Brother's Second Birthday

Posted by Heather , 9.01.2008 10:16 PM

So, it's official. We have two two-year-olds. Brother celebrated his birthday last Thursday 8/28. The day started early when he woke up at 5 am and came in to bed with us. At first I was annoyed, but he is just so dang cute. I woke to have him curled around my arm asleep. How sweet. I didn't want to move, but I had lots to do to get ready for his birthday party.

We had a great little party with his closest cousins and neighbors. It was complete with a little painting craft, water balloons, pizza, and ice-cream cone cupcakes. Of course, his favorite thing was the mylar Elmo balloon. Elmo is big at our house right now.

One of my favorite little quirks about Brother is the way he "saves" special things. For example, I will give he and Sis the same little treat. She immediately devours hers. He holds his, looks at it, walks around with it, looks at it some more, then maybe takes a bite. The most common occurrence is that he will carry something around half the day, then he sets it down for a minute and Sis. swoops in and eats it in 2 seconds. He carried around his cupcake until after nearly everyone had left.

His party was a lot of fun. The kids played while the moms chatted. After it was all over, I gave Brothy and Sis a bath and they took a nearly 4 hour nap--the little party animals.

We also had a family party on Sunday. It was fun. I made Brothy gourmet chicken nuggets and a "dirt cake." Of course he wouldn't eat any dinner and was scared to death of the candles, but it was still a good time. He loves his new Elmo and Froggy videos, and especially loves the little Elmo iPod toy Grandma & Grandpa gave him. I hit a Saver's Labor Day sale today and bought them both Elmo shirts. Now I've got to wash them so they can wear them. Life is good. We are ready for the fall. My thoughts always turn to my grandmas this time of year.
