A Note from Mom  
Happy 2nd birthday, Sweetheart! There are so many little things that I love about you right now that I want to remember. Like how you pause between every word in your sentences, so you always sound very serious. You blew on the fireplace because we warned you it was hot. You sit in bed and tell yourself stories before you fall asleep, or "read" your Bible. You help us "pray. Jesus." before meals and bed. You're so careful going up and down the stairs, but still want me to carry you down in the mornings. How if you get past 3 (and not 1-2-3-2-1) you can count to 12, but then get really confused because you run out of numbers! Your "drip drip dance" where you shake your tush before drying off after bath. You are such a good helper with Theo, bringing me diapers and his pacifier, but don't have any interest in holding him. How you can run, but if we call it running, you stick both arms behind you like a counter-balancing cape. How you knock knock on our bedroom door every morning to come in now that you can get out of bed by yourself. So many things that all add up to the little character you are. 
We love you so much!
