To T at 2.5 Years

Dear T, I know I always say that you have grown so much, but these last 6 months you have really shown amazing growth.  I think the year between 2 and 3 years is usually a transition time from toddler to child, and I definitely see that in you.  But the biggest difference is in…

Happy Birthday, Little Man!  You are a year old already!  You are very different than you were a year ago.  You are walking (sometimes very fast), climbing, and making lots of noise. You have a few “words” – Mama, Dada “RaRa” for K – and you make your opinions known.  You are especially good at…
