today is the baby's 2nd birthday. if you've read this blog for any amount of time you probably know that while i love him more than words can say, he has been quite the handful. in some ways i can't believe it's already been 2 years and in others it seems like much, much longer! we often joke around here that god made him extra cute and adorable so that it is impossible to stay mad at him for long.
we had a really great birthday party yesterday for him. he was a super good birthday boy and had a fantastic time. he's been obsessed with m&m's for quite some time now, so it was an easy theme to choose for the party. let's just say we have enough m&m's around here to last until he turns 3! here are some highlights from the day:
the first three photos are of the night before when we made the cake for the party. both boys wanted to help and, while they made a mess, they did a super good job. they were so cute working together.
the next two are opening presents. he got a remote controlled tractor from my brother's family that has been the source of many screaming matches between the boys. (it sure is hard sharing new toys!)
then we have two photos of the m&m cake. simple, easy, and very tasty! big brother also made some great garland out of m&m printouts that i made. he cut out 16 circle m&m's all by himself in one sitting! unfortunately i don't have any photos to share. i also forgot to take pictures of the favors i made. nothing crazy, just m&m magnets and single serving sized bags of m&m's.
the final photo is of the baby eating his cake. by the time we made it that far he could hardly hold his eyes open. (as you can see) i think he was in a sugar coma! he also kept saying "belly hurt, belly hurt", but wouldn't let me take his cake away. it was so sad. he wanted to eat his cake so bad but he had eaten so much that he was starting to feel sick.
all in all, it was a super great day. i have high hopes that 2 will be the magic number where things start flowing a little more smoothly. even if it doesn't, his sweet smile, cute giggles, and adorable dimples will win me over every time.
daddy and i love you so much little guy. we wouldn't trade you for the world!
