Ten-Ten! Today's the day. My Alexander Elliot is two! Two years old. What a blessed two years they have been. Brian and I were changed in the most remarkable way on the day we were given our Elisabeth Adelaide, and then for the Lord to do it again with the gift of Xander - magnificent! Little man, you are adored by dad, mom, Libby, and even Barns. And in honor of the past two years and the delight you have brought your family and friends, I've put together a list -

Two Things I Love About You.

1. i love the sweet sweet way you look at me and say, "hi mama" when you wake up in the morning.

2. i love your oh so soft skin, especially on your cheeks and your little neck. (you're still my baby for a few more days, i can love that about you.)

Okay, two? that's silly. I have a few more.

3. i love the way you adore your big sister, repeat her to learn new expressions, giggle and play with her and miss her while she's gone.

4. i love how unbelievably agreeable you are. i cannot believe how agreeable you are.

5. i love that you are potty trained!

6. i love that you say "bye-bye barns, bye-bye house" when we leave, and that you exhale and murmer, "hooome" when we pull into the driveway.

7. i love your silly voice. your deep silly voice that you throw around to entertain us.

8. i love your memories of yellowstone.

9. i love that you love to sing, and you make up songs and make me make up songs.

10. i love that you were gifted to us, and that by the grace of our God we might be used to teach you his will and his ways and the wonder of his grace.

there is so much to love about you, sweet xander. your amazing manners (you have the best manners of anyone in the family), your fashion sense (you are a really well dressed kid ;), your thin but curly blond hair.... and more..... I hope you enjoyed these special days of celebration of your little life!
