Two



The Nugget celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday.  We started with a casual backyard party for his local buddies - cupcakes and a potluck lunch.  When Daddy came home, he opened his gifts, then we went to Red Robin (the Nugget's favorite restaurant) for his birthday dinner.  He had fun all day long, which stands in contrast to his 3 parties last year, in which he decided, "It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to".  Of course, 1 year old parties are mainly for the adults - this year, it was all about him.  

I look forward to the year ahead.  I'm sure it will have its "terrible" moments, but I also hope that it will hold a lot of adventure, growth, new skills, and new interests.  The Nugget is growing into himself, his body is becoming more capable, we can see the ideas practically milling above his head in a thought bubble.  Each new word he learns is giving us insight into his mind, hopes, and desires.

Here's to you, Nugget!  May your 3rd year on earth bring you as much joy as you bring us.

If you like his awesome shirt, you can find it at happyfamily on Etsy.  (They have different fonts, and can make any number on any size shirt, ideal for us, because the Nugget's 2nd birthday shirt had to be a 4T.)  I loved that the number came out clearly in photos and that it doesn't say "birthday" so he can easily wear this shirt all year.

  1. I've always thought the first bday was for the adults, but all the rest are more fun because the little ones get more 'into it' each year.

    Can't wait to see you guys!!
