Happy 2 Year Old Boy

I can't believe my youngest is two. It sounds so cliche' but I really don't know where 2 years have gone. Little one, you are my giggle guy, my easy sleeper. You have few words but communicate so easily. You LOVE to say my name and your hugs and kisses are hypnotically sweet. You have an uncanny way to brighten any sour mood and I relish coming home to hear you run to me, from anywhere in the house, while singing my name. You are patient with your brother, who isn't always the same with you. You are fiercely independent and think that anything your big, 5 year old brother can do, you can too. You make total strangers smile as you emphatically wave and say "Bye" to anyone you see. You easily make a game out of any small task and you adore washing your hands and wiping the table. It's hard for me to believe that just 9 months ago you were learning to walk. Now, I can't get you to stand still. 9 months before that you were just learning to crawl. Who knows where you will be 9 months from now. You never cease to amaze me. Your disposition is beautiful and I hope you continue to infect everyone with your gorgeous smile and your outrageously sweet laugh! I feel so lucky to have you in my life. I can only hope I steer you towards all the skills you need to stay so happy and peaceful.
I love you my sweet...Mom.

I love that one of him pulling the wagon... Cliches are cliches for a reason.

Maya said...

Thank you...each and every one of you. You spur me on to write and post more frequently and with even more thought. Thank you.

Such a sweet face to match his sweet personality. What a big boy! Is it his birthday?

The second years flew by as quickly as the first...time moved at a much more managable pace before the birth of my daughter. Some days fly by so fast that it feels like I just snuggled her as I picked her up and I'm snuggling her to go to sleep. You've written a beautiful story for your son. You inspired me to write one for my sweet girl who will be 2 this Friday. Thanks for sharing with us.

I know you can hear me... said...

What gorgeous shots...to go along with your beautiful words! He is a lucky boy!

Yahoo! You're back, your little guy is 2, and happy, happy Monday!

I love the pics - after our big 2nd birthday bash I have started to really see how big A. is...it happens overnight, I swear.

Hope his Birthday is great. And a sweet story, too.
