As I sit here on the brink of bringing another baby into this world, I am grateful that God has given me this day to remain a family of four. As much as I am over this pregnancy, wishing to get back the ability to breath and have energy to do anything, I was nervous that baby would come and I would spend Doodey's birthday in the hospital loving up someone new, instead of him.

But alas, I'm still here! We checked his party and two year photo shoot off the list this weekend, and are spending this day celebrating him. He is such a stud. I love him so much it hurts. It's wild to think that two years of his precious life have ticked by somehow. I don't know how we got so lucky and got such a cool kid, but I'm sure glad we did. He's a lover and funny and pretty chill, which helps balance out our family pretty nicely.

So, in honor of his second birthday today, I asked him a few questions over breakfast. Although his language is blossoming everyday, I'm adding in my two cents where he gave me blank stares :) My answers are in (parenthesis).

Q: How old are you today?
A: (2)

Q: What do you like to play?
A: Book. (Cars, Little People, Duplos, color, look at books)

Q: What do you like to do with Mommy?
A: Book. (Snuggle, read stories)

Q: What do you like to do with Daddy?
A: Book. (Wrestle, play Hide and Seek, race cars)

Q: What do you like to play with Sissy?
A: My-o (Milo) book. (Little People and Dora house, babies, kitchen, color)

Q: What do you like to eat?
A: Juice. (also yogurt, oatmeal, hummus, any kind of dip, and anything sweet)

Q: What is your favorite color?
A: Purple. (also orange)

Q: What do you like to watch on TV or what is your favorite movie?
A: Doy-ah (Dora), Art-er (Arthur), RuRu Map (Max and Ruby)

Q: What is your favorite store?
A: (Technically it's not a store, but I'd say the library)

Q: What makes you happy?
A: (Blankie and nuk)

Q: What makes you sad?
A: (When Sissy takes my toys away.)

Q: What is your favorite animal?
A: Dog, mew! (Dog, cat)


He makes my heart smile a million times a day, and I can't wait to see how he grows and blossoms even more in the next year.

Happy second birthday,  my sweet little lover man! xoxo
