He's Officially 2!!!

Oh my goodness, our little WILD man is officially 2 years old today!!! I can't help but be nostalgic today as I think back of these past 2 years. It has been the most amazing journey of our lives. Ramsey is way more then just a product of Cope and I's love for each other. He is truly his own little person with his own ideas, his own personality, and I stand in awe of what a little man he is growing into.
He has taught me so much over these past 2 years. He has pushed me past what I thought were my limits. He has totally done a makeover on my priorities. He gives me such a sense of purpose and he brings me more joy then I can measure.

Mother hood is WAY different then I ever imagined. No book or experienced person could have prepared me for how hard it is or how wonderful it is at the same time. I didn't know you had to pull energy, strength, and sanity from places in your being that you didn't know existed. I do know having Ramsey has made me more at peace in my own life. I know, without a doubt, that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

I love being his Mommy. I thank God every single day for our WILD child. Ramsey is simply the BEST!!!! What a treat!!!!

Happy birthday, Ramsey. I still can't believe he is already two. I remember reading your posts when he was just a newbie. Goodness, how time flies. You're an awesome mom and lil (big) Ramsey is so lucky to have you!

Happy Birthday to Ramsey! I wish we could have come to the party, but the Army wouldn't allow that. We look forward to continuing to see Ramsey grow!
