Notes to a 2 Year Old

My dearest, sweetest, most special boy, Jack.

Just thinking about you brings the biggest smile to my face. I have loved you all along but so much more each passing week.

It is getting increasingly more difficult to be away from you while working full time. I miss you terribly at work. I miss the way you tell me to "come, come" and grab my hand and pull me into your room and once we arrive to your room you point and tell me to "sit".

I love the way you say "tada!". Sometimes you say right after I tell you not to do something. Other times you say it after Papa or I do something. I'm not sure where you got it from, probably your nanny. She teaches you cool tricks. It is so awesome to watch you grow, little one.

Your laugh is infectious. It makes me so happy to see you so full of joy. I love how polite you are. You always say thank you when anyone gives you anything. Now, you've even begun to say "thank you, babe" or "sorry, babe". I guess you picked up that from Momma and Papa. :) Anyway, it is the cutest thing in the world.

Well, I've got to get back to work for now but know that I am thinking of you always and I cannot wait to get home to hug you so you'd better be ready!

  1. What a cutie pie! Ha, the "babe" thing is hilarious!

  2. What adorable photos! Liv does the same thing with luring us into her room with 'come, come'. As soon as you arrive she shuts the door behind you and asks you to sit. For her, it's the surest way to a playdate and it's so cute :).
