Happy 2nd Birthday Preston!

This day two years ago my baby boy entered our lives and it changed forever. John Preston you have been a special little man since the very beginning and we love you so much! As I have been looking through photos of you over the past year (I am putting together your 2nd year video), I can't believe how much you have grown up.

(Preston: 1 yr old)

Seeing photos of you with your longer baby hair, with just a few teeth, and watching videos of you babbling sweet, yet you were a baby. Now at the ripe old age of two, you have turned into a small toddler...talking with a mouthful of teeth, bossing us around and starting to lose that precious baby fat. Where has the time gone?

Well, I'll tell has been a busy 2nd year for you! You have attended the mothers day out program three days a week at our church, you have accompanied me on hundreds of walks, watched lots of videos and episodes of Curious George, spent a lot of time with both sets of your grandparents, pushed trucks all over the house (scratching the hardwoods in the meantime), fought, loved and played with your sister daily, spent countless hours resisting food and many more hours sleeping (if only you could sleep past 6am!).

You are a busy little boy Pres....going 100 mph all the time! I can't wait to see how you are when you get older and put that energy behind something you love, whether it is a sport or a job. I predict you will be very successful in whatever you put your mind. You are sooo smart (I really can't believe what you can do at 2 yrs)!!

Today for your birthday, we took a walk bright and early (in fact it was still dark when I pulled the stroller out). Then we got ready for the day and headed to the zoo to explore. You ran from one exhibit to the next with Bennett, took a train ride and only fell a couple of times. The only scary thing that happened was that a black swan bit your hand while you were trying to feed the turtles. It scared you to death, but you bounced back quickly as you usually do. Then we met Daddy for lunch (what a treat). Now you are taking a nap.....awww the easy life of a 2 year old.

(the mean black swans....)

We love you Preston - you bring so much joy to our lives each and every day. I thank God for you, and hope you know how much your mommy and daddy love you. Happy 2nd Birthday!!

The pic of them together on the train is so cute. He really does look like a little boy now. No more baby face. Bennett looks SO much like you in this photo, Jules. I did a double take. It's amazing!
