Two Years with Alvie Bean
Alvie! You are two years old today. Such a very big boy. *sigh* Where has all the time gone?
It’s hard to believe that it wasn’t yesterday that you looked like this.
It’s crazy that it wasn’t yesterday that you were just learning to sit on your own:
Starting your first job as a college professor (PhD in Timey Wimey Wibbly Wobbly stuff):
Being excited and puzzled by snow.
You are two. You talk all the time, except when you don’t. You love to run everywhere. You are so very, very active. You are jumping with TWO FEET LEAVING THE GROUND. You love to sing and read and color.
You love dinosaurs and trains and hats.
You are goofy and mischievous.
You are so very polite. You know when to use please, thank you, excuse me, [you’re] welcome, no thank you, hello, and good bye. You are such a charmer. Except, of course, when you’re not.
You are so physical. You play HARD!
You are so brave, and never hesitate to try new things.
You are my favorite thing. I’m sorry I won’t see you today, but I hope you enjoy those dinosaur cupcakes!
The last two years have been wonderful/scary/hard/delightful/intense/terrific. Thanks for being the best Bean in the land.
I love you.
