2 Years Old.

2 years ago, I was given the most amazing gift a person can receive. In that time, I have learned so much more about myself, life and love then I could have ever done without him. I have never had a better teacher. As easy as it is to get caught up in the sadness that two years have already gone by, it is hard to not be completely overwhelmed with the massive amounts of joy that he has brought to me in his short life. No doubt, they have been the most amazing years of my life, and I am so glad to have all of these amazing years to look forward to. I know that I am going to love having a little two year old, and I cannot wait for all of the fun, experiences and life we'll experience together in the next year. He is so perfect, and I am so thankful to have such a wonderful, loving, energetic and happy little boy. I am constantly in awe of all that he can do, and I cannot help but be such a proud mother.

At this exact moment two years ago, I was finally eating the lunch that I had begged so hard for in the hospital (chick fil A nuggets, just as we had today for your party) and anticipating what was to come. Little did I understand in that eight hours, my world would be forever changed in the most spectacular way.
