My little 2 year old

My dearest little monkey,

Yesterday you turned 2. Where did the time go and how did you grow up so fast? It feels like just yesterday that you were a little babe in my arms. Now you're officially a little boy. A strong independent little boy. You want to do everything on your own, feed yourself, brush your own teeth and God help me if I try to hold your hand while you walk. Those rare times that you walk.
Many call you a busy busy boy. That you are. Always running from one thing to the next, trying to see what type of mischief you can get into.
You are also very stingy with your kisses. Except with me. Although you've decided you do not want to fall asleep in mom's arm, every night before bed you cuddle up to me and give a me a tight squeeze and kiss. I hope that never stops.
I wasn't sure I was ready to have children when you came along. You didn't help the situation with your lack of desire to come out. However, the second you were laid down in my arms I knew that the hell of birth was worth it. I would do it again for you. You are my world my love. I love you so much.

I've got one that's 11 (which I still find shocking), the wonder never ends- and you will always love them more tomorrow than you did today.

Happy Birthday Monkey!

Happy birthday Monkey! I hope your mom keeps this blog up AT LEAST until you're old enough to read this for yourself and realise how lucky you are!

Happy Birthday, Monkey! That sentence about holding him in your arms when he was born made me cry at my desk. That is exactly how I felt about Little Isis. That first moment made it all worth it.
