A Poem for Baby Sam

Samuel, my sweet baby boy,
You've brought me so much joy!
You're perfect in every single way,
I just want to hug and squeeze you every hour of every day.
Sometimes you drive me crazy but I miss you if for five minutes I'm away!

My sweet, perfect little boy,
Te Adoro
Eres mi gran tesoro, para mi vales mil veces más que el oro.
I never want to think of you being far away,
I hope that near me forever you will stay,
But I know that's not life's typical plan,
One day you'll go off and become your own man.

However I hope you don't stray too far and even if you do that you never have to drown your sorrows in a bar.
May joy and peace and wisdom illuminate your path,
Another slightly silly wish I have for you is that you'll be good at math!
People that are good at math can write their own ticket, but even if you're not one of them I know you'll be fine and even if sometimes you don't feel fine you'll always be mine.

I feel honored the Universe chose me to be you…

    So remember this next time a perfect stranger asks you when you're due or what you're having, or when the 60-something-year-old-lady that cleans your office comments on your gravid state at least twice a day, always with a sweet smile on her face, or when the lady at the gas station nicely reminds you caffeine isn't good for the baby as you attempt to buy a latte on the go.

    Let these women live vicariously through you for a few moments out of their day and yours.
    At the moment it may seem annoying but later you'll understand and you'll be the one trying not to go, "Ohhh, I remember when I was pregnant," with a giddy smile on your face whenever you see a delightfully round belly cross your pa…
