clasped in front of you. When we ask you to bow your head to say prayers, you instead put your hand on your head. You love your "hootie," your doggy, and your paci at bedtime. You love reading books and having us read books to you. You love "Muddypaws" and the nursery rhyme books the best right now. You still use sign-language when you get really excited. You sign and say, "please, and more" at the same time when you really want something.
You are so sensitive. When you get in trouble, you cover your eyes and pout. When you have to say you're "sorry" you also stroke the arm or cheek of who you offended.
You have the sweetest, most beautiful eyes. But those same eyes give such a mean look when you are mad at someone. It is impossible not to laugh.
We are so blessed to have you as our child. We cannot thank our gracious Father enough for choosing us to be your parents. We love watching you learn and grow everyday. We pray that we raise you to be a strong Christian man who loves the Lord and desires to please Him.
We love you more than you will understand until you have your own children someday.
Mommy and Daddy
