Today you are 2.
Today you are no longer a baby, but have become my little boy.
These past two years have been such a roller coaster. We've had days that I didn't want to end and some where I couldn't keep my eyes off the clock, waiting for bedtime.
Moments of fear, of sadness,
and moments of unbelievable joy.
You have taught me what it means to be brave, to be strong, and to be thankful.
You have brought me closer to God, and one day I hope to do the same for you. I am forever changed for the better because I have you.
Happy Birthday, my little man.
Mama loves you with all her heart.
And Happy Birthday to you, too, Peyton. I know your mama and daddy and brother and sister would give anything to watch you blow those 4 candles out on your cake today, but God was tired of waiting for His turn. We know you are in an eternal celebration, and we're so humbled to have been allowed to borrow you for as long as we did. So we'll light your birthday candle anyway, and praise God as we blow it out, that He ever gave you to us at all.
Happy Birthday, Peyton and Andrew.
