I can't believe it was time to have a birthday party for our TWO YEAR OLD! Wow, these last two years have gone by so fast! We haven't taken him to his 2 year appointment yet, but I know he's around 24 pounds. He's finally gaining a little weight, but he's gonna lose it all with how much more active he's been lately! He still doesn't talk a lot. He says: pa (dad), gi (again), no, bye, go, keys, wide (ride), and lots of noises that mean different things. I'm trying to keep working on talking with him without getting upset, so hopefully this kid talks soon! He's really been jibbering a lot the last few weeks, so I think it's coming. Plus spending the whole summer with his cousins will probably help!
A few days before his birthday, we finally decided to put a party together for him. We invited all of his nursery friends for Chinese dinner and cupcakes. It was a fun night, and we are so grateful for all the people we have met here that we consider our friends now. We wouldn't be able to be here without all of their support!
The night before his birthday, Brock wanted to give him one present. We got out the guitar we bought him and he LOVES it. Unfortunately, most of the strings have already broken off, but I'm going to go get some real strings and see if those work.
The morning of his birthday, I gave him a sprinkle donut for breakfast. He insisted on his bunny sitting on his tray. I kept moving it to the table and he would grab it and put it back. He only at the chocolate and sprinkles of the top....totally my kid.
We had a robot themed party for him. Talia helped me throw it together last minute, but it turned out pretty cute. I think all of the kids had fun playing, and we had fun adult time, too (in between fighting over toys and getting our kids to eat!)
After the party, he played with his toys for a while. At 10:45, he was wiped out and fell asleep on the chair. What a day for our little boy!
