Happy Birthday Blake!

I cannot believe my baby boy is 2 years old! I look at him and see a little boy now and not a baby. These past two years have flown by and I have mixed emotions about what is to come. Tee Ball, school, sleepovers, girlfriends....oh my! I cannot wait for him to play sports (like his daddy and mommy did growing up) like tee ball, basketball, and soccer. I think he will be athletic....or at least I hope.

Here is a picture of Blake at about a week old.

Here is a picture of Blake at his first birthday party.

Here is a recent picture of Blake. Look how much he has changed!

Here are a few updates for Blake:
-You LOVE being outside. Even if it's raining, you want to go out and play.
-You love your little sister. You call her Tai-la right now and you love to give her kisses and talk to her.
-You love to eat and will just about eat anything. You would eat all day if we let you.
-The only movie you really like right now is Shrek (1, 2, & 3). You will sit through the entire movie! I can't wait to take you to the theater to see Shrek 4, which is coming out in a couple of week.
-You love to run everywhere. There is no walking with you....and you are very fast!
-You love music....whenever you hear it on TV or the radio, you will start smiling and dancing!
-You know how to throw a fit! One way to stop you is to just cry with you :)
-You adore your cousins Austin and Katie. You follow Austin around like a big brother and you and Katie fight like cats and dogs (or brother and sister!)

Toy: Legos, anything Shrek
Food: Anything! You love nutri-grain bars and fruit
Drink: You can't like without your milk! And apple juice
Movie: Shrek (of course!)

This past weekend we had Blake's birthday party. His birthday is actually May 8th, but Uncle Brad is graduating form college that day so we needed to move it. I am sure you can guess what the theme of his party was....SHREK! I'm not sure if Blake was excited about the humongous Shrek balloon and cake or it is scared him. The plan was to have it at our house and get a bouncy house and have the playset up for the kids to play on, but of course, it rained...big time 6 inches. Oh well, we moved it to my parent's house and had it inside and had a great time. Blake got so many cool things! He actually got 3 lawnmowers!! He also got a Tee ball set, a couple of dump trucks, a basketball goal, a couple of Shrek toys, a few puzzles, and of course his playset! Grammy and Grandpa went in with us and got him his playset that I cannot wait for him to play on. He has gotten to swing on it for 20 minutes or so, but then we had to go in to go to bed and he was not happy...the terrible two's kicked in! Like I said before, he loves playing outside, so he was not happy when he had to come in. I am sure it will be like this the entire summer. It has rained since the playset was completed so he hasn't been able to get back out there and play on it.

I will post again after he has his 2 year appointment at the doctor. He will also be going to the dentist for the first time that day too! Mommy has taken off work so it will just be us that day. I can't wait!

Happy Birthday baby boy! Mommy and Daddy love you!

    Hope to see you soon. I have a bag with that cute boy's name on it!!

  2. aww...those pictures from the party are awesome...Lauren did a great job. I guess everybody had the same idea with the lawnmower...sigh! I remembered you saying he liked being outside and I thought...what I great idea! I remember having one when I was little. Oh well! Thank goodness for gift receipts!
