A Special Day!

Happy 2nd Birthday to my Sweetie Pie

Today is your 2nd birthday and although you are far away on this special day, you are close to me in my heart. I cannot imagine our lives without you...you fill a spot that only you could fill. These past 2 years have been a blast and a joy as I watched you grow from this tiny little baby into the sweetest little boy. I was blessed to be there the moment you were born. The joy and love your mommy and daddy expressed in those moments is something I will never forget. As we cried tears over the miracle of life and the beauty that is you, I was awestruck over this incredible occasion of witnessing your mommy become a mommy and your daddy become a daddy.

No matter what happens in your life, you must always know how loved and wanted you were. You have blessed your mommy and daddy with much joy in their lives. Even though they are not together, they both love you with all of their hearts. You are surrounded with so many people that love and adore you.


Just one week ago, when you were here for a short visit, you filled our home with your joy. Your words, "I love you Grandma." and "Come Grandma." as you pulled my hand to take me to play, were music to my ears. You are so full of life...so full of being a little boy that loves to run, jump, climb, dance, sing, talk, smile and laugh. Your kisses and hugs and giggles are precious gifts to me and all those you give them to.

Grandma could not ask for a better little boy to be her grandson. You are so polite and well behaved...your parents have taught you so well. You are so smart...as you counted in spanish for me and showed me all the sign language you already know, and all the songs that you can sing, I was completely amazed by you. You are a special little boy, that has me wrapped around your finger just as you are wrapped around my heart. As I sang Happy Birthday to you on the phone this morning, I could hear you pretending to blow out your candles. I wanted to come through the phone and squeeze you and kiss your little cheeks.


Happy Birthday my sweet little stinker! I love you all the way to the moon and back! From your grandma that danced the day you were born!

So sweet! And they grow up so fast. I was doing a photo album of my little niece yesterday from when she was a few months old. Now she is two and a half and running around and being as sweet as can be! I actually started crying for the baby she was. No wonder moms have more than one!

What a wonderful letter to your grandson.

He sounds like he is quite advanced! I'm impressed that he can count...and even more so that he can count in Spanish! And he can say, I love you Grandma? That's awesome! I don't know many little boys who just turned 2, who can put that many words together!

You, his mommy and daddy must be so proud!!!!!
