You know that you are 2 today - you've told me for a week now that you will be "twooooo" on "daturday" - constantly reminding your Momma that you aren't a baby anymore. You've never wanted to be a baby (except when it comes to snuggling up to your Momma) you've done everything early - walked, talked, potty-ed - all of it. You're a chatter box - you're smart, so smart - you know your ABC's and count to 10, you love to sing You Are My Sunshine, and you know a blue marlin when you see one (a dream come true for your Daddy). You love books - there haven't been enough written yet as far as your concerned. You know your manners - I'm always proud to hear you say yes ma'am or yes sir. And I can promise you that when you are big enough you'll be holding doors for girls and offering to carry heavy things for anyone else who can't. I will see to it that chivalry is never lost on you.
You have such a big heart. It's a good heart full of love. I love when you
Your a comedian - you have a silly face like no other. Your laughter can fill a room in an instant and fills everyone that's around you. It fills your Momma and Daddy's hearts and I never want to go a day in my life without your giggles. Everything is funny - if it's not, you'll make it funny. You love to dance (you won't make a career of it but you'll entertain many a wedding reception I'm sure), you love music, you always want "anoder song." And when you do your "happy dance" I'm always certain there is a song in your heart.
We check your room for monsters - the closet, under the bed, in the drawers. Then we check your room for sharks - the closet, under the bed, in the drawers. Every.Night. And sometimes you still wonder into to bed with us in wee hours of the morning mumbling about sharks and monsters. But your sweet snuggles are always welcomed, even in the middle of the night. I love to find you face to face with me when I wake up ready to say good morning and start your day. You love trucks, dump trucks, big trucks, any truck, and planes - anything that flies, and trains - Thomas and his friends have preformed several hostile take overs of the house because of your love for them. At the moment though, there is only one Lightning McQueen - books, cars, movies - your in little boy heaven! You have the best imagination, you always amaze us with the things you come up with.
I think if we put your bed outside that you'd live there. You love all things dirt, plants, and animals. And there just aren't enough bike rides, wagon walks, swings, and balls to be hit for a little boy like you. Your knees are always scraped and bruised, your fearless, sometimes a little too fearless for your Momma. You are the greatest blessing to your Momma and Daddy, we are thankful everyday for the gift we were given in you, and we love you with more love than hearts can hold.
Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
