I'm not sure where the time has gone, but my little tiny baby is all of a sudden 2 years old today. How did this happen?
Baby boy, you amaze me every day. Language acquisition is a joy...and a frustration as I try to figure out what a word is since it very rarely is correctly pronounced. But there are new ones every day. I have to say, I'm not a fan of "want" but I'm guessing it's good you can at least verbalize that. You may have walked late, but you took no time in transitioning that to running and you have no fear. None. You take off after strangers because they interest you. You climb, jump off of things, and run headlong into walls, corners, tables...you name it. There aren't many days that go by that you don't acquire new bruises on your legs, arms, HEAD, and last week you got your first black eye. It took me 27 years to do that! You greet me when I come home as though you haven't seen me in days. You spend time every day giving me hugs around the neck that make me melt. And you infuriate me just as often by throwing, hitting, and otherwise being destructive. You've been balls to the wall from day 1 my little guy, and I know you will continue to keep me on my toes. Soon you'll be a big brother, and I can't wait to see how you handle that, and how you teach your brother to be like you. I am so lucky to be your mom. I love you.
You, in retrospect!
