Dear Oliver,
You're 9 months old today which means you've been out in this world for as long as I kept you safe and sound inside of me. And you've still got so much more growing and learning to do on your journey. I hope you'll always feel like you could come to me, and hope you'll always want to- when everything is great or even when it's not. We're journeying together, at least part of the way. I hope you'll be patient with me, I've never had 2 children before, you know? And while you and your brother are wonderful little people you can also be incredibly challenging. Especially when no one's gotten a good night's sleep. And hopefully I can try to be patient too. But you must always remember that I'll love you forever, no matter what.
