Happy Birthday Baby Chops

Our baby Matthew is two. Oh, I already miss you as a baby. I love you so much. I made you some Ga (anything that’s super yummy in this family is Ga). I made you some oreo cookies. I think you liked them.

Num num Matthew. Here is your Ga.

Happy Birthday Big Boy!
Things I love about you right now: You kiss everything… you can look outside and see that it is dark and give the dark a kiss. You still grab your blue blankie and put your chops on it and so a little scream for fun. You are very serious about reading books… I think you are going to be very smart because you are so attentive. Lastly, you are so considerate and have such good manners. Goodness, you say “scuse me” about everything you do. You are such a good boy, love to be held and are such a joy in our lives.
