My dearest Sebastian,
Another year has passed, and now you are two years old… and it’s so hard to keep up with you and all of your changes! Though I am still eagerly awaiting your first few words, you are already running around, dancing, clapping, drawing, and making mischief.
I want you to know how much I love you, and that I am immensely proud of you. I keep some pictures of you on my desk at work and use them as screensavers on my computer (which I frequently show off to my students at the school). Sometimes I can’t help but find myself just staring at your photos in wonder. It seems like yesterday (not two years ago) that you were just a sweet, innocent little butterball in my arms. And now?… Now you are practically a young man! Incredible!
You are sweet, loveable, adorable, and such a happy little boy. You grow more and more handsome every day! I can’t predict what the future will hold, but all I can hope is that you will continue to be happy, healthy, and know how loved you are by so many people. I want you to know that, for every challenge this world may bring you, whenever it might be, I will always be there for you, every step of the way.
I can’t wait to see what changes the next year (and the years after that) will bring. Happy 2nd birthday, Sebastian Gunther! I love you so much!
