And then he was 2.

My Dearest Jack,
Today you are 2! I can hardly believe it is true.

I can now see bits and pieces of myself in you, but, I can also see how you are quickly becoming your own little person.

This has been quite a year for us, you have learned how to walk, how to talk, how to be funny!, how to be loving, and so much more. You have been a great joy to watch grow, and sometimes I can still hardly you believe you are my little boy.

I hope that you will always keep your enthusiasm and curiosity about the world around you.

(And most importantly for me, I hope I will always be able to hear the sweet way you say "Mama" forever ringing in my ears.)
With love,

P.S. Look at the turkey run!! He sure was scared of you.


  1. Happy, happy, happy birthday Jack!

  6. Happy birthday to your little boy! 2 is such a fun age...exploring the world, language, and emotions. be sure to relish in it instead of fearing it like many parents do. It's a wonderful time for a child. And it's fun to go along for the ride as a parent...

  7. Happy Birthday, Jack!

    Happy birthday to my precious little buddy. It is hard to believe that you've already been with us for a whole two years. I am very proud to be your dada. I love you!

    Hugs, tickles, and kisses,
