Happy Birthday, Baby Boy!

Dear Grant,

Wow.  You are TWO.  TWO YEARS OLD.  Sometimes, that just doesn't seem possible.  And other times, we can't even remember what life was like without you.

Did I ever really have a life before you?  I certainly never knew joy in the same way.  And yet, it feels so natural, like you were a part of us all along.  And in a way, I guess you were.

Over the last year, you've come so far, amazing us every single day.  You're so incredibly smart - you know all of the alphabet and numbers by site, and can point to letters and numbers and tell us what they are.  You know your colors, and constantly bombard us with factual statements about what color things are, or what an object is.  "Trashcan!"  "Dog!"  "Diaper!"  "Crocs!"  "Mail!"

The terrible twos haven't really hit you in full force, and for that, we are thankful.  You do occasionally melt down, but it's never for long, and you certainly make up for it with all the hugs and snuggles.

If only you could stay our sweet little boy forever.

Today, we plan to celebrate with cupcakes and well-wishes from lots of family and friends who couldn't share your day in person, but definitely do in spirit.  You are loved by so many, Grant.

We love you, Grant Pants, and look forward to many more years of wonderment and fun that little boys bring.


PS...  These are shots of you playing with your new toys, but you refused to look at the camera.  Oh well.  Guess you're a Harris after all.  :)


  1. Happy birthday Grant!! I am so glad that your mom has shared your growth with us...can't wait to see what the next year brings!!

  2. Happy Birthday, Grant. Grandpa and Nonna send hugs and kisses and wish we were there. I can't wait to play with your new toys with you. See you soon
