Two years old. TWO. On one hand it feels like you've been in our lives forever, on the other it's like we just brought you home. So small and squishy. I thought nothing could surpass the huge changes between birth and year one until I experienced year two. Holy cow! You've gone from a baby who could barely walk and talk to a full blown little boy who practically runs circles around me and never stops talking! You are so smart, I can't believe some of the things you say and do. You make me so proud to be your mama. You amaze me more and more every day. In true toddler fashion you're definitely testing your limits and can make mama laugh and cry all in the same minute. While your stubbornness and strong willed personality push me, your sweet heart and infectious laugh melt me into a puddle of mush. You're such a mamas boy. Part of me hopes you stay that way forever. The way you light up and come running when I pick you up from school. The way you come up to me and say "hugs mama, hugs" or ask for a kiss when you have boo-boo. And the way you still snuggle in your spot on my shoulder every night before bed like you have since the day you were born. If I could bottle those moments up forever I would. I can't wait to see what this next year brings. I just know it's gonna be great!
Love you to the moon and back.
Happy Birthday Bubbaloo!
