My baby turns 2.


Dear Littlest,

Tomorrow you turn two! I tried to explain that to you today, and showed you how to hold two fingers up. You've been learning to count, preferring "Seven, eight, nine!" to "One, two, three." We read you a card that came in the mail today from your great-grandma, and you ran around yelling, "Happy Birt'day!"

I planned to go next door to sew a birthday garland tonight after getting you to sleep, but you were so wound up it took an hour, and my eyes are too sleepy now.

After nursing for 20 minutes, you suddenly pointed your finger at the ceiling in the dark, saying "Hey! Seeit! T'uck driving! Seeit? Brmm, brmm. Oh! Choo choo t'ain! Oh! Tractor driving! Derrit goes!" You kept that up for a while, pointing at imaginary vehicles and talking about them. I'd laugh and tell you to go to sleep, and you'd kiss the trucks goodnight, and nurse some more. Then -- "Oh! Dump t'uck driving! Derrit goes!" You started all over again.

You are so much fun. Every morning, your brothers can't wait until you're awake. They come in to peek, and lay on the bed to watch you if you're nursing. You call out their names as soon as you open your eyes. Then you mew like a kitty until I pet your head, and you sit up to see if Emma the cat is on the bed.

Right now you love your construction vehicle puzzle, monster truck videos, trains, jumping on the trampoline, toast with lots of butter, and being with your family. We love you being with us, too.

Happy Birthday, Baby.

love,
Mommy

Oh, I love it. Every year I write each of my four children a Birthday Letter. I can't wait to tie them all up into one package for their own baby shower gift.

Thank you, everyone! He had a very nice birthday!

Davi... my skin? LOL. I have rosacea, but you probably can't see that in the pictures. Too funny, I've been totally neglecting it lately, after 20 years of dedicated moisturizing. (I started using Oil of Olay when I was 13.) If I have good skin, it's from my maternal grandmother, who looked 40 when she was 60. But, thank you!! :)
