Now that you’re two, we see the boy you will be
Whether you’re chasing the dog or surprising us with hugs, we love your personality-
Energetic and kind, strong-willed and smart;
naughty, sweet, or wild, we love your big heart.
Now that you’re two, you have lots of things to say.
With excitement in your eyes, you tell us new stories every day.
We listen intently, though we can’t decipher it all,
most of your stories end with a laugh, an exuberant shout, or something about bup bup and a ball.
Now that you’re two, each day you learn something new.
You can point to your nose, your tummy and toes, and let us know when a choo choo is passing through.
You’re observant like an engineer, and try to figure things out on your own.
“I got it” is your confident phrase, but you’ll ask for help if you can’t do something alone.
Now that you’re two, you’re a great little helper.
In addition to being the best mess maker we know, you’re also a great picker upper.
Your favorite chore is feeding the dog every morning and night
because when we’re not looking you like to sneak a bite.
Now that you’re two, your world is so much bigger,
Wanderlust is in your blood, you always seek adventure.
Sometimes your curiosity strays you too far from our side.
You’re fearless and bold, and brave enough to conquer the big kid slide.
Now that you’re two, you would rather live outside.
If you could, you’d play in the yard all day and never step inside.
You’re easy to please; all you need to have fun is a stick or a ball, and a little bit of space.
But, it breaks your heart when we have to be done and puts the saddest look on your cute little face.
Now that you’re two, your talents are on display.
Every sport you’ve picked up, you naturally know how to play.
Maybe someday you’ll be a soccer star and play on the national team-
maybe you’ll be a pitcher, an artist, a doctor, whatever your choose, we want you to chase your dream.
We love you with our whole hearts and with every fiber in our being.
We pray you’ll grow to be a good man, who loves the Lord, and serves Him willingly.
