I can’t believe you are already 2 years old! I know you’ll probably get tired of hearing it, but I remember the day you were born like it was just yesterday. We were so excited to get to finally meet you and hold you after waiting for you for some long! It seems like my whole life I was just preparing to be your mom!
You are an amazing little boy! Everyday you make us laugh! You have such a great sense of humor and you can be so silly! There are times that your strong will drives us crazy, but we know that one day that will be one of your very best assets! (But I promise it really wouldn’t kill you to eat something other than corn dogs and beans once in awhile!)
We were so worried that when we had Turk that you might not adjust well, but we underestimated how big your heart is and how loving you can be! You have been just the best big brother anyone could ask for, and Turk is lucky to have you! You do your very best to take care of “Be Be Doe.” He giggles whenever you are around. I smile every time I see you grab his little hand and kiss it, or when you pat him on the head and tell him not to cry.
You are SO smart! You love learning new words and love when you are able to communicate with us! Tree, bike, birds, drink, snack, “Brodies” and or course Dad, G (Eldest) and E (Deuce) are some of your favorites! You took long enough to say “Mom”, but it’s still one of my favorite words to hear!
You are fearless. You race down the stairs at our new house at Warp Speed. You can be out the door and to your bike before we know what hit us! You jump into the air with your eyes shut and a huge grin pasted on your face because you trust we will be there to catch you. (We always will be there to catch you by the way!)
I love you so much. Everyday when I wake up and you are in bed with us (something we really need to work on by the way) I am amazed that God thought I was worthy to be your mom!
You challenge me. At every step, you challenge me. You challenge me not to grin when you are being rotten, or when it’s really time for bed, or to come inside. You challenge me. You challenge me to be a better person, to be a better example for you. You challenge me! But I hope you never stop flinging yourself into my arms, eyes shut, and grinning, knowing that I’ll be there to catch you.
