a baby no more....


Today, my baby boy turned 2. He is no longer a baby, but a full-fledged toddler. He's mischevious, busy, rambunctious, loving, happy, exuberant...full of joy. He's my boy.

I just can't believe he's a TWO year old now. Seems like he was just a little guy. Now he's talking (although only dad and I can decipher most of the time) and he's running around. He's SO totally a boy, too.

We had a small party for him today. Just our downstairs neighbors Scott, Lisa and Jordyn (who is 3), and my friend Sandra and her girls Ashlyn (Hannah's best buddy who is, luckily, moving to Ft. Riley along with us!), and Alyssa (who just turned 3). It was just the right amount of people. We had pizza (or as Scotty says, "pee pee", LOL!)

Then, we had to have cake right away! Scotty was quite enthralled with the candles on his cake...more so than the character:

He calls the candles "lie lies" (anything that lights up is a lie lie) and as soon as we stopped singing he TRIED to blow out the candles - but needed a bit of help from mommy. Elmo is quite deceiving in the pictures...I didn't realized when I was icing him that the cakeboard had a bend in it (it was on the sealed burners, so the board sagged in the middle...so when I was done, Elmo had a crack in it...I had to put a wedge under him in order to keep his face from cracking in half, lol!

This is the "NO" face!

Then we opened gifts. He was totally enthralled with the gifts from Ashlyn and Alyssa - Wiggles DVDs...he couldn't put them down! We got him to put them down long enough to open other gifts but he would go back to them again and again!

All in all, it was quite a great day. I'll share his birth story later on...just need to rest for awhile, now!

Happy 2nd Birthday (late) Scotty!
I didn't know Sandra found out they were going to Riley too, that's great for you guys, although I'm going to miss you guys so much.
