Happy Birthday sweet boy

I sit here, dragging out writing this post.  I don't want to.  How can another year have passed so quickly? I blink and you seem to change.  When I think of you, sweet Beau, my heart swells with joy.  What a personality you have! What a love of life you exude! I am so blessed to be your mama!

You are hilarious.  You wake up with a smile on your face...well, at least most days.  You are not always a  morning person {a trait you get from your father}.  But you come around quickly, especially after a good breakfast.  You LOVE breakfast.

You have a wonderful personality, Beau. You are so expressive.  The faces you make crack us all up.  And you know it.  You love to entertain and make people laugh.  You are tender-hearted too.  Things tug on your heart easily.  Whatever it is you are feeling, we always know.

You love to play.  Anything and everything.  Sports especially.  Daddy has loved teaching you how to bat off the tee and how to play catch.  You love to "dribble" and shoot hoops.  Games too- you adore playing games.  Hi-ho Cherrio, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land.  My favorite part of playing games with you is how encouraging you are.  You clap for your brother or tell mommy good job! I love that you are kind! 

You became a big brother this year.  We weren't expecting it that quickly but God blessed us again.  You are my snuggler; a mama's boy to the core.  But you love your little brother so much.  You are gentle and so sweet with him.  It seems like you got so big so fast after Gabe was born.  But I think it is because you are fearless.  Always ready to take on an adventure. You never think about being scared; you are so brave.  

You have learned so much, Beau! This past year has been amazing.  I love to hear your precious voice, know using sentences and describing what you want with such expression.  You love projects and trying to do new things. 

We love you so much.  We want everything in the world for you.  I just know that if you continue to love and embrace life the way you do, you are going to be so great.  I pray that you follow God's plan for you life.  Whatever that may be.  You captivate people, Beau Maxwell, so I can only imagine the ways God could use you.  You light up my life in ways I am so thankful for.

Happy 2nd birthday, sweet boy!
