TWO

Precious Henderson - you are 2 years old!!!! Where does the time go? You have brought so much joy to our family that sometimes I can hardly hold it in!!!!

You are a momma's boy - the 1 out of 3 of my children who just can't seem to get enough of me!!!! You are a cuddler - you love to be rocked and give hugs and kisses. You light up a room with your big blue eyes and curly blond hair!!!!!

I knew you were special from the beginning - you've always had a light in your eyes that shines so bright. God has a great plan for you and I can't wait to be a part of it and watch it unfold!!!!




You like to eat and eat and eat - much like your big sister - but after what we've been through with your big brother - that is the best thing EVER!!!!!



You adore Emma Claire - always asking about "Sissy" nearly as much as you ask about "Momma"!!!! You are very smart and obedient (most of the time) - you are nearly completely potty trained, wearing underwear all the time except bed time, though you do have accidents during "Playtime" - on the playground and soccer fields - I guess you think if there's no potty around, your pants will do just fine!!!!!



You and Wilson have a special friendship, being only 19 months apart!!! You can go at it, like most brothers can, but I also see those silly, fun moments where you both are completely lost in laughter and loving each other. I pray everyday that Wilson will be your best friend for life and nothing will come between the 2 of you. If there's one thing I hope and pray for all 3 of you, it's that you each will love each other and protect each other and never tear one another down.


You and Wilson will no doubtedly get into much trouble and make many messes (as is already evident) in your lifetime. You are teaching me all about grace and forgiveness and unconditional love and about laughing at the days behind and the days to come (from Proverbs 31). Surely laughter (and prayer) is the only thing that gets us through the day sometimes!!!!!











You are already quite obsessed with baseball and I'll find you in the backyard many days putting the ball on the tee and hitting it over and over again. You hold your hands backwards, but that is something we can work on later - you still have a MEAN swing and throw!!!!!


Swinging is one of your favorite activities!!! You like nothing more than for me to push you while you say "high, high!" If I'm not available to push you, you'll find some other way to swing - and you can swing for hours!!!!!!


Happy Birthday Henderson!!!! I love you SO much and am proud to call you my son!!!!
