Do you ever just stop and think, where has the time gone?? My once sweet tiny little baby has now grown into a tantrum throwing 2 year old! But he’s cute so I guess that makes it tolerable.

Aside from his occasional snack of crayons and racing his Tonka trucks under my feet, his third favorite thing to do is read books. Yes, i know, he’s two. He has no idea what the books physically say but he loves to babble along with me and point to the various pictures.

For his birthday this year, we customized Hooray Heroes Birthday Book . It was so fun to make Brandtley’s custom avatar and choose which pages we wanted to include in his book.

During the customization process we picked 10 different characters to include. They each have their own dedicated page with a special birthday wish for our sweet boy.

Not only is this book absolutely adorable, it makes me cry every time I read it. I’m sure you mamas know, there are just some books that pull at your heart strings and embody everything that you wish you could say. With every page comes a gentle reminder. You are smart. You are strong. You are always loved.
