Has it really been two months since we've written you a letter. The past few months have been a little hectic. We've traveled a lot and have done so many things together which hopefully make up for the lack of letters.
You have truly come into your own lately. Your sense of humor is coming out and you keep us laughing non stop. Now that you are officially 2 1/2 you definitely have your "terrible two" moments but they are few and far between. There are moments when you refuse your afternoon naps which can add to the madness. You have also decided that now would be a good time to get two more molars. Just when I thought we were through with the worst of the teething.
Celebrating holidays with you have become so much fun. You are finally starting to understand what is going on which makes the celebrations much more special. You now associate birthdays with cake, candles and you love to sing Happy Birthday whenever you see one or the other.
Throughout all of our travels we have seen you blossom. It is incredible to watch the twinkle and magic in your eyes when you explore new things. You have become so adventerous and have started to come out of your comfort zone. There is no end to the things you will do and try, and traveling with you has become such a joy.
You spent some time with not only your grandparents, but also your great-grandparents. It was amazing to see how much love you had for them even though you hadn't seen them in over a year. You would walk with your grandfather (bunico) hand in hand and would play football with your great-grandfather. You spent time in the country and adapted as if you had spent your entire life on a farm.
I hope that when you grow up you remember all of the love that surrounded you these past few months.
You have truly grown into your role as a big brother and you have become Noah's protector. I love watching you express your feelings and emotions through actions. You hug and kiss him when you think no one is watching and you always ask for him whenever he isn't around. I can only hope that you two will grow to be great friends.
Your personality is absolutely amazing and we can hardly wait to see how you continue to grow. You are truly have such an amazing heart.
We love you.
