Ethan, being your mommy is a joy and a privilege. Your Daddy and I love you so very much! Watching you grow up these past two years is bitter-sweet though, I am so happy that you are our sweet, healthy, curiously funny baby boy; but as I realize how fast two years have passed I am reminded that all too soon you will be grown with a family of your own. The memories we make now, I will forever treasure; and hope that you do too. (Even now as I write this you are eating cheetos and occasionally feeding me one then saying "It's GOOD!") I just love our morning routine of snuggling as you wake up, eating breakfast with Daddy, then reading together for a bit.
Your limitless energy is keeping me on my toes, and your love for your baby brother makes my heart swell with pride over what a great big brother you are. I love that you already have a concern for those around you. When you think something is wrong, you are quick to ask "Alright? Ok?" Your love for Daddy is evident and I hope one day you grow up to be just like him, because he is following Jesus.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Buddy! You are our priceless gift from God.
