I'm more than a couple weeks late, but I think it's because I'm still in shock that my youngest, and almost-biggest, baby has turned 2!! Where did the past few years go? Right now, he is upstairs, sans paci (a maddening, but mercifully short ordeal), and snoozing in his big-boy-bed.
I can still see him as a one-year-old, with his hands all in his birthday cake. There was definitely more on his face than in his mouth. And two weeks ago, I watched him sitting there with his fork in hand and very carefully eating bite by every, single bite of his cake and ice cream. Man, they grow up so much in a year!!
There is so much love in his strong little hugs! And his smile - those eyes, those cheeks, and that grin will make you do anything you can to see it over and over. His big brother and big sister love and dote on him. He loves taking a ride in daddy's truck - and he loves to snuggle in the big bed in his mama's arms if he wakes up in the middle of the night.
While I'm still working on understanding the pediatrician-recommended 50% of everything he says, I do know that he is a very bright little boy with a mischievous twinkle in his eye- who really likes cake and jelly beans and applesauce (but only in the pouches, please). We love our Big Will - and I know that there is a big plan in store for him! I can't wait to see it unfold...
