Happy 2nd Birthday, Tommy!

Dear Tommy,

One year ago:
  • You couldn’t walk more than 10 feet without falling over
  • You loved to play “Simon Says” and laughed with delight when we’d mimic your hand clapping or raspberry blowing
  • You had a habit of crawling into the bath with your clothes on when we weren’t looking
Today you are 2!  You love hearing us sing “The Wheels on the Bus” and even sing along, adding the word “town” at the appropriate moment.  You love all things vehicular.  You love trying to do things for yourself, like putting your shirt and shoes on.  We try to give you shoes that are simple for you to put on.  :)  You love grated cheese and ketchup.  You’re so polite when you say “more che-chup peese” and we love hearing those cute words.  You try to mimic our spelling whenever you see oversized letters, saying “eee, arr, iiii, eee!” even though the letters say “T - O - M.”

You are my little buddy and I love spending time with you, whether we’re watching Cars, tickling, or reading a book.  I can’t wait to see how you grow and figure the world out during this next year.
