Happy 2nd Birthday, Reid

Two years old.

I feel like the normal thing to do for this post is wax poetic about how I can’t believe how fast time has gone – how we’ve blinked and already somehow here we are… but really? I’m practically speechless that only two years have passed since we first met you.

I hope that this is because I haven’t taken one single day for granted. It’s certainly not because it’s been any kind of a hardship. You have been pure joy since you arrived on the scene.

Reid, so much has happened this year. Our worlds have spun around us and every single one of us has faltered through these transitions except for you. You – the tiniest among us – have been our steady.

You are such a buddy – to anyone you’re around, really. We all love hanging out with you. But your best playmate is brother. You call him “Mammy,” and he loves it. He loves you, kid. (Your dad and I could never get away with calling him that!)

Arguably, though, your favorite person in the whole world is your Grandpa P. He is your absolute hero. If you hear his voice in another room, you stop what you’re doing, yell, “PAPA!” and run off in search of him. Poor Grandma has been shunned so many times in favor of good ol’ Papa. In fact, it’s not hard to find pictures of you with him, because when he is visiting – you are always with him.

Also? You are a complete and utter ham, just like your brother. Maybe it runs in the family. You love making us all laugh – but some of it isn’t intentional. You have a flare for mommy’s accessories, which – might I say – perfectly complement this husky frame you have going. You absolutely light up a room.

You also seem to have realized from early on that you catch more flies with honey, because you sure do turn on the charm at key moments. Guess you do have a little southern in you yet.

Buddy, you’re it. I don’t know how I got so lucky that you joined our little family, but I thank God every day that you did. I love you so much my sweet Baby Bear. Happy 2nd Birthday, my darling.
