2nd Birthday

Today is Evan's 2nd birthday!

Warning: gushy mom-talk ahead...

Evan, I can't believe how much you have grown, changed, and learned in the past two years. Starting off as basically a sack of potatoes that ate and pooped, you are now a little man with your own personality, emotions, likes, dislikes, and interests.

You're incredibly independent - you will walk away from us and not look back. We love that about you, and it worries us a bit too sometimes!

You love counting things, but only by two's (though I've heard you count up to 7 before (and apparently 9 as of this morning)). 

You love making piles - of anything - and then, of course, destroying those piles only to start all over again.

You love your trains - so much so that they're regular props in our family portraits this year.

Your vocabulary astounds us - you can pretty much say anything, so we have to be careful!

We love it when you give us hugs and kisses, especially after you've gotten in trouble ;)

There are thousands of other things we love about you, and I'm sure there'll be thousands more in the next year. We can't wait to see what you'll learn or do next.

Happy birthday, Evan-potamus!!
