I don’t even know where to begin this post. I just went went back and read my post on Sterling’s Birthday last year (Here) and it brought a tear to my eye. I can not believe my baby boy is turning two today. Two years ago at 9:46 am on this day I welcomed the most precious bundle of joy into my life.
Every day I am amazed that Matt and I created this perfect little boy. Being a mother to Sterling is such a blessing. I knew my life would change when I had a child but I never understood the extent of how much you can love something until Sterling came into my life. Being a mother is quite possibly the hardest yet most rewarding job ever. I have never laughed and cried so hard in the last two years. My days are filled with far more worry than before but I would not change it for a minute. I thank God everyday for gifting me with this bright, smart, and handsome baby boy. His laughter and smiles fill my heart with so much joy sometimes I feel like it might burst. My day is not complete until I walk in and check on my little man sleeping. There is something so special about seeing your child sleeping so peaceful. I walk in and look at him and feel like the luckiest mom alive.
This year has brought many changes since last year. My little man is a talking machine. He likes to repeat everything we say even bad words! And when he says “Frog” It does indeed sound like a bad word. He loves his Popsicles and Lollipops, they are his favorite “treats” as he calls them. He is quite the artist, loves to paint and color. He greets me every morning with a huge smile and “hi” when I come to get him out of bed. He loves to wear socks on his hands kind of weird but also kind of cute at the same time. His favorite foods are yogurt and oatmeal. I think he would eat breakfast for every meal if he could. He is beyond obsessed with the show “Little Bear” on Nick Jr. We watch an episode every morning when he gets up, it is our cuddle time. He loves to shop and wear my jewelry around, which secretly makes me smile because I know he is my child! He is the most loving little boy ever, always ready to give a hug, especially when you tell him “no.”
Happy Birthday to my sweet son. Sterling, you are the light of my life and I am so proud to be your mom. You have infinitely made me a stronger and better person. I look forward to each and every day we spend together. You bring more love and happiness to my life than you will ever know! I love you to the moon and back again a million times over.
