Last year I wrote you from clear across the country. Boy, did I miss you! We were apart for a year which is a really long time when you've only had two so far. I was nervous about how things would be between us coming back. We've both grown so much in the last year! The other day I was looking at photos I took of you when you were 6 months old. Time goes by so fast when you're watching children grow. You don't even look like a baby anymore. Sometimes I think you skipped right past toddlerhood and straight to littleboydom.
You have quite the personality. You don't have many words yet but you're really good about showing us what you want. You're definitely TWO in every sense of the word. You make the funniest faces and it's hard not to laugh, even when you give me dirty looks. You're fully aware of your little 'tude too! I think you're trying to understand me and the changes that are taking place. I've got you to where I ask where my baby is and you point to my belly. The funny thing is if I ask where your baby is you lift up your shirt and point to your belly button. Close enough. ;) You've been kinda grumpy toward me the last few weeks, hitting and scratching me. I think you might be a little jealous because I'm staying with Nana and PopPop or maybe it's the baby coming. Either way I know it's temporary. We have fun together too! I think this is going to be such a big year for you! You've been getting more words this month and you love to play and explore. You're very bright. I look forward to seeing all the ways you grow this year. I can't wait to see you be a big cousin to baby Benjamin too! I'm already dreaming about cousin photos. ;)
I love you,
