My "baby" Joshua celebrated his 2nd birthday on February 21st.
Oh how fast they grow!
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)
