9.30.11 - 2 years

2 years ago today, our precious little miracle was born...

Dear Liam,

Mommy and daddy could not be any more proud of the little man you are and are becoming.  Everyday is something new...from learning your numbers, shapes and alphabet, to recognizing places and faces, you are just turning into one smart little boy!  And you are so sweet and laid back.  Nothing makes you upset (or at least for very long) and we love that you are mild tempered.  In fact, yesterday you scraped your knee on the pavement and laughed when mommy cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide...I'm guessing your pain tolerance is mighty big for someone your size ;)

At 2 years old, you are chattering non-stop and most of it we understand.  You have a zillion words in your vocabulary!  Daddy and I are trying to teach you old-fashioned sayings for things, such as "Dog gone it" and "Oopsey daisy" and you get a kick out of it!  You LOVE love love to play outside, with anything and on anything.  You love our kitties and they are actually starting to not run away from you fearing for their lives love you too.  You love to laugh and frequently do it very loudly, on purpose, especially in public.  You wear a size 2T shirt, 18 month pants (for that tiny waist of yours), size 4 diapers and size 7 shoe.  You are, dare I say, almost 26 pounds and have grown like a weed the last month or so.  And thank goodness too, I think you knew you had a check up soon! 

You know your numbers, in English and in Spanish, from 1-12, and are working on learning your alphabet.  You know your shapes very well too.  Some of your favorite foods right now include ham, green beans, chick peas, lima beans, pears, peaches, cheese tortillas or rather anything with cheese, and teddy grahams.  However, you are just like a toddler and some days can be very picky on what you do and don't eat - it seems as though your favorites can change on a whim!

You are the joy to our lives, the song to our ears and the peace in our hearts.  We can't believe how 2 years have come so quickly, but then we have had some fun, haven't we?  We love you our little Liam, forever and always.  Happy Birthday our little 2 year old!

Mommy and Daddy
