You are TWO YEARS OLD!!!!!
We can hardly believe we have a two-year old! You look so big now... look at this big-boy face:
A lot has happened this month... but first, let's look at some stats:
You are 30.6 pounds and 35 inches tall. You are officially in 2T clothing now, and a size 6 diaper. Here's a few things you've been up to lately:
Writing! You can write your name now, as well as most of the letters in the alphabet. This just amazes us... all that you are capable of at such a young age.
You continue to sing. Your favorite song is the Alphabet song, but you also like: Old McDonald, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Days of the Week, and The Farmer in the Dell.
More writing! :)
You went to your first birthday party! Deven, a little girl that lives by my parents, had her 2nd birthday at Kloss Park. You stayed there with Grandpa, and he said you had a good time.
Sportin' some 2T size clothing! These were given to you my Mommy's friend, Lisa. They used to belong to her son, but he's grown out of them (she also gave you a BIG BOY bed! It's in the garage right now, but you'll be ready for it soon!).
You still love your Snuggly. He's either hanging out in your crib or... hanging out of your mouth. :)
Hanging out with your buddy. :)
You and Daddy have been spending a lot of time together this month (more about that later). Here you are with Daddy, making biscuits!
In other news this month... YOU BECAME A BIG BROTHER!!!
Joseph (Joey) Wesley Reyes was born on May 9th at 11:59PM. The next morning, you got to meet him for the first time!
So far, you have been very sweet towards him. At first, I don't think you were quite sure what to make of him. But now you'll say hi to him and kiss him on the head. A few times he's dropped his pacifier, and you picked it up to give it back.
Although right now Joey doesn't do very much, pretty soon he'll be moving around and you'll be able to play with him more. Before we know it, we'll be chasing the two of you around the house! :)
Another big event this month... YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!
Good morning, Birthday boy!!! We woke up and had a pancake breakfast. Then we let you have your first present, a set of kids musical instruments. You seemed to enjoy them, especially the drums.
And of course, Mommy had to do a "2-years Old" Photo Shoot!
Here are a few pictures of cuteness:
After your nap, we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for a little birthday party. Grammy and Papa were there also, which was nice. Grandpa BBQ-ed and we had a very yummy lunch. After that, you opened your presents and we had our "traditional" birthday (cookies and cream) ice cream cake--yum!
Joey slept for about an hour, then he stayed awake until we left! Your little brother is quite a party animal!
You enjoyed your balloons!
The number 2 balloon was taller than you were!!!!!
Grandma and Grandpa gave you a set of toy tools and a tshirt that says: "Mr. Fix-It" :)
Grammy and Papa gave you a truck, markers and little Bert and Ernie figurines!
Mommy and Daddy gave you new bath toys and a little race car toy set.
Another gift from Gma and Gpa: a tricycle!!!
You got a little shy when we sang Happy Birthday to you.
"Yaaay!" You clapped after we sang to you and you blew out the candles.
Going for the cake! :)
Parker, we love you so very much! We love to watch you learn and grow each day. You are so happy and silly! You are a busy boy who is always on the go. God has gifted you in many ways and we look forward to seeing how he continues to grow you! You are such a joy and blessing to us. We love you SO so much!
Happy Birthday, little man!!
Love, Mommy and Daddy
