The Lettuces: TWO

The Lettuces: TWO

NOTE: This post was originally published on Instagram. I am reposting and backdating it here as part of a historical series in order to preserve these meaningful memories and early motherhood thoughts and experiences in a way that is not tied to any social media platform. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time. As we formally shelter in place in NYC, this project brings me happiness and a welcome break from the news. 🖤

On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.”

❤️❤️ TWO ❤️❤️

Javi, there are no words that can express how much I love and adore you and there are no limits to what you can do and be. You amaze me every single day. You are joy and charm and intelligence and curiosity and sweetness wrapped up in the cutest most stylish little package. Witnessing you become you-er is the highlight of my life. Your birth two years ago did not go as planned, but you were the greatest gift ever planned for me.

Happy second birthday, my babe!!!! Wishing you all your wishes now and forever.
