here’s the thing. two years ago this coming friday (STOP MOVING SO FAST TIME!), eleanor was born and my focus, my love, my entire being, it all shifted.  i fell hard for my baby girl and i often wondered as i spent all my moments by her side, how any other baby or child would ever fit into this picture.  i seriously wondered. and i worried, too. but dear samson, you made your entrance into this world in a way that made me feel like from the get-go, you were meant to be here. and every single day, i am more smitten than the last.  you, little mister, are killing it.  and we love you so, it hurts.  thank you for your constant smile, your calm attitude, your bright and beautiful spirit.  i love you.  — mama

    How cute?!?? I love writing messages to my kids. I’ve been doing it a lot lately too– I too felt that there was no way on earth I could make room in my heart for any more babies after my first. the only easy I can explain it when asked is that it’s like a chamber of my heart that I didn’t know existed was unlocked when my next baby came. Plenty of love for all<33

    Oh my! Such a sweet post, and so refreshing to hear that a concern of mine was also a concern of yours. We have one little baby girl right now ( 16 months), and I truly can’t imagine throwing another baby into the mix. I have heard all to often that it is the same great infatuation with the next one though! :) Thanks for sharing!!

    i totally can relate to this, i hesitate to have a second baby because i’m afraid sali (my daughter) would take all the shine. but seeing samson and you and e, definitely changes the views, every baby is shine in their own way.. :)

  12. Wow Taza I just realized you redid your whole blog! I love it! Such an improvement! Keep it up :)
