Happy 2nd Birthday, Tucker Kreg!

Dearest Tucker:

Today you turn two!  Thinking of all the milestones you’ve already met in your short two years, it shouldn’t surprise me that two years have already flown by!  But it just doesn’t seem possible. You’re not my baby anymore, you’re a full-blown toddler and before I know it you’ll be all grown up.  You are a joy to be around every day and I am so thankful to be your mommy. 

You’re the “little brother” in our home but you don’t let that stop you from doing ANYTHING you set your mind to.  You potty trained yourself 6 months ago, you talk in full paragraphs about whatever you’re thinking about, you play with your brother and his friends, sometimes you eat more than all of us, you’re a budding little athlete who is going to show us all up one of us these days, and you don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. 

What I love most about you is your heart of gold.  It has been such a joy to watch your personality develop and as competitive as you are, you are that much more compassionate.  You’re the first to ask someone if they’re okay and what will make them happy.  Your hugs and kisses are given generously and always accompanied by a contagious smile! Our Lord has amazing things in store for you and I can’t wait to watch them unravel.  I know He will use you to further His kingdom and bless His people.  My prayer is that you will allow Him to work in you and through you and that you will feel an unsurpassing joy in serving Him with all your heart. 

I hope there are many days and nights full of our cuddles left in our future because I just can’t get enough of them!  You are a delight and I thank our God daily for blessing our family with your sweet spirit!  Happy birthday, baby!  I love you more than words could ever, ever say!
