Letter to our two year old

Dear Luke,

Or "Loote," as you call yourself.  Two years ago, at 12:34 AM, we got to hold you in our arms for the first time!  We are so proud of you and we love you so much.  You're learning and growing so fast, so I'll document some of what's going on with you right now.

You have a great sense of humor!  You love people.  But you aren't afraid to tell them, "bye, beep beep, mah," meaning: "it's time to go, I'll wave to you in your car, I love you."

You just involuntarily gave up your "mama" or pacifier.  You miss it very much and aren't sleeping as well.  Luckily, you still have your gang of stuffed animals: the neigh, the nunny, two gahgoo bears, and a quack quack.  Now, you also sleep with your "uhbuh" (football.)  You just started gymnastics with your friend Julia.  You are the only boy in the class, and you like to hold Julia's hand.  You spend the day with Nana Nina on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when Mommy is at work.  She loves you so much!  You're going to start soccer class with Nana on Wednesdays!

You have been doing pee pee on the potty and we are so proud of you!  You are so proud of yourself, too!  We clap and cheer and dance, and eat thousands of M&Ms.  You have always been a great eater!  You love apple juice.  You love wagon wheel macaroni and cheese but will pretty much try anything!  You have become a great cook with your new play kitchen from Santa.

You are so good to your grandparents and great grandparents.  They can't get enough of you.  You've been so much healthier with your ear tubes in and adenoids out, it's wonderful!  You love playing with your cousin Owa and uncle Sha Sha.

You're so curious!  You say "Waz zat? and Waz zat beep beep?" when you hear and see things.  You love playing sports now, especially "hoop."

We feel so blessed that we get to be with you.  You are the best.  We know you will have a great year!  We hope you never lose this zest for life, your curiosity, your love for people, and your willingness to try everything!

We love you so much,
Mommy and Daddy
