TODAY you turn TWO YEARS OLD! It feels like just yesterday I was taking you home from the hospital.
It’s amazing how fast time flies by and how much you have grown. You have a HUGE personality and a smile that lights up the room. Not to mention a laugh that’s infectious and melts the heart of anyone in your presence.
You are talking more and more everyday and we all know your favorite word is “Bas-kit-bal” and every dog that walks by is called Brodie after your favorite fluffy pet.
You are a great eater and will try anything put in front of you, including onions. However, we do really need to work on other dinner options besides “nuggies” each night.
You sleep like a rockstar. It doesn’t matter if it’s at daycare on mats, the pack n play at Nannies or in the car on a long drive…you love sleep! However, it’s essential you take no less than 8 blankies to bed with you and you love it when we pile them all on top of you each night.
You love little matchbox cars and already have close to 100 of them around the house. All of your jackets usually have a couple stashed in their pockets. You like looking out the front window at the house and watching cars drive by, saying “vroom vroom” each time. The site of a school bus gets you really excited and the miniature one somehow ends up in your bed every night.
You have the most gorgeous blue eyes. Ever. I was hoping when you were born they wouldn’t change and they have only gotten more beautiful. And those eyelashes! I melt every time I look at them.
You have an adventurous spirit. You love walking in the woods and especially on the little bridges of the trail. Finding sticks to give Brodie makes you happy.
You are a laid back little boy. We can go anywhere with you and you are happy. Probably the only time you are fussy is when you are tired or hungry. You have such a great nature. We are lucky.
You are silly. You’re a pro at making funny faces and making people laugh. You love to laugh uncontrollably.
Your passion for sports is already evident. You can’t have enough balls and nothing makes you happier than daddy taking you outside to play basketball.
You love your dad. Whether he’s left for work or just left the room, you always ask “where dada?”. There’s nothing a big hug from dada can’t fix. You look just like him.
You’re a great dancer. You love to be picked up and swung around the living room. We love your little moves. You’ll be a heartbreaker for sure.
The moon. You are quick to spot it every night. This was also one of your first words. It’s the first thing you look for when we go outside. Moon? Moon? Da Moon!
A lot has changed over the last year but probably the biggest change has been the arrival of your little sister. You still aren’t too sure what she’s all about but you do enjoy checking up on her. You are already trying to make her laugh. You don’t know it yet but you will share so many wonderful memories with her. Later in life you will share a special relationship with her. I look forward to watching you both grow.
I am so proud of you. I can’t wait to see you ride a bike for the first time. I can’t wait to witness the many first that lie ahead. You will always be my baby boy no matter how old you turn. I can say with a full heart that I have loved watching you grow.
