One of my favorite traditions from my hubbies side of the family comes from his Grandpa Poppy. The night before hubs Birthday, Poppy would call and say, “Goodnight little (whatever age he was at the time) year old.” The next morning, Poppy would call again and say, “Good morning little (whatever age he just turned) year old.” Poppy continued the calls every year, even when hubby was in college, and when we moved away. There was not one birthday he missed. Hubs could not wait for the call each night before his birthday, and then again in the next morning. I had hoped always hoped that he was going to carry on this tradition for our own little one, but was not sure.
This evening I was giving Baybah his bedtime bottle when hubby came in recording with his video camera. He then said, “Goodnight my little 11 month year old.” Tears started to stream down my face as I thought about Poppy and what a special day tomorrow will be. Our little Baybah is turning one! Hubs has the camera ready to record again tomorrow morning when the little guy wakes up. I am so happy that my husband is carrying on that tradition! I hope that it is as special for Baybah as it was for my husband.
Goodnight our Little 1 Year Old– 2nd Birthday
