My sweet Weston Cole,
My baby boy.
My little look alike.
I've always known you would be our middle child, and so I've made myself aware and intentional about making you feel wanted and just as loved as your older brother and soon to be little sister.
It's not an easy role.
I've been there.
And as much as I want to protect you from ever feeling those "middle child feelings" I'm afraid all I have are words that I hope you will believe.
I was the second girl in my family and a baby brother was born after me.
There is always a lot of attention from others centered around a new baby but I think even more so when that baby is a different gender.
I hope you never feel that from your mom and dad though.
You are so important to us
So many families are blessed with a boy and girl, but your dad and I always considered you our bonus baby.
We got you right in the middle and at just the right time in our lives, and we couldn't feel more thankful.
You shine and hold your own.
You don't allow us to let your needs go unnoticed but you are sweet and sensitive and the most cuddly little boy.
At 2.5 years old I'm in no hurry to see you grow up and so I let you carry your two blankets around the house and suck on your fingers.
You'll always be my baby boy.
