was the day my life changed forever.
i became an aunt to the most incredible little nugget in the world,
colton alexander.

dear colton, 
from day one, you had my heart. 
i promise to answer any question you ask me
and teach you some of life's most important lessons...
like God and how to make a hard boiled egg. 

someday, i'll teach you my dance moves that will surely 
continue to be the life of parties. 
i'll teach you how to play nothin' but a hound dog
on the guitar. or maybe i'll just buy you guitar lessons?

its true, i'm your godmother and it makes my heart 
so incredibly full to know i'm a part of your special life.

i never would've imagined the feelings a person can experience
when watching the two loves of their life
love each other so much. 
you and your uncle john adore each other.
but whatever you do, don't ever let your uncle john be
responsible for any keys. you'll find out why when you're older.

c, this is your last birthday as an only child.
you are going to be the best big brother come july.
i pray and hope you will be the type of big sibling
to your new brother or sister as your mama has been to me.

ohh little precious boy. 
you are hilarious and make us laugh all the time.
you are talking up a storm and make full sentences
and never, ever cease to amaze me.

c- i am sorry that you inherited my biting when frustrated trait. 
from experience, i know you'll grow out of the biting phase
by the time you have your drivers license. 
unfortunately, like me, you'll never grow out 
of hating the feeling of grass. it's itchy, i know.

you are the absolute light of the family and such an incredible baby. 

my eyes fill with tears and my heart fills with excitement
when i think about the journey ahead of you
and how blessed i am to watch you grow. 

i hope you don't mind, i hope you don't mind
that i put down in words
how wonderful life is while you're in the world.

i love you more than you'll ever, ever know. 

love - captain. nayme.
