Today we celebrate you because today you are two. It feels like yesterday I was laughing hysterically in between contractions while being rushed through the doors of the hospital and down the halls as you were fighting to be born. You had no plans of waiting any longer. You were born so incredibly fast and I was not ready for the overwhelming abundance of postpartum depression. I desperately wish I could go back and redo our first year together. I struggled emotionally so much and I know you felt it in your body and heart. ❤️
However, this past year has been the best year of our life together and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. God has been so good in helping us bond and become so close. You are funny, goofy, wild, a ball of energy, and so loved by so many. You have quite the personality and I love when you play peekaboo, look at books intently, growl like a Lion at everyone who says hi in the store and wrestle your daddy! Thanks for all your kisses and cuddles. I know it won’t be long until we hear “I love you”. You love your big sister so much. You follow her everywhere and try your hardest to annoy her. You are so good at that. Jay, I can’t imagine life without you! How did we exist before you burst into our lives? “Jesus Loves Me” is your favorite song and you are so cute singing it. Never forget how loved you are by Jesus. There will be so many disappointing moments in life but Jesus will never disappoint and His love for you will never stop. Your the best little boy in my world. You are exactly the little boy Jesus knew I needed. The world would not be the same without you. I love you. Happy 2nd birthday.
You are my reminder that life can be really hard and look not so positive and God in His perfect time will change it all and restore what was loss or broken.
