18 months…. HAHA, just kidding 22 months

18 months

So much time has passed. But also, not really. Kobe is now 22 months and he is a spit fire! He is so busy, but mainly he’s just trying to keep up with the bigs. Being the youngest bro and the second youngest cousin, he’s running hard to keep up and do all the things!

These bring us to today!! Kobe is quite hilarious. We often reflect back to his infant stages and how we called him and Serious. He was… well, a little dull, unresponsive, and certainly an major observer. As he’s grown his personality has exploded. He’s certainly not reckless or careless- but I would for sure say he is curious, fearless, and rarely ever stops. He is brave, and often wants to try the more adventurous and sometimes “dangerous” (ok, dangerous to me! Haha) experiences. Comparatively, big bro bro is quite cautious. But if you throw them in certain situations, they can be total flopped and we are once again surprised!

Dear Kobe,

You absolutely melt me. You’re wild and fun spirit remains fully intact and your desire for “dude” time is at an all time high and your preference over then men in your life (dad and bro bro, mostly) is… well, adorable. But sometimes I want that mamas boy back! Someday!! 💜

Your mind is brilliant. You are insanely smart, curious, independent, and unafraid. These are amazing qualities to have and I hope that you continue in your curiosity and deep love for people and family and the outdoors.

You have shown me grace upon grace and taught me so so much about love, parenting, acceptance… and how to stop having mini-heart attacks all day long and trust that you know your capacity- usually! Haha!

You are so so treasured kiddo.

We love you,

Mama
