I'm 2, I'm 2!

It's hard to believe its been two years already since we sat in that hospital room and watched the biggest little life changer come into this world. Wow. People always tell me 'they grow up quick' and man do they. Looking back I can't believe it's been two years. But I can honestly say, it's been the greatest, most gratifying, sometimes trying, but always worth it two years of our lives. Happy Birthday Squirt. We love ya!

Birthday Bash!

This last weekend we celebrated Madisyn's 2nd birthday a little bit early. Simon (and family) and Lola (and family) and Aunt Courtney came over and had a great little time. Madisyn got great gifts from her buds, and they had a blast playing with all the toys and balloons.

The kids all helped Madisyn open her gifts!

She got a cute new outfit from Lola (and fam.)

...a shiny new cash register from Simon (and fam.)

...and a fruit basket to run thru the checkout line.

Then it was time to sit down at the kiddie table for a little din din.

It obviously wasn't enough food for Lola, who wanted to snack on some fries.

Then it was time for cake. Dad made, or attempted to make, a Mickey cake. Not really sure how to make black frosting we substituted brown. Its a bit more of a 'retro' Mickey than you may be used to seeing. Nothing a little sideburn trim wouldn't fix. When I asked Madisyn who it was, she said Mickey....which totally made me feel better. Ace of Cakes I'm not. They make it look a lot easier on TV. It was kind of funny and sad at the same time, we were passing out cake, and Madisyn kept asking...."Where'd Mickey's ear go." Not the easiest question to answer.

Mommy and the birthday girl.

Aunt Courtney helped Madisyn blow out her 2 candles.

The cake eating started off dainty and clean...

But quickly led to what kids do. It was a great day and thanks to our friends for coming over to celebrate with us.

Nothing like a little Handy Manny to bring friends together! Simon (and Adolfo) came over the other night for pizza and bananas. The kids had a great time running around, doing some shoveling, and just being kids. Its so crazy how far these kids have come in such a short time. Only another week or so until the big numero 2. Crazy.
