Today is your half birthday -- you are two and a half today. And oh my ears and whiskers, how big you are getting! I can hardly believe my eyes: you are growing right in front of me.
I don't remember being two and a half, because it was a very long time ago, but I bet it was a whole lot of fun. I know it's a whole lot fun watching you being this age, and terribly exciting, too -- you're always running off somewhere, to pick a yellow flower or read a new book or put together another puzzle. It's exhausting for me, sometimes, because I can't always keep up with you, but I really enjoy trying to catch up.
I hope that today is twice as awesome as yesterday was, and that all your tomorrows are doubly so. I want every day to be awesome, because you are awesome. You are so very, very awesome. And I love you.
Onward and upward we grow, kiddo. Now blow out the candle, my dear, and make your wish come true. A very merry un-birthday to you!
