57: Another year has come and gone. You are growing so fast.
58: 2 YEARS OLD | SO BIG
60: My Sweet Baby This year has been a monumental year for you. I have learned so much from you as you have grown into a lovable toddler. My sweet baby is growing up, yet you just turned two years old. Life seems to be dashing by, which is why I cherish every moment I spend with you. You are quite the "active-social butterfly." Always wanting to go to the parks and play with friends, kicking balls, throwing balls and almost catching balls :) Because you are so active, taking you to story-time at the library was always an adventure as you always wanted to be moving. One time, you stood up and danced in front of everyone for five minutes. Memories like those will always touch my heart and stick with me forever. Your vocabulary is incredible. You were saying full length sentences before you turned two. Your memory astounds me. I took you grocery shopping with me and mentioned we need to get hot dogs and you guided me to the spot of the hot dogs. I was amazed. It was then that I realized I have a genius on my hands. At 18 months, you became a BIG brother. As I left for the hospital, I was overwhelmed with emotions because I did not want to leave and didn't know how you were going to react to a little brother. I didn't want you to feel as though someone had taken your place. When your brother was born, I instantly thought of the day you were born as you both looked identical to one another. I didn't even stay in the hospital 24 hours because I wanted to rush home to see you and introduce you to your new brother. Uncle Brian, aunts Shannon and Ginny brought you home and the second you saw Kaleb, you smashed your face into my shoulder and did not want to look at him. It was 15 minutes when you finally wanted to see him. You walked closer to him and threw a ball right at his face. I knew then that I was in trouble. Well, six months later, you love Kaleb. You are the best BIG brother and Kaleb looks up to you so much. My prayers are that you grow up to be the best of friends and always look out for one another. Braden- I hope one day you understand how much I love and adore you. I want you to never forget how much you are loved..Jesus, myself, your father, grandma (from Ohio), grandma and papa, aunties and uncles and the list goes on. I look forward to many more amazing moments with you. Continue to share your smile with others...it is contagious. Love, mommy | BIG | OTHERS | in yourself
61: Your family we will always be... | ... till the end!
