A Deedle Christmas Past

Little monster, this was your very first Christmas.

Last year, I was big and round...
belly patting and dreaming of you...
little Deedle.

Even as I thought about how you would look, whether you would be a boy or a girl, when you would arrive, how you would feel in my arms...
I could not even imagine today...
you opening and inspecting your presents.

We knew that you would be here, and was so excited to think that our next Christmas would be us...
 as a family of three.  

We knew it would be amazing and special...
We had no idea.

You are more than I could have ever imagined...
more amazing than I thought existed...
and you have brought more joy and love to us than we even knew to be.

You have been the best present.
Way more than we dreamed...
 Merry Christmas Deedle Monster...
we love you.
