Happy Birthday to you!

Dear Son,

Two years ago today at 2:09 AM you were ripped out of my belly by a Doctor! I just thought you should know. I wanted to tell you that I love you TONS and so very happy that I am your mom! Every day I get to spend with you is like a gift or a present! I think that is why they call the current day the present... because its a gift we get to live each day with each other or something like that. It sounded better in my head. But anyways I do enjoy watching you grow and learn new things. I never know what each new day will bring. Its FUN to be your mom.

I always wonder what you are going to grow up and be like. Are you going to be nice or mean, popular or a loner, cool or a nerd. Whatever you grow up to be, I LOVE YOU AND I ALWAYS WILL. Thank you for picking me to be your mother. I know it will go by fast and before I know it you will be getting ready for school... then soon asking for keys to the car so you can drive to school... That makes me sad. But for now I will still wipe your bum and get up at 7 AM and watch Blues Clues with you because I love you and thats what mom's do! But do your best in everything you do. Be kind and loving and a friend to all. Because it's nice to be important but its more important to be nice!

So enjoy your big day, I can't believe you are 2!!! I can't wait to see what this next year brings... But for now I will highlight some of our best and not so best memories of this past year! We took 2 plane rides to see family. Had a wonderful Christmas! Got to go to Alabama for your Great Grandma's 75th birthday! We both took our first ambulance ride when you fell and bit your tongue. We went to many zoos, parks, and museums. Dealt with your allergies. Threw up on Mommy in public. Got your 1st hair cut, you did so good!. Went to the library and dentist for the 1st time! Learned to deal with water and try to swim. Wow thats a lot I am sure I am missing something but thats all I can remember! I love you tons and look forward to this next year.

That was a great synopsis of a year with a toddler. Only puked on once? Must've been a slow year.

Save this. I'm sure he'll love it when he's asking for the keys to the car... Well, maybe not then, but soon thereafter. A few years later it becomes okay for moms to be cool again.
