Dear Braeden...

First of all, I cannot believe you are 2 years old today! Where did that time go? Anyone know? It has gone way too fast!
I hope you have had a wonderful day just hanging out with your big brother and your Dad (sorry Mum had to go to work, I wish I didn't have to).
I loved that you started saying 'birthday' today. I am pretty sure you knew what it meant..I mean, everyone knows that birthday really means presents! I am very glad that you liked your presents. How exciting!

I want you to know that you mean the world to us. We always call you the light of our lives, and this is because you bring such joy and happiness into, what can sometimes be, tough times. Often, I can't believe the things that you can do, or say, because I am just not yet used to having someone copy things after only seeing them one time! The speed that you learn things is unbelievable. It makes me so very very proud to see you loving the world.

You are a very kind hearted and gentle soul who just seems to know when people need a hand. I am so proud of the fact that you are growing up as someone who accepts people regardless of their abilities. I love that you help your brother sometimes, and I also love that you wrestle each other (and neither of you take any mercy either-typical!). What really fills my heart with pride is the fact that you have learnt lots of Makaton signs. You sign words and say them to Ryley in particular, it's like you know that he will understand you better that way.

So Braeden, I hope this year is lots of fun for you. I hope you continue to love life as much as you do! You set a great example for us all!! And I am proud beyond proud that together we still have a wonderful breastfeeding relationship. It has been, and still is, bloody hard work. But I know that one day in the near future you won't want breastmilk, and I am not quite sure how I will feel about that!

Your Dad and I picked this song for you:


The lyrics:
     MY WISH- Rascal Flatts
I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,

and each road leads you where you want to go,
and if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
and if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' 'til you find the window,
if it's cold outside,
show the world the warmth of your smile,
but more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can haul,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
all the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
and you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
and always give more then you take.
But more than anything, Yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can haul,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
