My baby: We can SO relate to Katherine Heigls letter to her son

Katherine Heigl shared the sweetest letter to her little boy.

Today marks his second birthday, and the mum cannot believe how quickly Joshua is growing up.

“It is this ‘Big Guy’s’ Birthday today...At two years of age I can still manage to get a moment of morning snuggles before he’s on the go for the day,” she wrote.

“Busy, busy, busy until he passes out in his crib with a fist full of lovies at night. It’s the lovies...the reaching for me when he’s sad, or lonely, or angry or hurt.

“The uncontrollable laughter raspberries on his belly elicits. The 400th repeating of ‘No.’ The sheer joy of slides, bath time, sweets and his fawning sisters.

“It is all this that reminds me he’s still just a baby. A big baby, but my baby.”

The actress shared an adorable photo of her son smiling in a t-shirt that reads ‘big guy’. The two are having the best morning, cuddling and laughing together.

Katherine feels as most of us mums do - time is flying by and our kids seem to grow in between every glance.

“This boy went from a newborn latched at my breast to a beast of a toddler almost too big to carry in 730 days.

“I’ve had my moments of fear...that I can’t seem to control the slipperiness of time. The catapulting nature of change.”

The Grey’s Anatomy star chooses to focus on ‘the now’, treasuring each moment with her little one as the pass.

“This is my boy now. Now is extraordinary. Now is forever locked inside of me...until tomorrow.

“Happy Birthday, my silly Stinkews”, she concluded. “May your nows be forever full of peace, joy, Just like Now!”

Little Joshua and his mum not only have a special bond but he is the image of Katherine as well.

We hope they have the best day celebrating this birthday milestone.
