He is two

Really? He is two already?
It was only the other day, that we were shocked to find out we were going to be a family of five. Anna was only seven months old, I was still nursing and getting used to having two kids. It was a surprise.

I wasn't sure how I was going to do it all, but I did know one thing-
That was a boy growing inside me.
I had the appetite of two teenage boys.
I could drink a tall glass of chocolate milk in two swallows.
If I had been in a belching contest, I would have won.
I think my poor husband was wondering where the woman he married had gone.


He is so delicious and succulent. Laid back, but feisty all at the same time. He likes to be alone. Loves to be held. His personality shines through this busy household.

Happy birthday, my sweet.

I can not wait to see who you turn out to be.

Hi There. Congrats on your big boy. I hope he had a great birthday. It does happen lightning-quick, doesn't it! Also, I tried the peanut butter cups. They will definitely be on my Christmas cookie list as well! Can't wait to see your newest sweater - that might make my knitting list too.
