Happy Birthday “Two” You!


Sorry for the play on words, but it was just “two” easy (oh, there it goes again!).

You see, over the weekend, my charming son turned two.  TWO years old!  Really!?!  How did that happen?

While he went to his swimming lessons in the morning with his dad, I was able to finish up the decorations and most of the sandwiches for the buffet under the watchful eye of the littlest one.

Are you sure you're making those sandwiches right, mama?

When little Dude got home and saw the dining room, he got SUPER excited.  He kept repeating “cars” over and over again in the high-pitched voice only a toddler boy can master.

And then, the guests started to pile in.  Besides the fact that his uncle and girlfriend were already at the house, both sets of grandparents, both of his aunts, one set of great-grandparents and two of our friends with their adorable 18 month-old arrived within half an hour.  Between the intriguing wrapped boxes and all the people in the house, the little guy was beyond happy!

Of course, everyone who was there got a hug and kiss from the very happy birthday boy.

It was great fun and Charles had a blast.  It was wonderful to see him enjoy himself and be aware that everything revolved around him that day.
