As promised, here is a run-down of Sunday's birthday activities:
James started out the morning glued to his new Thomas Trackmaster playset. As you can tell, he loves to sit and watch it go 'round and 'round!
All day he asked if we were going swimming. Here he is in the pool. LOOK AT MY LITTLE MAN!!!
Here he is all by himself with the little swimmy wings that Gini got him. He's doing great!
Hannah and Chris enjoyed playing a few rounds of chicken on the inflatable animals.
Nice lobstah, babe!
OK, so we headed inside for cake, and wouldn't you know the best and only pic of James really smiling has a huge water spot on it. DANG!!! Wish I knew a good Photoshopper . . .
I was so bummed that my friend Katie couldn't make James' cake--her cakes are SPECTACULAR, but oh yeah, she's in Atlanta about to have a baby. Anyhow, James loves the Cars movie and I found out that Baskin Robbins makes a Cars ice cream cake. Not too shabby!
Why am I wearing the hat? Shouldn't James be? Oh, yes--he had a meltdown when we all started to sing "Happy Birthday" and ripped his off and started screaming. R-I-G-H-T.
Our birthday boy and his cake. He LOVED it!
Well James, I can't believe that we just celebrated your turning two. You are the love of our lives. You are sweet and funny and sensitive and loving. I could have never known how amazing the opportunity to be a Mother has been--you are a gift and I treasure you every day.
