Lil' Farm Hand. . .
today you are TWO!
You have changed from a baby to a boy.
There are so many things I love about you.
I love the way you laugh from your tummy . . .just like your Daddy.
I love the way you've mastered drinking out of a big cup. . .like you've done it your whole life.
I love the way you love your Grampa. .
I always knew you would. . .he is pretty fun.
I love how you talk only German at your Omi' and Opa's house. .
but do us the favour of speaking mostly English . . .here.
Grampa especially appreciates that.
I love how you love your little sister.
She's learned to enjoy your bear hugs..
I love the way you do all the actions to the songs we sing . . .
and shout out the important words.
I pray you will always believe the words of your favorite Song . . .
My God is so BIG (arms high). .
He's so strong and so Mighty (making muscles with your arms) . .
there's nothing my God can not do (as you shake your finger with conviction) .. .
for YOU (pointing at me) . .
The mountains are his (arms above your head touching hands). . .
The rivers are his (fingers wiggling in front of you) .. .
The stars are his handiwork too (fingers above your head punching little stars)
My God is so Big. .He's so strong and so Mighty. . there's nothing my God cannot do!
Mostly though. . .
I love you just because you are you.
I had nearly forgotten how fun little boys can be.
