An Open Letter to Ukiah

Ukiah,

My second born, my free spirit. I was so afraid when I found out I was pregnant with you, I didn’t think it was possible to love another person as much as I love your brother and that scared me but then you came and all of those fears were immediately replaced with love. Watching you imagination work is an adventure, like your brother your creativity is inspiring. You’re so smart maybe even too smart for your own good and that gets you into trouble from time to time but you never cease to amaze me. You have such a fiery little personality but I think you balance that out with how caring you are and I hope you never lose that. You are always there for your brother and even though you are younger you always look out for him. I was worried how you would be once your sister came but you’ve pretty much been nailing the big brother thing too. From the time you started talking you’ve told me you want to grow up and be a doctor to kids in the hospital. It will be amazing to watch you go down that path of your mind doesn’t change over the years. Whatever it is you choose to be when you grow up I know you’ll be great.

I love you,

Ashley/mom (yes he calls me by my first name)
