Reid,

Today I received another well baby report from your doctor in Korea.  You are growing so quickly.  At 13 months old you are 31 inches long and weigh 23 pounds.  You are not far behind your peanut of a big sister.  Sweet baby boy, you are across the world from me, but I’m most certainly your mommy.  My heart swelled with pride as I read that you are walking, talking, throwing balls, playing patty cake, and peek a boo.  However, I wish it were me telling the doctor all that you can do, comforting you after your shots, telling you that you will be ok.  I wish it were me hearing your giggles and getting your good morning snuggles. I wish it were me you called “Mommy”.  Oh my sweet boy. Oh how I wish it were me.
