Dear Camden

Dear Camden,

Right now there are so many things about you that I don't want to forget.  Most days, I want to press the pause button and just keep you three and a half years old forever.


Because every day you say, "I like you, Mommy," "I love you, Mommy," and "you are the best Mommy."

Because if given the chance, you take your undies all the way off when using the bathroom and cannot put them back on the correct way.  They always go on backwards.

Because you have a fascination with planets and space and you can name all the planets, in order, without help.

Because you love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles even though you have never seen the show or movie.

Because if you do something that requires an apology, you immediately follow up the apology with "I forgive you."

Because there is no shortage of snuggles, hugs, and kisses.

I love you more than you will ever know, and feel so lucky and proud to be your mommy.

Take Luck,
