tomorrow my little baby turns two.
i can’t believe it.

to me, he is still so much the little baby that i brought home from the hospital.
he still is the cuddly chunker who i can’t squish enough every day.

i love his cheeks.
and when he comes to lay down on my chest and asks me for a “sawwwg”
and the way he gets excited about the world, and animals, and babies.
i love his little baby sounds and words.
i love when his face lights up when he sees me in the mornings.
and how he sits by the window waiting to say “heh-woooh” to everyone outside.


i can’t get enough of him.
even when i really think i’ve had enough and i want to pull my hair out, once he’s down for bed i miss him again.
i wish he would come cuddle in bed with us and let me kiss him and hold him.
{one bad thing about him growing up is that he can run away from my hugs now… not a fan!}

as much as he drives me crazy sometimes, he also makes me crazy in love with him.
out of all the things i’ve done in my life {not that it has been a lot but still} the single best thing i have ever done has been to be Elijah’s mother.

Eli bw edit

he has taught me more about love & life than any of my family and relationship classes have.
he has made me appreciate everything that life has to offer
and realize how absolutely amazing life truly is.
the times where i feel like i want to give up, he doesn’t let me!
no matter the timing of when he joined our little family, i am so grateful that his sweet spirit was entrusted to us and to have the opportunity to be his mother.
he has been the best surprise i have ever gotten.

i love this kid!!

happy birthday baby boy!
no matter how old you get, you will always be my little baby!

Sweetest and best post ever! You are a lovely mother to our "chunker" grandson. Wish we lived closer so I could get some of those two year old hugs. Loved, loved the pictures you posted also. He is sooooo cute sitting by the window and talking to the people outside. Too precious. Thanks, Megan for all you do for Elijah and Adam. You are a light in our family. Love you.
