but we're postponing further celebrations. i know, i know... not fun!
today you're sick, little monster. i can hear you coughing back in your bed as i type this & it makes my heart hurt to know there's not much more i can do than turn up your humidifier, rub vicks on your feet & hope for the best.
but don't worry... we've already done lots of fun things to celebrate! we took you to a padres game while we were in san diego & you had so. much. fun. you clapped & cheered & waved & walked around the whole entire stadium all by yourself. you were in awe of the lights & the stadium organ & you kept yelling out "baseball!" when you looked at the field.
an usher thought you were cute & gave you a little plush baseball with the san diego padres "SD" logo on it. you spent the rest of vacation holding on to that baseball & taking it everywhere you went. heaven forbid you lose sight of it for five minutes!
your mom & dad love watching you have fun, parker. we stayed for fireworks at the end of the game & a week later, you are still talking about them. "see fireworks! boom boom boom! baseball!"
you are such a fun little boy.
and today you are two.
two years have gone by since we met you face to face. two years of holding you in my arms & calling you my baby. you've made me happy beyond anything i ever thought possible & continue to do so everyday. you're my little boy & even though you get bigger everyday & will someday not fit in my arms or on my lap, you'll always be my little boy.
and now you get to be a big brother. i can't wait to see you with your little brother... you're going to have so much fun with him. you love babies & think it's so funny when they do anything. i'm so excited for you to meet him!
we love you so much parker & can't imagine our lives without you. actually, we can't even remember what life was like without you... it must have been so boring! our lives as a family of three began on this day two years ago & nothing has been the same since. thank you so much for being such a good little boy & giving us the best two years of our lives.
happy birthday, little monster.
