Happy 2nd Birthday Arjun!

 

Arjun turned two on Mother’s day and like every mother out there, I am wondering just how my baby got so big so quickly!

We threw a small party at home, and given that the bouncy house formula worked so well for Asha’s birthday, we repeated the same for Arjun. Family, friends, and neighbors all came to celebrate and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to show him how much he is loved!

Being around Arjun feels like popping happy pills, except it’s legal and not frowned upon! The kindness in his soul is contagious and his laugh is a constant reminder of just how good this life is. He says the randomest funniest things (“mama I love coffee” ) and knows just how to melt your heart (“I dreamed of you last night mama”). Singing is his favorite activity next to trains and books.

To his sister he is the best sidekick who is always up for secret missions, book readings, and trouble of all sizes. In him I already see a determined spirit who will do a lot of good in this world.

Happy Birthday my juni, I love you and wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
