Look who’s TWO!

Little man –

We celebrated your second birthday this past weekend. (Just a small get-together with family, but you had a blast!) Oh, how are lives have changed of the past couple of years…

I just can’t believe how much you have grown up since your first birthday! You are a SUPER active kid, and you talk ALL. THE. TIME. (I have NO idea where you get that from! lol) You are definitely more social than I imagine your father and I were at this age. It’s really fun to see you interacting with other kids. A few days ago, when I dropped you off at daycare, you went right up to another boy in your class and said “HI!” and waved! It was so cute!

You love being outside, playing with trucks or a ball, and playing “fetch” with the dogs. You are quite artistic, too! Your finger paints of choice are applesauce or yogurt…all over the table…and any other furniture you manage to touch on the way to the sink to get cleaned up.

I’m so excited to see what adventures the next year has in store!

I love you SO much!

~ Mommy

    Oh my gosh what a cutie! They change so quickly in those first years.

  3. It is amazing how fast they grow. Just this morning I was remembering worrying about whether or not he knew all his letters for kindergarten registration, and today he is a freshman in high school. Enjoy this age, it goes soooooo fast.

    What a precious document of his birthday! Love all the little facts and details about his likes and stats. 🙂

    • practicalgrnmom says:

      Thank you! I did it every month from birth to age 2. 🙂 I’m not sure what I’ll do from here on out. Maybe every 6 months or so?

  6. southernmessmom says:

    Awe how precious! I just love that face lol

  7. I love the two pics in the push toy. I take a pic every year at Christmas in a baby chair Brady has and they are so fun to put together now that he’s 7! What a cutie!

    • practicalgrnmom says:

      Thanks! It was not planned at all. I honestly forgot I had the picture from his first birthday until someone mentioned it to me! lol

      • You should totally take one every year on his bday. I have stitched 8 of my son’s together, same chair, every year at Christmas and seeing him change in relation to something that doesn’t is amazing! This year (he was 7) he held it up over his head 🙂 Just like a boy, eh!

  8. very cute love the little round up 😀 my kids never liked meat much either at that age 😀
