happy second birthday to my handsome baby boy, samson rex! the last two years with you have been a dream. i love your curious and adventurous personality, your infectious smile, your insistent determination and spirited love for life. i want to bottle you up and keep you two right here and now at this age forever. you are just so much fun. you are hard to stay mad at (even when you intentionally knock over full glasses of water like it’s your job) and it’s impossible to not just pull you close and cover you in kisses 5 billions times each day.  i am so so thankful for you, and for the joy you bring not only into your mama’s life, but your papa’s and your sister’s as well.  we hope you never forget what love we all feel for you. and we hope you always live your life with that contagious energy you seem to never run out of from dawn until bedtime every day.  samson, i love you so much it hurts. thank you for loving me back. happy birthday, my handsome little man.

i love you so, mama

    Samson is such a handsome little boy! Happy Birthday to him! My little man just turned 2 too, such a bittersweet thing for me. I’m proud of him every day but certainly miss the tiny baby I had. He brings me joy every single day, I don’t think there’s even one day I haven’t laughed since he was born. It seems like your little man is just the same! What a happy looking boy. Hope he had a lovely day.
