So Grown Up...

When does age 2 suddenly seem like age 6? We got Julian all ready to go this morning for his first day of Mother's Day Out (pre-pre-school) and as I packed his lunch I felt like I was sending him off to Kindergarten! He had a bit of a rough day. Apparently it started out great, but when he realized I wasn't coming back for a while and that he had to nap there he got kind of upset. I think it was on and off tears all day.

I picked him up to find a very tired, but still pretty happy guy withn a big smile on his face. 2 is tough, they don't quite understand everything yet and in their eyes 7 hours way from mom is a long time! I missed him like crazy, but I got a MILLION things done. I am hoping it just gets easier from week to week.

On a lighter note, we did celebrate his 2nd birthday (early) because my parents decided to visit for the long weekend. We had an impromptu, very casual, but very fun celebration. It was so gorgeous this weekend, we spent a lot of time outside.

it's always hard to get a toddler to smile...

how sweet is this pic? His twin cousins are the best!

a new car to add to the collection with some help from his Pappy

slightly overwhelmed by all the excitement

Our very "tidy" son didn't want to get his hands dirty in the cake. So mom and dad showed him how it was done...

yep, that's how you get your toddler to eat his cake!

We had an amazing weekend, and I hope you all did too!


  1. So funny! Looks like a great time was had by all (sooo cute with twin cousins). The pic of you two and the cake? Priceless!

  2. Julian is a doll! He is so darn cute! Love the picrure of him with his backpack! Looks like a great party.
