Happy Birthday Jackson!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't believe that two years have passed since the day you were born. With all the trials you have had I am so proud of what you have accomplished by two. Here is a list of the accomplishments you have made.

you have at least a 25 word vocabulary,
you say please for the things you want (actually it is more like peeezzzz),
you have taken your first steps
you have 11 teeth in your mouth
you say cheeeeese every time there is a camera or a cell phone around
you have learned peoples names
you know how to color match with some toys
you know animal sounds and some body parts
you love to push buttons, including mommy's
you have quite the attitude at two
you throw fits when you don't get your way
you have a mind of your own and you are not afraid to use it
you are still not a big fan of eating solid foods, but you have been willing to try some,
you have reached 24 lbs, which was the goal weight for your transplant
we found out that your daddy is a match and can give you his kidney
you have been a trooper through two hip surgeries this year and 14 weeks in a full body cast
you have learned to play the drums
you love to dance to the music while mommy watches: so you think you can dance
you say eey like a pirate for yes
but the answer to every question we ask you is usually no
you like to watch sport center with daddy and love the baseball highlight
you love to help your daddy when he has his tools out
you like to tell us that elmo is on your diaper
you say "uh oh" when you drop something
you love to cuddle with mommy and read books
you are a great big brother and love to find Avenlea's paci whenever she is upset
you give her kisses and tell her you love her too.

I am sure there are many more things you do....but these are the highlights that stick out in my head today. You are a courageous, loving and fantastic two year old! I can't wait to see what you accomplish in the next year. I am so blessed that God entrusted me to be your mom.

Happy Birthday Baby boy!!
