Today is Brooks’ 2nd Birthday! Woo! I can’t believe I have a two year old – the past two years have been a bit of a blur at times, but they have been the most amazing time ever. I love my little man so much – he made me a mom and he’s such a sweet, fun, thoughtful, silly, fearless, energetic little guy. Can’t imagine live without him – he makes everything so much better, not to mention he’s the best big brother around!
So I’ve seen a few interview birthday posts going around so I thought it would be fun to do this as well. I thought it would be much easier than it actually turned out to be – Brooks is very vocal and has so many words, but the process of actually getting him to sit still to answer a few questions without running away or just acting silly was much harder than I thought. I have been asking him these questions over the course of the past few days. Here’s how it all went down:
1) What is something that Mommy says to you?
Happy Birthday. I love you. Baby crying. No no no. Planet
