Today started like any other . . . half dressed child, begging for bananas.
So after breakfast we got (fully) dressed and headed out the door.
First stop: giant playground.
*insert wardrobe change due to wet slides*
He is dangling by his fingertips and using his brute strength to pull himself up.
They gasped and asked, "How old is he????"
One mom said, "Oh my! He is totally rocking that climbing wall!"
He was, too. Totally rocking it!
We were the cool kids on the playground today.
I decided to break the rules of healthy eating we (sometimes) follow and treat my little man to his favorite cuisine - McDonalds nuggets and fries. Gross to me, complete delicacy to him.
Then it was home to nap and play until . . .
daddy came home and we all gathered around for our evening tackle/hug.
And a few more of Brendan's favorites for dinner - pizza and red Kool-Aid, in a real glass with ice (just like the one he is always trying to steal from mommy.) Call me crazy.
No birthday is complete without a birthday cupcake decorated by Megan
and a good coating of saliva spray for good measure.
Then it was on to some presents sent by a very thoughtful Godmother Sara
So, like I said before, we really know how to rock a birthday around here.
We're not even done! On Sunday, we'll celebrate with a Bubble Guppies cake and a birthday party.
And now, I'll close this blog post with a list of Brendan's many talents at age 2:
Did you know he can sing his ABCs, You are My Sunshine, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star?
One of his favorite games is climbing up to the top of the stairs/couch/table/etc. Once he's reached the top he yells, "Momma, CATCH!" at which point I have exactly 3 nanoseconds to determine where the sound is coming from, dash to his location, and catch him just before he crashes to the ground. It is so much fun!
Now, didn't I tell you we know how to rock a birthday?
