My baby turned 2! He is getting to be such a big boy. He is talking more and more each day- mostly just mimicking what the other kids say- and is constantly picking up on new words. His favorite thing to eat is pizza. The other morning I went to wal-mart and came home with a flat donut box… as soon as I walked in the door he started yelling “pizza! pizza! pizza!” His disappointment when i told him no pizza was almost comical. Thankfully the box did have donuts in it, and he was soon very happy and covered in chocolate frosting. for the rest of the day he would point to the box on top of the fridge and yell donuts! donuts!
His birthday present was delivered the day before his birthday. The fed-ex guy rang our door bell and ran, leaving the big unwrapped box on our doorstep. Hannah opened the door nice and wide for all the kids to see who was there, and there was no hiding it from Sam to wrap and save for his actual birthday.
He was so excited to get this little car. I hadn’t planned on getting one of these cars for my kids, but I found a super good deal on it ($28 and some change including tax, and the shipped it for free from Wal-Mart.com) and with Sam’s obsession with cars and trucks and anything with wheels I thought he would love it. And I was right. I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted since Chase was still at work, but the whole time I was putting it together he was trying to be in it or helping in some was. he would sit in just the red body with no door, roof or tires and try to scoot it around the room. He got ecstatic when just the rear wheels were put on and tried to run away with it.
Open the door, close the door…open the door again..
Take it for a spin…
And this is why we have seat belts in the real car!
He absolutely loves the thing. It is open on the bottom for him to use his feet to move, but it also came with a removable floor. That is the big kids favorite part- they love to push him all over the house in it as fast as they can, and that floor keeps me from worrying about his little feet getting all mangled.
On his actual birthday we had brownies and ice cream for dinner and let Sam blow out his 2 candles. (which he did awesome on- no coaching needed, and not being a procrastinator he did it before we could finish singing to him). I was going to feed the kids real dinner, and wait for Chase to get home to do brownies… but notice the piece already missing? Chase came home to eat lunch for a change, and before he left decided to help himself to the brownies. So…. since daddy didn’t have the patience to wait for the right time, neither did we. Brownies and ice-cream were over with and kids were ready for bed by the time Chase got home from work.
And just so you know- most days I do try to dress Sam.. he’s just in this phase where he takes off his clothes all the time…
And note the red spots all over him? he had 14 on his face, and a handful over his arms and legs. They all appeared within 12 hours, the nurse I talked to said it was absolutely not chicken pox if it wasn’t on his torso, and he has had 1 out of 2 chicken pox vaccines… but it’s been a whole week and they aren’t gone yet! So we kept him home from church today… just in case.
