my baby turns two

Judah, you are wildfire. Passionate, determined, and lion-hearted.
Sweet and wide-eyed, I am helplessly wrapped around your little finger.
One, unsolicited "I wuv you, momma," gets you anything you want!
Your love for adventure, and no-fear spirit challenges my motherly heart
and inspires me to let go and live further away from my comfort zone.
I find myself wishing I was more like you. I can't believe you are mine!

Two years ago you were placed in my arms and I didn't cry,
but I laughed because you were SO big (10 lbs!) - and you just
blinked at me with these tiny, soft eyes. We both were vulnerable.
Our hearts locked. I love you to the moon, baby!

I am sure God has big plans for you.
Your charismatic, little heart is going to move mountains.
It has already moved mine. You make me pray a lot... as you injure
yourself frequently. I am convinced you will grow up to be a
cliff diver or race car driver. It's fine, give me a heart attack.

You are the sweetest, little brother to Isaiah. You two take care of each
other and stick together like glue. I'm happy to be raising warrior brothers.
Papa loves you too. So much. I think it is safe to say that you have succeeded
in wrapping him around your finger too!

You tell me now that you will ALWAYS be my baby. That you will ALWAYS
kiss me goodnight. And I cherish these days - carefully storing away the
purest memories of you in your childhood. Because time will change things.
Someday you will be a man. Someday you will most likely kiss your wife
and your own babies goodnight...

But we will ALWAYS love each other. And I will blow you kisses in my heart.
Wherever you are. Keep marching through life to the beat of your own drum, my son.
You are beautiful. You are loved tremendously. Happy birthday, my lion.

*not gonna cry not gonna cry*

love, momma
