Peanut, today you are two..
2 is the number of eyes you have
2 is the number of times you hit your friend Lily to get that toy back
2 is the number of windows you have in your room so you can see the moon at night and the sun in the morning
2 is the number of pillows Daddy has to hold so you can jump off the couch into his arms
2 is the number of pacifiers you have left which will be taken away today (sorry. i love you)
2 is the number of people today we’re going to see to celebrate your birthday (2 is the number of dogs they have also)
2 is the number of grandmothers you have who love you with all their heart and then some
2 is the number of great-grandparents you have who cry to this day that you’re so far away
2 is the number of months that it’ll be the first time I’ll spend the night away from you
2 minutes ago is the exact time I checked into the hospital ready to be induced
2 hours ago in 2 years ago I laid in bed rubbing my belly praying everything will be ok
2 years ago I gave birth to you
2 years ago, you began enriching our lives
We love you.
