Birthday Boy

My "baby" Joshua celebrated his 2nd birthday on February 21st.

Oh how fast they grow!

2 days old

2 years old

Indeed, how fast they grow! What an eventful 2 years its been! It's hard to believe that the sweet round cherub that came into the world 2 years ago, is now running and talking. It's amazing to see the changes in the course of a few years. His language and vocabulary are probably the most amazing of all. For being a quieter younger brother most of his life, in the last 3 months his vocabulary has multiplied by the hundreds. And all those words we knew he had in him, started coming out in sentences. Wow!!

A few other unique skills before he turned 2:

  • he learned how to count to 12 (without my (intentional) assistance!!)

  • he learned to pray (usually something like this, "Dear God, Thank-you food. Jesus. Daddy. Mommy. Isaiah. Joshua. Baby. In Jesus name, Amen")

  • he shredded apart his beloved yellow blanket and carries shards around the house

  • he discovered his pockets (and so far as not put anything ALIVE in them, but likes to hide favorite toys

  • he learned all his colors

  • he sleeps in a bunk bed

  • he can identify most of the letters of the Alphabet, with "W" being his personal favorite.

  • he can do his chores (clearing his plate from the table, cleaning up his toys, and throwing away dirty diapers)

He's adorable. And smart! Only a smart little 2 year old would know that "W" is the letter to love! Happy Birthday sweet little Joshua!
