Dear Alexander

Dear Alexander

It doesn't seem 5 minutes ago that I was writing to you on your first birthday and now here we are and you are turning two tomorrow. How time flies.
You have changed so much this year, although I still call you my baby you really are a little boy now. Running around, climbing everything and causing chaos everywhere you go. You certainly know how to keep me on my toes. 
You have always been full of personality and that is really shining through now, you love to entertain and make us laugh. 
You may not speak much just yet but you know exactly how to get your point across, you're stubborn and your favourite word is no said emphatically with a shake of the head. 
Your favourite person is still definitely your big brother, you want to be everywhere he is, you do as he asks and you copy everything he does and he has recently discovered that he can boss you around and you do as he says, let's see how long that lasts! You play together so sweetly, having pretend picnics and making puzzles though of course can quickly go from playing to arguing! 
You are affectionate, you love cuddling up under a blanket with me to look at books or getting into our bed at night and sleeping cuddled right up against one of us so close that we are like one person. It may not be the most comfortable way to sleep but i know those nights won't last forever and i'll miss it when it stops.

Happy 2nd birthday Raffy Roo, I know that this next year will see just as many changes and I can't wait to be part of them.
