Two


Eli,

It's hard to believe that you are already two-years-old! You are so grown up already, and are becoming more and more of a "big boy" everyday. It seems like just yesterday when we found out that you were going to be born... I remember the excitement I felt in learning that you would be a little boy, and the love that daddy and I had for you even before you were born. You have brought so much joy to our lives, and each day we thank God for you. We pray that you would enjoy this coming year as a 2-year-old, and live life to the full! I know you will have many adventures ahead of you, and you'll learn to do so many new things this year. Above all, we hope that as you grow you come to know more and more about how much Jesus loves you. We know that He has a great plan for your life!

This year your personality has really blossomed and we are learning more and more about who God has created you to be each day. Here are some of the ways I would describe you today:

*Caring - You love your family (mommy, daddy, Petey, Gamma, Gampa, Nana, Papa....) and you enjoy reciting (or singing) through everyone's name in the family on a daily basis. You also like to give hugs and saw "awwwww," as you give them.

*Animal-Lover - You love to see, and touch, all sorts of animals, especially doggies. Every doggy is your friend, but Petey is your favorite. You are still learning how to always treat animals nicely, but your intentions are always to play :) You enjoy going to the Zoo and seeing animals there, as well as watching them in movies, and reading about them in books. You also love the sounds animals make, and often refer to them by their sound instead of their name.

*Musical - Everyone who knows you, knows you have loved music since you were born. You love to keep a beat on a drum (and have surprised many people with how steady your rhythm is), and you also love to bang out a tune on the piano, or sing a happy tune as you ride in the car.

*Fun - You are so much fun to be around, and love to PLAY! (or "pay" as you call it) You are very busy with all of your toys: cars, trucks, blocks, balls, coloring, play-doh, etc, etc. In fact, we even have an entire room in the house, the play room, dedicated to your love of playing! Although you are hard to keep up with at times, we hope you never lose your energy and excitement!
