happy 2nd birthday, peter!

Peter 2 Years Old-6

Today our delightful little Peter turns two.  Which for us means, that for two years now we’ve had equal parts sweet and spicy bubbling over in our home. Peter is the perfect balance of the two. He has brought us more joy than we thought possible, he’s also left us laughing and scratching our heads more times than we can count. We are often surprised by the amount of personality and energy and sense of adventure packed into this little guy.  He keeps us on our toes, for sure.

To celebrate your special day, we are giving you a few special gifts that we think you will love, but let there be no mistaking- you are the real gift, Peter, and we are the grateful ones.

For all the times that we find you digging in our drinks for ice, walking hilariously around the house in your Daddy’s shoes, playing independently by yourself, chasing your big brother through the house, eating everyone’s food from their plates, building towers with blocks, reading books quietly in your bed, announcing “Ta-Da” just because you walked into the room, counting to 10 without numbers 3,7,& 8, trying to keep up with all the older kids, bouncing around the house to the beat of your own drum, and laughing hysterically at something silly you and Sam have come up with.  All this and for so much more, we love you.

Peter William, there is something about you that makes our hearts melt just so.

Happy 2nd Birthday, dear one. Our cup runneth over for you.
