Baby’s 2 year birthday!

My baby turned 2 on Sunday. It’s hard to believe. Doesn’t it always seem like it was just yesterday that they were born? Why do we always remember things as if they had just happened? “It seems like just yesterday……”

We didn’t have a birthday party for him today, but I am up half the night tonight trying to get my house in shape, so we can have a few family members over tomorrow night for cake and icecream. Tomorrow I will be making his Thomas the Tank Engine cake from scratch. I always love making the boys their cakes for their birthdays. I always ask them what kind of cake they want and this year both Nboy and Ekid want Sonic the Hedgehog cakes, so that will be interesting!

But, last night Baby’s grandma and great grandma on my husbands side, stopped by and brought him a present. A little washable marker set with lots of little coloring pictures! Now that was the perfect gift for Baby because he LOVES markers and pens! He will not color with crayons. I don’t know what is wrong with crayons or why kids tend to think that markers are more sophisticated, but they all do at some point in their little lives…..Baby just started early. Problem is, he likes to draw on EVERYTHING. Himself, mostly, but other things will do too, like the wall occasionally, or his clothes, toys, floor, brothers….you name it lol.

So anyway, my littlest guy is growing up, just like the others! I just hope he never grows out of his willingness to give tons of kisses and hugs. He is such a little cuddle bug, and just so stinkin’ cute!

First Baby Teeth!

Well, our little guy finally had a tooth pop through last Saturday. Boy does time fly. He’s been teething hard for a couple months now, and drooling so much you’d think he could cause a flood! The great thing is that I felt in there Wednsday night and found that the other bottom tooth is poking through now too. No wonder he’s been so cranky! Two teeth at once,, poor guy.

It’s exciting, but at the same time, I know it won’t be long before he’s walking around and then not long after that he’ll be too big to hold. I look at my other two boys and it’s neat to see them grow, but then again I’d love to hold them as little babies again,, smiling at me with that little gummy smile,, thier little face lighting up when I walk in the room,, Ahhh babies,, God sure knew what he was doing and how to get us to reproduce more!LOL Even though they can make you insane with thier crying and keeping you up all night pacing the floor,, they make up for it with thier little baby cuteness and charm and make you almost forget the pain of child birth and the sleepless nights!

Enjoy your babies while you can, because they grow up so fast! Good night everyone….
