("You want me to do what? I can't sit still!")

Dear Plankton,

A year ago today I was feeling you wiggle inside me for the first time.....I could hardly imagine what it would be like to be a mother...how hard and wonderful it would be. During my pregnancy I told daddy that you were FUNNY! he didn't believe me, he also could not figure out how I could know from your kicks and wiggles that you were FUNNY.....but you and I had our little jokes and I swear you were laughing while in my belly. I also knew you were blonde haired and blue eyed. I told Daddy your name would be Jason Jr. Daddy was not too sure but agreed to "see what you looked like before we committed to a name". He also shocked me by asking "what if he is dark haired like you"......I freaked out for two days just thinking about that....it seemed so wrong......

You are not only funny, you are HILARIOUS and you not only LOOK like your daddy but you have his jovial spirit, his ENERGY and his love of making other people smile......

And I have come to know you, not just a little glimpse but really getting to KNOW you......at first you were a stranger to me (so tiny and cranky), motherhood was strange to me......we have come a LONG way in the past six months (15 months really). We are learning to be a family, to work together, play together, BE together.

I look forward to every day with you. As I watch you grow, I know that my heart is growing too. I didn't know if I could really change for you and with you.....you have left me no choice....you are making me into a mother. It's a beautiful and some days painful thing to become. I look forward to watching you and your mate go thru this transformation as well.....

I won't say I have enjoyed every day of the last six months, but they have been AMAZING and I can say that I look forward to the next six.....WE HAVE A PARTY TO PLAN!!!!!

I love you!,
your mamma
