Our Little Big Guy turned two this week! It hardly seems possible that two years ago we were near the end of the Oscars when we got the phone call that he was ready to pop! And that calls for a party! So we joined with all his grandparents and most of his aunts, uncles and cousins for a celebration!
I'm going to try hard not to overdose you with the "cute" but here were a few of my favorite moments of the day! Here are the grands and the great-grands with the birthday boy -- who would rather have been playing!
The theme of the party was his favorite movie, "Cars." So I painted a birthday card for him!
And he got plenty of cars.
And a big rig, too!
His cousins were on hand, but none of them wanted to pose for a photo!
Tears were shortlived, though -- until we had to pull him away from the big rig to have birthday cake!
Then he was back on it. He enjoyed his cake courtesy of Grandpa!
Of course, he wasn't the only star of the show. Little Little Guy was pretty cute too!
And he delighted us with his crawling. At seven and a half months, he's pretty close to walking, able to push the "lawn mower" and take it step by step with support. We expect him to be running track by April!
Mighty proud of it, too.
And he's a cuddler!
All in all, a lovely day. But boy, does that time fly!
Pretty soon, they'll both have drivers licenses!
I hope we can hand them over a world that isn't too messed up. I'm not terribly optimistic on that front, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
