He's 2!

We all say it: time flies, they grow so fast, where does the time go? And now I say it all that again because today we celebrate Kaylum's 2nd Birthday! WOW!

He told me today he was a "big boy" when I asked if he was my baby. "No baby, Big Boy!" *sigh* and that he is. He's is such a little man who is just so awesome. He's busy as any little boy is. He gets into things his sisters never did and keep us on out toes at all times. He loves his naps and often asks to go for one, which I am always happy to oblige him on. He speaks so well and can string about 4 words together. His vocabulary is amazing and he says the best things. He can say both the girl's names but not his own. He knows the way to Papa and Marmie's house and loves spending time there building trains with them. Trains are his favorite, along with airplanes and big trucks. Machinery fascinates him but he will still play Barbies, Polly Pockets and dress up with his sisters. The best thing about Kaylum is when he throws his arms around my neck and gives me the biggest, hardest hug ever. And it lasts for a long time. What a precious little guy.

Kaylum was very excited about his birthday, even though I know he didn't understand what it meant. He said this morning, MY BIRTHDAY! And when you ask how many, he holds 2 fingers up and says TWO. I put some balloons up and he loved that. The girls have been talking about it with him for so long, he can even sing the Birthday song! Tonight we had Meet the Teacher night at school, so we popped over to do that. I picked up some cupcakes today to have after dinner as the real party is on Sunday. So we did that when we got back and had a small gift opening as well. As you can see the cupcakes, well the icing, was a big hit. Most of the cake part was left after he was done.
