It’s my Little Man’s birthday today and he is turning 2years-old!!!!!!!!!! So exciting to know that i am the mother of an official toddler and i couldn’t be happier.
Motherhood continues to be one of those tasks that is forever changing who i am as an individual and i couldn’t be more proud to be Baby Pancakes’ mother.
He is growing up to be a smart, handsome, thoughtful, independent thinker, social, athletic and all around awesome little man. He likes to explore. He is fearless and adventurous. He is funny and likes to laugh and make others laugh. He is actually a witty toddler at two years-old. He is always smiling and talking. He is opinionated and strong-willed. He is a boy through and through and will tackle you down during a football game.
He is a little genius…he knows all his alphabets and some of them he can say phonetically. He knows how to count from 1-5 by himself and 6-10 with assistance. He knows all his shapes. He can point to California, Alaska, Arizona, New Mexico and knows how to say “Texas”, his favorite state so far. He loves to read and learn.
He loves watching Curious George, Super Why, Daniel Tiger, Sesame Street, anything Elmo related and Barney. He loves to sing and dance and his favorite song is “Happy” by Pharrell and “Itsy Bitsy Spider”, “Elmo’s Song”, “C is for Cookie” and “ABC”. He will get you to sing these songs over and over again. And he can actually hum “twinkle twinkle little star”.
He loves playing sports…baseball (he can strike a ball); he loves football (he tackles me sometimes and i am done after a few times because she is so strong); he likes to play golf and basketball. He is never without a ball. For a two year-old, he is very coordinated, strong and athletic. He copies his daddy when he is working out…cutest thing ever.
Did i mention…i think my son is awesome…all around!!
My husband and i ask ourselves, how we got so lucky to have this little person in our lives because now we couldn’t imagine our lives without him. Our lives are so much enriched because of his presence and being on this Earth.
There will be no big parties this year…but there will be cake and we are returning to Sesame Place again this weekend so that he can enjoy his Elmo themed celebration (he is getting an Elmo cake this weekend). Every day is a party around our parts anyway.
To Baby Pancakes…wishing you a wonderful birthday and enjoy this day and every single day. We love you to the moon and back a million times!!!
