Worthy of note...Letters to my boys

Sweet, Sutton Henry,

You are an absolute joy to parent! You are 10 months this week and are such a happy boy. You are always smiling with that big, dimpled smile.  You have 2 bottom teeth, 1 top tooth, and you are getting two more top teeth right now.  That means you have had a slight fever and been waking up at night for a week now.  Even though I am exhausted the next day, I LOVE those middle of the night feedings to soothe you.  I secretly hope you nurse for a few more months. 
You are crawling everywhere, and taking 3-5 steps a few times per day.  I don't want you to walk.  It seems that you are growing so much faster than your brother did. 
You are still very much your Mommy's boy in so many ways. You look like me and always want to be with me.  It is so sweet. You have started to stare at your brother and just watch him with amazement.  You play great by yourself if Cohen isn't around. You eat everything. A typical breakfast for you at 10 months is: a banana, oatmeal, and a yogurt!  You also still nurse 4-5 times per day.
I am traveling a lot with this new job which means I am a warrior pumper:)  I take my pump with me on the road and on the plane.  I am so in love with you. You say "Da-da, Ma-ma, bye-bye." You also fake cough when we cough, and mock any sound that Cohen does. You are such a silly baby.  You make me heart smile all the time with your sweet personality and that wonderful smile.  You can't be without your bear. You have the bear in your teeth or in your hand whenever I go to get you out of your crib. If you wake up crying, I go to get you and you have your bear in  your hand. You hold it all the time. I love it. I made sure we have 4 of them so you will never be without one. You still suck your thumb when you are bored or tired. I always know when you are either of the above because you put your right thumb in your mouth. If I am feeding you and taking too long between bites, you put your thumb in your mouth then move it when the spoon gets to your lips.
I look forward to seeing your personality grow and bloom as you get older.
I pray daily for you. I pray for your health and for you to love God with all your heart.
I love you to the heavens and back!!
