A day in the life of a TWO year old

Our little guy turned TWO years old today! I'm not even sure how that happened. It's like I blinked my eyes and all of a sudden he's a little man.

Long gone are the days of breastfeeding and burping and sleepless nights...although who am I fooling -- only 9 more weeks of carrying our child-to-be in my belly and I'll be laughing at this post.

Now are the days of trips to the library, swimming lessons, spilt milk and runny noses! I promise to cherish each and every one of these days that I have with just Liam. Because I know that once the baby arrives things are going to change. And I must say, it scares the crap out of me.

Liam is simply THE most amazing thing that has happened in my life, other than meeting & marrying Matt of course :) He amazes me every day with his little quirks, his giggles, his smiles and even his temper tantrums. It's sometimes hard to remember how life was before he came around.

I decided to snap some photos today of our big 'ol two year old, just doing his thing. We had a pretty normal morning & afternoon. Then when Matt finished working we took him to a museum and a family friendly restaurant for dinner. Here's a little bit of our day:

Birthday breakfast. He decided what he wanted. Blueberry waffles, pineapple, raisins and an orange. He's a little fruit addict.

Attempting to help blow up some balloons...

Watching a little Dinosaur Train...

Playing a few games...

Playing, playing, playing...

Practicing sitting on his potty chair.
Notice how Elmo is doing the same thing?

Playing with blocks at our local childrens' museum, Above & Beyond Childrens' Museum.

Steering a ship (at the children's museum).

Checking out a circus exhibit (at the childrens' museum).

Climbing through a suspended tunnel with Matt...

We had dinner at a great local Mexican restaurant, El Camino, and then gave him a scoop of birthday ice cream when we got home. Matt and I practiced our "Happy Birthday" singing skills.

My happy boys.

Flossing before bath time, then bed time.

Happy 2nd Birthday, my little peanut.
I love you!!
