//A Day Older//

Elliot:

You turned two a couple days ago.

I feel as if the rising and setting of the sun opened a whole new world.  It was a mere day, yet you are different.  Different than the day before. You have a new look in your eye, as if to tell me you are not a baby anymore.  I see the gentle look of wisdom and the mischievous glisten of independence.  I love it.  I love you and your fierceness- the way you run and fight your way to a day older.  You are going to accomplish so much.  I love you.  I love you. I wuv yah! (as you say)

We went to the zoo and you stopped and stared at every animal you saw.  I like to think that you talk to the birds because you have been copying their sounds since you were barely one.  You call back.  You point at every bird you see.
