My sweet little baby is gone. He has morphed into a full-fledged toddler, so full of life and energy. It has been such a joy and pleasure to watch you grow, learn and explore. You amaze me with your never-ending enthusiasim for life and all it has to offer. I love watching you learn and how determined (some might say stubborn) you can be to figure things out. I love how you grab me by the hand and say “Come with!” and pull me to where you want to go. As busy as you are, you always find time to sit and cuddle with me. I hope that you will always do that no matter how big you get. I so look forward to what this next year will bring. Happy Birthday, Joseph William, you are my shining star. Mommy loves you so very much.
I’m two, I’m two, I’m two years old today! That’s so much more than one! Hurray! ! This past year I have grown from a baby into a full blown toddler. I have learned to do so much this year. I learned how to walk -and run!- count to twenty, know my ABCs, colors, how to use a fork and spoon. . . so many things I can do! Mommy and Daddy can’t get over how big I am. I’M GI-NORMOUS!
