2 years in the blink of an eye...


Two years ago tonight, we were curling up in the hospital for our first night as a family. Your daddy and I were terrified to fall asleep because you were so new and we didn't want to miss anything. These two years have flown by so fast - I can't even put into words how it feels to realize that you have been a part of our lives for only 24 months. I can't imagine what life is without you in it - and as I was rocking you to sleep tonight I realized that in 14 years, you'll be getting your license, in 16 years you'll be graduating high school... when I was younger those milestones felt like they were FOREVER away - but now they already seem to be looming over my head. I know I say this all the time, but if I could just freeze time and really be able to enjoy all of the new things that you learn each day (you used your first three-word sentence tonight!!) and do (and climbed all the way up into your high chair). I just feel like you are growing so fast that I can't keep up! So, this weekend we will celebrate everything that you have become in these FAST two year and everything that you will become in the next one.

I love you more than life peanut... so much more than I could ever put into words.
