As I think back on the past two years with my baby boy, I catch myself holding back some tears. Tears of pure joy, pure happiness, and pure love for this incredible little boy.
I feel so honored that God chose me to be Rocco’s mama on this day two years ago.
And that he chose Vinnie to be his daddy.
Rocco shines his light so brightly in our lives and in everyone he meets. His smile lights up the room, his laugh is contagious and his personality is one of a kind. It is incredible to think that our little two-year-old boy contains so many amazing traits already. And it makes me want to slow down time!
I know as these little ones grow they bring new challenges with them, but I love taking in all of the blessings and taking on all of the bumps. I have learned, for myself, there is nothing more rewarding than being a mama.
From new sentences to new hockey tricks, Rocco never ceases to amaze us.
However, my absolute favorite time of the day is tucking him in at night, saying prayers, singing songs, snuggling and hearing his sweet voice whisper “love you too, mama” as I leave the room.
A very happy second birthday to our smart, handsome, silly and loving little boy. We are so proud of you and love you so much, Bub!
