2 Years - 24 Months - 731 Days

2 weeks before your 2nd birthday. What a difference 2 years makes!

My Sweet Boy
I'm not sure how we got to this point so quickly.  It seems like we were just finding out about your existence and then before we knew it you were here.  Making you appearance into our life and making sure we knew that your were here to keep us on our toes.  I know time at all you were crawling and smiling and eating food and then before we knew you were 1 and walking.  Once you started walking it was all over and you were in to everything.  Then you were talking and and putting sounds and words together so that you could actually communicate with us.

Now today on this your 2nd Birthday I'm still not sure how we got here so quickly.  24 months, 731 days it just doesn't seem possible.  I know I've said this every month since you were born but really it just doesn't seem possible.  I see you changing and becoming a little boy and I wonder what from this time in your life will you carry with you into boyhood and beyond.  Will you remember how you always had some kind of ball in your hand including when you went to bed?  Or how about how just about everything and anything was a guitar or a drum.  You love to dance and music is the first thing you normally ask for when we walk through the door in the afternoon, you get that from Daddy and I and we get it from our parents music is part of us.  Unless your sick your an eater and you LOVE your fruits and veggies, which makes Momma very happy.

This next year will bring big changes for you. Moving to a toddler bed, potty training and getting a new brother/sister.  You'll continue to grow and change and I'll continue to be amazed at the little man you're becoming.  Each year as you get older you'll learn that Momma is a big sap when it comes to you and your brothers/sisters because you are each the most precious gift God could have ever given me.  To be made your Momma has probably been the single biggest accomplishment in my life, and I've done a lot of great things, and I will forever be grateful for the chance to shape you, love you and watch you grow into a man.

Welcome to the world!
Momma meeting her boy for the first time.

Daddy and his boy in recovery, waiting on Momma.

Happy 2nd Birthday my Sweet Boy!
