Happy Birthday Brady!

two years ago today i woke up exhausted, scared and excited. i had been trying for a day to get you to come into this world with no cooperation from you. the day progressed and you still did not want to come. finally after two days of labor we decided to do a c-section. the anticipation of you finally arriving was more than we could take anymore. as they wheeled me down the hall to the operating room i wasn't scared of being cut open, okay well maybe a little, i was scared of becoming a parent. i had no idea of what to expect. i prayed for a healthy baby and there you were. you were so tiny and perfect. today you turned two. my how quickly the days go by. i felt like crying most of the day. how could my little baby be two already. i have begun to forget little things about you from when you were a baby. time has a way of replacing memories with new ones, no matter how hard you try to hold on to all of them. i know the memories i will keep are the ones that i am supposed to. you are such an amazing little man. you can make me laugh, cry and angry all in a matter of two minutes. you are the sweetest thing i have ever seen in the morning as you slowly try to wake up to start your day and the biggest wiggle worm at night as you try to fall asleep. we are so blessed to have you in our life. i cherish everyday that i get to spend with you brady. you are my little jelly, p-pie, peanut and little man. i love you sooooooooo much. happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Lil' Smith. I have watched you grow in the 10 months I have known you and you are an amazing little boy. You are a lucky kiddo to have a mom and dad who adore you and a baby brother who looks up to you. Your buddy Dobs lights up when he says your name or sees you and I can say without a doubt you and your family are having a wonderfully positive impact on my little boy's second year of life!
XOXO Christy
