Although Doodle has already had 2 birthday parties today is his actually birthday. My sweet (crazy) love turns 2 today and I'm filled with so many emotions. The first birthday was a big milestone but this year he is a little man with such a sweet disposition and the funniest personality. I wore this ensemble to his birthday party at our favorite gelato spot and the whole time so many thoughts were going through my head, one being how lucky Doodle is that he has so many people that love him (my friends spoil him so much!).
I don't often get sentimental but today is different and this is where I document my thoughts so here goes....
Today is your second birthday, two and a half years ago it was impossible to even imagine this day and how happy your father and I would be. You and your father and "wee-wee" were the biggest surprises of my life. I know sometimes I get frustrated with you because I don't know how to react to all of your new emotions and I know sometimes I seem like a crazy person......but its only because I love and adore you and just want you to be the happiest person on earth (literally). When you smile, I smile.....when you laugh, I laugh.......most of the time when you cry, I cry.....but most of all when you love, I love and love is what you have brought most to my heart. When you say a new word or bring a book to me and say "read" I feel like the proudest parent there is and I KNOW that one day you are going to change the world......because your heart, at only two years old is already so full of love and compassion that I myself need to start taking notes from you. Its hard to explain to you right now just how many people love YOU.....but I know their love for you will only grow with the years and they will always be around. Just always remember that miracles happen every day and you, my love, were most definitely a miracle. You saved me and at times I think you saved your father and we will always be grateful to you for that.
