Tonight we went to dinner at Razoo's
... hooray, Lent.
While at dinner, we realized that this exact night two years ago we were at Razoo's
as well. How can you not smile at such a sweet memory? My mom, my husband, my sweet little girl, all eating their share of spicy goodness with me so that I could maybe just maybe meet my tiny little baby the next day after my doctor's appointment... to which I did...
Two years ago, I sat at a table with my family without a clue that I was a mere 17 hours away from meeting Mr. Handsome.Two years and a lifetime ago.
Now don't get me wrong... I cannot believe that my little boy is two years old. It has come and gone soooo
quickly. Two is definitely not baby any more. Two means that you now have an opinion about everything and each day is an adventure to explore this great big world around you. Two means double the chaos, laughter, naked jaunts down the hall and definitely double the noise. For as quickly as we arrived at two years, I seem to have a hard time remembering what life was like before Gabriel.Well, maybe I could if I really tried... but why would I want to?
Because, you see... life with a Gabriel means that at any given moment in the day you get to receive
massive chocolate faced kisses (although sometimes the chocolate is substituted for dirt).
Days with a Gabriel are spent jumping on the bed, chasing trucks on the highway and countless explanations
of why it is not okay to eat rocks. A Gabriel look can mean so many things. Most days it is a filled with a nice combination of gosh I am cute but wow, I am totally sneaky too. I could take a lifetime more of looking into those beautiful blue eyes.
So now we embark on this new year of potty training, bicycle
riding and preschool attending all the while locking in our hearts as many memories as we can cram in. And with my perfect little love chunk that sure is a lot of happy moments...
Little boy, you bring us more joy than ever imaginable. We just love you so much! Happy Birthday!!!
sappy happy montage? You bet...*don't forget to pause the music on the side...
