he turns 2 today ~ dallas, georgia child photographer

I cannot believe my baby boy is turning 2 today.  Where did the time go?  The past 2 years have been the happiest and quickest years of my life it seems.  He is undoubtedly the greatest thing that God has allowed me to be a part of and I thank Him everyday for choosing us to be Luke’s parents.  A child is truly a blessing from God and today I am thankful for all that Luke has brought to our lives. 

This age is so much fun.  He’s talking all the time, repeating most of the words we say (or at least attempting to), loves to dance, loves all things Sesame Street and especially Elmo, loves music, an animal lover from day one with a special place in his heart for his big “brother” Ace (our 5 year old Weim).  He’s a mama’s boy right now, but I see that quickly fading as he turns into a big boy and wants to do everything thing Daddy does.  Some of my very favorite moments are walking into his room in the morning or when he wakes up from his nap & seeing his sweet smile & hearing “Hi, Mama”.  He makes sure we never miss a blessing before a meal and asks several times a day to “Call Da-da” (or Papa or Nana or Grandmommy… all of whom he adores).  He’s all boy and into everything… he keeps me on my toes but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Happy 2nd birthday to my happy boy… you are a gift from God.
