Little man, as we rapidly approach your third birthday I can't help but allow the tidal wave of emotions fill me. Being a momma is truly bittersweet. While I take immense pride and joy watching you grow, thrive, and become more and more independent, it also pains me to see you slowly take the tiny of steps to breaking away. Each day brings more wonder and joy than the day before, and I wish that we could, even if just briefly, pause time and continue to just soak up these precious moments.
You are amazing and complete my life in ways I never dreamed. You're an adventurer, explorer, and discoverer.
You make my life more wonderful simply by being in it.
