A Birthday Letter Tradition: Happy 4th Birthday N!

N Turned 4 in October! Keeping with tradition, I wrote N his annual birthday letter like I did at one yeartwo years and three years. I wrote it a few weeks before his birthday and before the arrival of his little brother. I hope you enjoy this year’s letter!

A Birthday Letter Tradition: N Turns 3

My baby turned 3 last week! I know I sound like a broken record (try hearing it inside my head…it’s even worse!), but this time is going so, SO fast.

Also keeping with tradition, I wrote N his annual birthday letter like I did here and here Continue reading

N’s Picture Project

On Tuesday, I shared A Letter to My Son on His 2nd Birthday. These annual letters have become an important tradition to me.

I hang them up every year at N’s birthday party. Our guests love looking at how he’s changed over the year.

A Letter to My 2 Year Old on His Birthday

N turned two on October 15. For those of you saying, “Two already?!?” Yes, yes, he’s two already. Earlier this year, I shared A Letter to My 1 Year Old on His Birthday. This is a tradition I started in the journal I kept during my pregnancy with N and I plan to write N a letter on his birthday each year. I hope you enjoy this year’s letter to my little monkey!

Monkey,

Another year has flown by! And you are turning two today!
