Happy Birthday, Simon!

Posted on

My baby is two. And man, let me tell you, I have never been more happy to celebrate a birthday. This year started off super difficult with a whole month in the hospital and Simon fighting for his life (there will be another blog post on that coming soon). Jesse and I are thankful to God for Simon’s stubborn and independent personality that helped him to recover as quickly as he has.

It’s almost hard to believe at times that this little person can have such a big personality. He is quirky, making the funniest faces and doing silly voices all the time. He is also the hugest cuddle bug and momma’s boy.

I am so excited to see him grow and thrive during his third year of life. I know that his little “engineer’s brain” will continue to want to know how things work and ask “why” even when he doesn’t understand the reasoning that is explained to him.

I am thankful for his curiosity and his need to always dump things out, even when it’s his cereal from his bowl EVERY morning.

I praise God every day when I see his gigantic smile and hear his tiny little voice and am thankful for every moment that I get to be his mother.

Now that I’m crying thankful-happy-emotional-mommy-tears, I’ll leave you with the pictures we took yesterday to mark this milestone.

I love his pudgy baby hands.

To be honest, at first, I really wanted my second child to be a girl, but I am so overjoyed to see these two be brothers and grow together and pray they will continue to be the best of friends.

If you leave a comment, I’ll be reading them all to Simon throughout the day. 🙂
