turning two

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.

Lots of love from Grammie . ..

  1. In two weeks our two year old and his nearly-one-year-old brother will arrive from Ontario. These little fellows are, unbelievably, more fun than their daddy - or perhaps its that this Nana is more relaxed than she was years ago! Happy Birthday to your little farmhand - have fun Grammy!!!

  2. Happy birthday to your lil farmhand...where did 24 months go? He sounds like one terrific two-year old!

    I'm laughing at Pondside's comment...that grands are more fun than their parents were. She may just be right...or else we are more fun than we once were.
