My dear sweet Elliott,
Today you are two. You are my sweet sweet boy. You are so happy, so loving, so kind…except when you’re being 2, and then you are a spitfire. You love your sisters and brother, love your Mama and Daddy and love your friends.
You love to sing. Your favorites are Hourglass, Golden Slumbers, Firework, and anything from Tangled. You definitely play with Libby the most, because you know the names of all the ponies from My Little Pony, you love all Princesses and you like to wear headbands.
Today you woke up so happy. Seth came into my room and you lifted your arms and left with him. What you played I’m not sure, I was sleeping blissfully. It wasn’t until Seth brought you back to my room only to leave and shut the door did I realize why. That is when you informed me that you pooped. After a diaper change, I gave you your favorite breakfast treat – Pop Tarts. Yep, I’m an awesome Mom. Don’t ever forget that you got Pop Tarts for your 2nd birthday!
After opening presents, bath time with Libby and some snuggles with Mama, you were ready for a nap. I love that you still love napping. You love your 2 1/2 hours of sleep, and so do I.
We had such a great day, you had fun at Church, ate yummy pizza and thoroughly enjoyed your cupcakes. All in all, it was a fantastic day to celebrate my sweet baby boy.
I am so incredibly grateful that you are mine. The Lord knew we needed such a sweet child in our home when He sent you to us. You bring such laughter, peace and love to all around you. You love with all your heart, give hugs and kisses and “I love you’s” unprompted. You get so excited when it’s time to get the big kids from school and get sad on days when they are gone.
You are increasingly independent and when you do something you proudly proclaim, “I did it!”. Your love knows no boundaries and you are often heard saying, “I love it!”. While you absolutely have the 2 year old temper, you quickly forget who did you wrong and will tackle them with hugs.
You are my snuggle bug and love to “nuggle Mama”. Most the time I love it too. Except at 5 am…then it’s not my favorite . I can’t wait to see you be a big brother and how wonderful you will be. I just know you will love to take care of your new little brother.
I love you my sweet boy. You are such an important part of our family and my heart.
