I can’t believe your two already. It seems like yesterday that you came into my life. I remember vividly the day I found out I was pregnant, the first time I felt you move, how absolutely beautiful your little tiny face was, the way you smell and still smell when your sleeping. How far you’ve come and how much you’ve grown in such a short amount of time I can barely believe it.
Your so fearless, so full of wonder, so without judgments… you make me wish I had half the view of the world you do. Everyone you meet is a friend until proven otherwise, a game can be found in almost anything, and bugs might as well be tiny diamonds as you think they are amazing, well all but those evil fire ants in the back yard that “bite”. You love your puppies, this crazy show called Yo Gabba Gabba, shoes of all things, and you might as well been born with fins as I can’t keep you away from water.
I have two wishes for you as you grow up. The first of which sounds the simplest but as you get older you will realize just how hard it is… Whatever you decide to do in life do it because its what you want and love not because you ever feel you have to prove anything to anyone. The second is only that you call your Mommy every day, heh, ok once a week to tell her how your week has been. If your as adventurous as an adult as you are as a child your bound to be off doing something somewhere, and I have to admit as much as I want you to experience everything in this world it will be hard not to see your face every day.
I just want you to know that I’ve waited so long for you to be part of my life and every second of that wait was worth it 1 million times over. I could never even have imagined how amazing you would be and how much I would love you. Even on the days where you’ve opened all of my makeup and “colored” the couch and for that flash of a second I tell you I’m half tempted to sell you to gypsys, I’m only joking. Heh. Really It would take an army and an act of god for me to let you out of my sight. Nothing and I do mean nothing is better than hearing you giggle or your incredibly wet kisses.
Here’s to another year little man, just don’t grow up too fast I still have so much to share with you.
Yours forever and always,
