Alexander turned two a week ago. I can't even believe two years have gone by since I held him in my arms for the first time. The last two years have been such a gift + joy. I am truly so grateful and thank the universe each and every day for blessing me with his life.
My baby is now a boy! Alexander is so full of joy and life. His energy is soo contagious. He is a chatter box, he has a huge personality, he is so playful, and loves to laugh + have fun. He is also the sweetest, most loving and kind little human I know. He is curious, smart, and determined. He is constantly repeating new words and phases, asking questions like "what's that", "is that a plane ... school bus??".
I love that he loves to cuddle with his Mama. He even gets a little feisty when Daddy hugs me and doesn't include him for a family hug. Did I mention family hugs are the best these days? Yup. They are --specially when Alexander says "hugs". He is a great hugger and his besos (kisses) are extra sweet.
Alexander loves trains, planes, cars, school buses and sports (typical boy!?), but he seems to favor hockey... I always knew he was a wild one at heart. He loves pizza, pasta, fruits, and broccoli. He loves to run around, ride the Tonka truck down the drive way, he loves walks with Mami, being tickled, and going to the park. He also loves loves books, instruments, and music.
Letter to Alexander
"Alexander, your birthday was extra special this year. Lola + Papa came up to visit, we went to the zoo and you had pasta for lunch. You were the life of the restaurant, you celebrated, sang happy birthday and toasted "cheers" over and over. You ran around in an open field... wild and free. You had ice cream cake for the first time and you really enjoyed it. We laughed and hugged and kissed. We sang and danced and played. You really enjoyed yourself and so did we.
We celebrated your birthday times two. Abuy, Nona, Beba, Tita, Yandel and Elena also came to celebrate you turning twoo twoo. Tita baked a choo choo train just for you and you loved spending time with everyone."
