happy 2nd birthday!

Dearest Travis,
You turned two today. My heart is filled with joy knowing that you have grown and flourished through yet another year. Two my dear boy has so much to offer and I know that you will embrace all that it brings.

Year one flew by and it seems odd to me to know that two years ago I gave birth to my first son. That my heart was open to a second child and a child of different gender as well. It is amazing how a mother can love each child as if they were the only apple of their eye. That is how my heart feels when I see you. When I run my fingers through your blonde curly hair. Yes, the hair that I can not come to cut. I will keep you in curls my dear sweet boy until it is truly time to cut them off. You are the love of my life and my heart will only grow deeper in love with you each day of our lives.

Travis you are a strong willed little boy with a passionate heart. You love, you do love deeply. I know you will grow into a fine, strong, honest and compassionate man. I see you taking the world by storm and embracing all that is given to you. Maybe I am bias after all I am your mommy but I just know great things are yet to be yours.

Some of the things that at two have already captured your heart are Thomas the Train and Hot Wheel Cars. You love your sissy and papa. You truly love your nana. Tonight at dinner you said "my favorite part is daddy." I have no doubt that the two of you will have a bond like no other. You are daddy's boy and he loves you so. The thought that rings glorious in my heart is that you this afternoon woke from your nap saying "mommy here." Yes, Mommy is here. Right were I intend to be forever and ever.

While your second birthday celebration was not the grand party that I had envisioned it to be many months ago. It was just the way I would have wanted it to spend it, with you! Mommy has been sick but is on the mend. No doubt this is just as hard on you and sissy as it is me. But it is just a short portion of our time together so that gets me through. I am so sorry for you having to miss me and wonder when I would be home again. But I am here, "Mommy here."

I love you Travis! You have stolen my heart and it will always be yours.
Happy Second Birthday my sweet boy!
Love, Mommy
