My sweet baby boy,
Today you turn 2 years old. I can't believe you are growing up so fast! It seems like just yesterday I was holding you in my arms for the first time, amazed that God had blessed us with another perfect baby boy.
I love the age you are at right now. I know everyone says "terrible twos", but I love to watch you learn something new every day. I love the excitement in your eyes when you master a new skill, like jumping. I love hearing you say new words and watching you communicate with your big brother and sisters. I love playing the "where is" game with you, where you show me where your head, eyes, ears, neck, etc are, because you know when I ask about your belly that I am going to tickle you as soon as your shirt goes up. I love that you dissolve into a fit of giggles before my hand ever gets near you.
I love your hugs, those you give me and those you share with others. I love your kisses, even when I have to kiss you through your pacifier. I love that when you wake up in the morning, the first thing I hear is your little voice calling, "Mommy? Mom? Mom! MOM!" over and over until I get you out of bed. I love that when I call your name you yell "UMIIIING!" (coming) and run as fast as you can over to me. I love that when you can't find me, you put your hands up and ask, "Where'd mommy GO?!"
I love that you never walk, you just run everywhere you go. I love that you're always ready to go "bye-bye", and it doesn't matter where we go, as long as we don't leave you behind. I love the special bond and the secret language that you and Kennedy share. I love that you help each other, that you hold hands, and (most of the time) you share your toys. I pray that bond will continue to grow through the years.
I am so looking forward to this year with you, Keeghan. There are going to be some big changes with Kennedy going off to Kindergarten and Kellsey coming home to our family, but I know you will take it all in stride. Just remember that no matter how old you get, you will always be my baby. You're such a wonderful, loving, sweet little boy. You are my heart, and I'm so glad to be your mommy.
Happy 2nd birthday my Keeghan-weeghan, I love you more than you'll ever know!
