Dear cuddly and passionate 2 year old River,
You are the sweetest little guy, and are a lover. You like to spend the first 30 minutes of your day wrapped in someone arms drinking a milk. You love your milk. You have BIG emotions, and let us know exactly how you are feeling. Whether it be screaming at the top of your lungs clenching your hands, or throwing your head back with open mouthed belly laughter!
You are oh so chatty, and we are amazed by the elaborate phrases that come from your little toddler mouth (in that loud growly voice of yours). Your curls are precious, and you are such a charmer. You adore your big sissy and will do just about anything to play with her (dolls, dancing, dress up, and playing the baby).
You’re crazy about making silly faces, playing with cars, going to home depot with Dad, twirling Momma’s hair, wearing exclusively Crocs, your nigh night (pacifier), quack quacks (ducks), striped blanket, Grandma, and Terra.
You are our family’s soft place. The one who reminds us all how lovely it is to hug, say please and thank you, hold hands, and kiss more often. Bless your little soft heart. You are Mommy and Daddy’s favorite surprise;)
You woke up to your special birthday bike, and a few presents from the family. You squealed when you saw your bike, and drank your milk while sitting on it!
Daddy arranged a special outing to Bonkers with the Howland Family! I was recovering from my tonsillectomy and missed you, but knew you were having a blast. I heard that the Dads had the best time “playing”.
