Happy birthday, Liam!

Our beautiful, wonderful, special boy. You amaze us and thrill us and make us laugh and make us cry. We have loved you since the day you were born. Since the doctor exclaimed, "you delivered a toddler!" and Daddy cried, "he's purple and he has a cone head!" Since you grabbed onto Daddy's finger and immediately stopped crying. Since you locked eyes with Mama and told her everything she needed to know. You made time stand still and changed our lives forever. Your birthday is a celebration for all of us.

Every age, every stage, every day with you has been our favorite. We keep thinking that you're perfect, that nothing could top exactly what you're doing right this moment. Then the clock ticks and you amaze us again.

You're two. You're bright and curious and imaginative and creative. I doubt you'll ever find time to be terrible. There are too many songs to sing and clues to find and pictures to draw and books to read. Much too much to learn and do. Such a big boy, such a big year!
