Happy Birthday Alex!!!!

My oh my how things have changed in two years!!!!!
And how they have changed in ONE! You lost some weight........You have favorite toys, like Tad

and your fridge toys. You love to press the buttons, and spin around on the kitchen floor (original 1986 floor!)

You learned how to crawl!

And even got over your grass sensory issues, well, with pants on.

You love to stand and cruise, and CLAP



You love to sit under trees and watch and feel the wind.

You love to have your picture taken

Because you must know how special you are.

Yes, I think you know!

You must have your glow bug, and "B" when we tuck you in for bed.

Oh, I think you know how special you are!

You love to play peek a boo!

Happy BIRTHDAY Alex, today you turn TWO!!!!!

and since its your birthday I will brag on you:
not only did you learn to crawl, cruise, and explore in the grass.
You began to eat! So good tube feedings have been cut back.
You babble, only when you are in the mood.
You love to read books.
You love to be cuddled.
You love to go bye bye, and walk into the house. (it actually makes you giggle)
You love to take a bath, hearing the bath water sends you straight to the tub.
You put in, and stack on top.
You rearrange your pillow until its just right before you go to sleep at night. (the benefits to a video monitor)
You have come so far from the day you were born. We love you so much Alex for just who you are! We are so thankful you are in our lives!

Happy Birthday Alex, we join your mom and family in celebrating YOU. Your personality is shining through in the photos. Expecially of the one of you grinning in the sunshine. As your mom described all your achievements this year, I was reminded of a flower bud unfurling each petal - and a wondrous flower emerging.

Those pictures made me cry! I want to live right beside you, have you and Alex (and all the other boys too) in my life every day!

I love that Alex! I love that he is so similar to AnnaKate. I love that his mama made it to Holland and we get to be there together.

Happy Birthday Big Boy!

Hi Alex,
Today is your special day. You are 2 years old and 2 years more precious than before. You have made your footprints on our hearts and we will never be the same for knowing you. Your special smile and the joy your bring is something we cherish every day. You have come so far and you have more surprises in store for us too. We are blessed to have you in the family and we love you more than words can express. You've taught us how to be brave and how to persevere.

Well Bird, how was your birthday? Nathan, Bella, and I were away for a few days and haven't been around to keep up on all of our brothers and sisters. You have learned so much over this past year, I am sooooo impressed. Your Mommy and Daddy have been working awfully hard too. They sure love you lots. I can't wait to see what you do over this next year. Give your mommy a big squeeze for me!
