Today is your second birthday and I can’t think of a more special boy to have a special day. You have continued to be our angel baby even though you are rapidly becomming a boy. Rest assured you will always be my baby though.
You have the funniest spirit and love to tell “jokes”. Usually involving spinning around or peek a boo but you always do the best belly laugh after entertaining us. Your smile radiates and we can’t help but smile when we see your sweet face.
On the other side of things your favorite phrase is LET GO! Said in a loud and gritting voice. It started as a way for you to command toys from your brother or cousins but now also includes any time you don’t want to be stopped from doing whatever your latest escapade is. I’d like to say that I do a good job reprimanding you for it, but to tell you the truth it cracks me up everytime you try to command us around. Even your brother can’t help but give in to your whims.
Everyone remarks just how much you look like your Daddy. This thrills me to no end not only because you and he have the exact same dimple but also because your spirit is just like his. Calm, easygoing and loveable even in the roughest times. But also like your Daddy while you love intensely you are also intensely determined no matter what task is at hand.
I sing to you often and just a week ago you started singing back. You run up to me hold your arms up and say “babbbeeee, babbeeee” just like I sing Mama’s baby to you. I was even more surpised when we heard this song and suddenly you started singing babeeee babeeee right after Alicia Keys. You also give a great rendition of we will rock you.
Your stong but carefree spirit is something that has taught me so much. The last half of your second year we’ve been through quite a bit- a new move to Texas, losing a house, selling a house and finding a new one but through it all nothing is as important as singing and dancing and loving every minute of life we’ve been blessed with.
Happy birthday my sweet angel baby,your birth was one of the best days of my life thank you for teaching us just how beautiful love can be.
