My baby is TWO!!!

August 21st, is the most special day of all!
 Our favorite little human is TWO!

Even though his real birthday is today we are celebrating his birthday THIS Saturday just so my husband can be in on all the fun... all day long.

Poor child, thinks his birthday is in 2 days.
He has no idea he is already 2.
HA this is the last year we can switch dates on him before he knows the difference right?

My little TWO year old is quite the jib jabber!
He's getting so good at putting 3 and 4 words together to ask me things!

He's also at the "frustrated" stage.
Poor baby tries so hard to pronounce things to tell me what he wants but sometimes I have no idea what the heck he is saying!
He get a little frustrated when we don't understand him ha.

The 'frustrated' part is where the terrible twos make their grand entrance!
Our child is slowly learning that "fits" don't fly in our house!

Quite the learning process.

Half the time Aaron and I are trying to hold back laughter when he starts "fake crying"
Nice try babe.

He's beyond obsessed with planes, cars, trucks, anything motorized and BALLS.
Give him one of those and he will love you for life!

Favorite song is Wheels on the Bus, We sing it about 50 times a day.
He asks me every hour, "Mamma, Bus Pleeeese"

Ice cream obsessor.
Every night he asks me for Ice Cream after we eat dinner.
HA we limit our ice cream to once or twice a week so it doesn't get too out of control with him.:)

100% boy and the sweetest little love bug.
We are so obsessed with you little boy!

Cannot wait to celebrate your day of birth!

  1. Happy Bday!!!! Good luck with the potty and i can't wait to see pics from his party!

  2. When our little boy was at "the frustated two's" we began teaching him sign language. There was a series out there called "Signing Time". It is very basic, but our little boy watched them over and over again. I think it helped him in more ways than one. He was reading before kindergarten. A bit unexpected, but we took it!

  3. Oh my gosh, y'all made the most perfectest child everrrrrrr. He is such a little cutie. Oh, wow. I don't have a partner and I get the 'baby hungry' feeling whenever I see photos of Ryan on your, all the time ;) hahaha happy birthday to the little cutie!

  4. Happy birthday little man! Our little dude just turned 2 about three weeks ago and I can totally relate on so many aspects of this age. They really know how to work the cute, don't they? Haha. And we will be trying potty training again as soon as big brother starts preschool next month. Seriously the most exhausting thing I have ever done, but very worth it! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend celebrating together.

  5. Happy 2nd Birthday, sweet boy!!!! :)

  6. Can't wait to see what surprises you have for him on Saturday! You are such a cute mama!

  7. Happy birthday cute little dude! And Karina, you are such a good mama. I love that you have guidelines and boundaries from the beginning! I'm going to take a leaf from your parenting book when my baby gets older!

  8. yay me and your babe have the same birthday!!!


  9. Happy birthday sweet boy!!! He is just the best.

  10. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RYAN!! You are such a precious little man and we hope you had the best celebration!!!!

  11. I still can't believe he's two!! Can't wait for your recap on his celebration! I bet it was the BEST! Also, I'm dying to know how potty training goes! We were in Target yesterday and Eric asked if I wanted to buy a little potty for Mia... um, NO! I am terrified! I don't even know where to begin. Yikes!!
