Love Note to My 2 Year Old Jake
So some days I feel sentimental and I came across this love note in my phone I forgot I wrote. It is more of a how I was feeling at the time and just wanted to get all my words down on paper. By paper I mean the notes in my phone :)
I have the most adorable, crazy little 2 year old boy Jake. He is just a ball of fun, energy, and cuteness. Sure I have to yell at him and punish him sometimes, he is 2. But for the most part he just lights up the room and makes me laugh. I love him so much and could just stare at him all day while he does his crazy little things and discovers the world around him.
Definitely the coolest part about being a mom to me is relearning how amazing all the little things in life are. You get to see the world through your child's eyes again and find the joy in every day things. Don't even get me started on how exciting holiday's are again! Especially Christmas my favourite!
Anyways here is my love note I wrote shortly after he turned 2. Hopefully I remember to do this at least once a year.
To my Jakey Jake
I want to write you little loves notes that we can look back on one day just to make us smile and feel loved.
You just turned 2 years old and oh my what an amazing 2 years it has been.
I am so thrilled that I am lucky enough to stay home with you and spend so much of your little young life with you. You are so large in both size wearing 4-5 year old clothing already and personality. You are the happiest, funniest, easiest little ball of energy and sunshine and love.
You make everyone smile no matter what mood they are in.
You are finally starting to sleep better now that you are in your big boy Lightning McQueen bed.
Your current favourite movies are moana, cars, king fu panda, finding dory and nemo. I watch these movies all day every day. You run around like a crazy man all day and play with your toys. You're favourite thing to do is throw things everywhere. Every time you drink a baba (the true love of your life) you have to put one arm up to play with your hair. We call it the mailman and it is the cutest thing ever.
You have a huge smile that just warms my heart and soul and makes me so happy.
You are constantly talking now. No sentences yet and sometimes I have no idea what you want but u try haha.
We recently went on a trip to the Bahamas Atlantis cove and it was so fun. You are so good. There were children crying on the plane you just sat there like the perfectly chill child you are eating snacks and watching movies. Occasionally playing peek a boo with your uncle mike. You hated the sand the first night but soon grew to love it and I couldn't get you off the beach or the mini water slides. You also loved going to the dig every night to see the underground aquariums usually running straight to the nemo tank. We came home with big smiles awesome memories and a little bit of a tan. You're amazing!
You are getting so big. Sometimes I just want you to say my little man but another part of me is so excited to see this awesome kid you are growing into. You are so smart, fun, happy, kind and loving. You make the world a better place. You light up every room you enter and make everyone laugh. I hope you keep that personality and love for life forever. Love you to the moon and back. xox mommy xox
