Little Bean, you have enriched our lives so much in the last two years. You are our full-speed-ahead firecracker. Your smile literally radiates to every person you meet and your heart is so big. You kiss, hug, and snuggle your favorite people, look up to your sister, cling to Mommy, and love to play tag and monster with Daddy. You are so incredibly smart and that intelligence has helped you learn to manipulate me into a big pile of mush. You absolutely love animals and use our dogs as pillows. Your favorite words are "Nope," "That's mine," "Pool time!" and "Sadie." Your favorite color is orange, you love your baby dolls, swimming, school, books, the iPad, sandboxes, and running like a banshee through the house. Your favorite foods are spaghetti, watermelon, cucumbers, and strawberries. You won't turn down pizza or yogurt, either. Two years ago, you were born three weeks early, with a head full of black hair. You have grown and changed so much and we fall more deeply in love with you each day.
Here's that infectious little smile:
