Spinkles, Mommy!

Dear Noah,

Happy Birthday to you!  Today you are TWO!  TWO!  I can hardly believe it.  At two, you are:  funny (SO funny), dramatic, spirited, joyous, energetic, talkative, demanding, gentle, and most days, kind.  You have such a way with words...a vocabulary and understanding I didn't anticipate at two years old.  You are my little parrot, repeating everything I say, and I do mean EVERYTHING.  Your new favorite phrase is "Peee Ewww, Mommy! Noah stinky feet!" which is kind of true most days. 

These past couple of months have been tough on you.  I went back to work and you started at daycare at Miss S's house.  We've had a few rough days adjusting to our new routines but we're getting there.  You love your new friends at Miss S's and ask for them every morning when you wake up.  I love that you love to be there...knowing you're happy makes being away from you a little easier.  In truth, I have had a harder time leaving you than you have had being away from me.  I'm so pleased you're an adaptable little fellow.  Now I just need to learn from you.

Thank you, Noah, for continuously teaching us how to be better parents.  We have been entrusted with the greatest responsibility in raising you and we're so proud of the little boy you're becoming.  

You are the brightest part of my day.  I'm so excited to see what the next years have in store for us, for our little family.

Happy 2nd Birthday my love.

Precious. And your hair? Looks awesome! I know that's not really the point of this post but I felt like I should mention it. Ok - back to Noah. Still precious.

A.) my sister's baby just had his first birthday party, and it's so amazing how different kids look from age 1 to age 2.

B.) You are absolutely gorgeous! I love your hair!

C.) I hope that when the time comes, we can find a place for our babe to go, and that she LOVES it! I dread that day ... I'm sure it's a tough adjustment for you.
