Y’all, today my baby is two. I cannot comprehend how time is blowing by me, wasn’t it just the other day that we were heading to the hospital to deliver him? And it’s not like it’s his first birthday… it’s the second. He is not crawling anymore, he no longer wakes up in the middle of the night crying out for me, he doesn’t need me to feed him… my baby is growing up and I’m getting the mama blues over here.
This little boy is running into the terrible two with a vengeance. He is rough and destructive like a tornado and will destroy anything in his path. He throws temper tantrums and can cry with alligator tears on command. He should really take up acting. But then, with the flip of a switch, he can be the sweetest little angel killing you with those big eyes and wide, teethy grin :). Oh, and boy is he smart. He knows almost every letter of the alphabet and numbers to 10. He mimics everything that Husband & I do. He picked up the phone in our hotel the other day and started blabbering off a bunch of gibberish, pausing between some words as if the other end was talking back to him, then he would say “bye bye” and slam the phone down. It was so funny! He loves to do everything that big brother is doing. If brother is playing trains, he wants to (
destroy) play trains, if brother is jumping on the trampoline, he wants to be on it with him, if brother is brushing his teeth, he wants to brush his too. Not sure if Bennett is crazy about the constant shadow around him, but he tolerates it to some extent.
My Remy James,
You have no idea how much I adore you. Every single thing about you is absolute perfection and you bring thousands of my smiles to my face all day long. I have no idea what I did so great in life to be blessed with your presence, but I feel like the luckiest mama in the world to have you. Your smile lights up a room, your giggles make hearts melt, your little waddle run… I never want it to go away!! Of course, I wish you would eat more, and whine less, but I know that this phase will also pass and someday I will have to get a deep freezer in my garage to hold all the food you and big brother will consume and I won’t be able to keep it stocked.
I know you are going to do such great things in this world, at least based on your fun loving personality ;), and I cannot wait to see it! You are so outgoing and friendly to everyone you come in contact with, you like to make people laugh or at least you like to laugh at yourself while trying to make others laugh, you are precious in every way. You light up my life like the sun. This Mama loves you to the edge of a galaxy and back, and nothing will ever change that.
Your forever number one fan,
