2 years ago...
Two years ago today, Colton was born. What a little stranger he was to me. I knew nothing about him and had no idea how to take care of him. I remember that first night in the hospital...I was sleeping...I remember hearing a noise and thinking, "what in the world is that?" Once I fully woke up, I realized it was MY baby, crying. I was terrified. "What in the world am I supposed to do with a crying baby? That's MY crying baby."
It's interesting to think of this little stranger. Now, 2 years later...I know every little thing about him. I know exactly where his freckles are. I know what reaction he is going to give in any given situation. I know his strengths, his tendencies, his fears. Mike put it well the other day, "it's like you two are a little married couple." We have our little routine, stick to it, and love it. He comes to me for comfort, I come to him for snuggles.
He's the best little buddy. I would choose him out of anything in the world. Happy 2nd birthday to my best little friend. We love you Colton!
