What A Trooper

Dear Davis,
I can't begin to tell you how proud mommy is of you right now. We've packed up, and moved you around so much lately that you are becoming a pro. Not that that is anything to be proud of. But you are being such a big boy about it, and I couldn't be more proud of you. I know you're confused, and you have no clue what is going on. I try and tell you everyday that Houston is our new home. That this apartment is where we will be for the next month. And that we are finally moving back into a house! You look at me with your little raised eyebrow and just say, home? Yes, baby. We are going to have a home. I know this is a lot to take in right now, and it's okay. It's been a lot on everyone. You do such a great job of smiling, and helping mommy smile, too. You have been asking me several times when we are going home. It makes my heart hurt a little, because I know you are so confused. The first time you asked me, I tried not to cry because it took me by such surprise. Then I wonder if you want to go back to our last apartment, because you actually seemed to hate that place. (Well, as did we all)

Little man, just know that things are going to be back to normal in no time. And you have my word on this. You are getting so big, and you amaze me more and more everyday. Just today, you went with me to look at a new Mother's Day Out program, and jumped right in to start playing with the other kids. It was a proud moment for mommy, as I watched you fit right in. You are becoming so independent, and learning so much, so fast. You have even begun potty training. You get so excited, and run across the room to show daddy or I what you've done. Such a big boy!!

Tomorrow, you get to go see our new house for the first time. I'm going to try to take you by there as much as possible, so you can get used to seeing it.'s mommy and daddy approved, so I'm pretty sure you'll think it's  awesome!

Davis, you are one amazing little man, and I am so proud to be your mommy. You melt my heart, make me laugh, and you have made this moving process so much easier being the trooper that you are. I love you, monkey.
Look at that cool kid, in his cool shades!!

What a sweet letter to your boy. Kids are more resilient than we give them credit for, trust me this whole thing is harder on you than it is him!
