Lucky for you, little one, this week, your sister is gone to Cuba with Papi, so for the first time in your life, it’s all about you. How sad is that? For the first time in your life, you get all the attention. I guess that comes with the territory of being the second child, but when I stop to think about it, it makes me so sad. I think of all the wonderful memories that Papi and I got to have with Anissa by herself, but all you’ve ever known is sharing the attention. I’m sure it’ll make you better at sharing the spotlight in the future, and you’ll be more independent than you would have as a first or only child, but I do feel guilty that we’ve never had this time alone.
But, this week it’s just me and you, my boy!! So far, you are absolutely loving it! We’ve hung out with Nana and the Tito and Tia Maddie, we’ve gone to lunch together, and we’ve had time to just laugh and cuddle together. As I’ve seen you alone and gotten to really pay attention to your characteristics, it’s crazy to me how much you are like your sister. Your cries are the same, your laughs are the same, and you make so many of the same faces that she does. I absolutely love getting to see your little personality shine when it’s not overshadowed by a boisterous 2 1/2-year-old 🙂 You’ve started saying “go”, making dog noises, and have cut two teeth this week! Big week!
As if you weren’t already a mama’s boy enough, my little one, we are growing even closer this week. You are my little partner in crime, and our time together has been so so sweet. Let’s do this more often, okay love? I love you so much, my little Teen-Teen! MUAH!
