Happy Birthday Jack-Jack

Jackson, you are 2 years old today. I can't even believe that we are here already. 2 years ago I was 31 hours into labor. It was unpleasant, yes, but totally worth every second. Daddy and I are so proud to call you our son. Every minute with you has been wonderful and exciting.

This has been a big year for you. You learned how to walk at 14 months. You started going to Mother's Day Out twice a week all by yourself. You love school, by the way. It's your favorite place to go during the week. You learned how to color, to share toys with your friends and how to count to 5. This year you also learned how to sleep in a big boy bed. You fell out a couple of times. I even found you under the bed one morning fast asleep. (That did freak me out a bit) Now, you are pro at it and wouldn't have it any other way. In 1 year you started talking A LOT. Just over the past month have you really started to develop your vocabulary. You're favorite things are your soft blankets (you now have 3 that are just alike) and "Go Diego Go!" You love dancing to any kind of music and playing guitar. Cheese and juice are your favorite snacks. Then again, so is ice cream.

Family is big to you. You adore your cousins Abby and Carson and talk about them ALL the time. Mae-Mae and Cai-Cai are your big "sisters" and all of your grandparents spoil you too much. Our church family has been another huge influence on your life. We are there almost every day. In every office you will find a box of toys that have been put aside just for you. They love you and many of them have even kept you over night!

Your are a blessed boy, Jackson. Happy 2nd Birthday!! I can't wait to see what the next year will bring us.
