Graedon turned 2 on Saturday, September 6th, and he had a "Finding Nemo" themed party. We had beautiful weather for a few outside games, including a water balloon figth which the kids LOVED! Too bad we didn't have more balloons filled for them to have played all afternoon. (I am making a mental note to have a huge water balloon fight next year).
Here are some fun pictures from our day, including some of the smiling 2 year old. He loved his Dory and Nemo cake that my mom and I made. I think that is one of my favorite things to do for the kids. I love making their cakes, and I hope I can continue to do so every year.
Fun Graedon Facts:
*He is a morning person. He wakes up and gets up first thing. He immediately wants to go downstairs. "'Mon Mommy," is usually the first thing that I hear. He gives me his blanket to carry and holds my hand as we go downstairs.
*He loves his blanket. He reminds me a Linus from Charlie Brown; the way he drags it everywhere.
*Blocks, Play Doh, and choo choos are some of his favorite toys.
*He loves chapstick, and he would eat the whole stick if I let him.
*He likes to steal Gabe's singing toothbrush. He got one of his own, but he will still take Gabe's.
*He's our cuddler. He loves for us to hold him and sit by him. He even likes it when we lay down with him. Right now, he tends to like daddy to lay down with him because daddy will play instead of just make him lay still and go to sleep.
*He's a singer and a dancer. This little guy loves music.
*He loves to give hugs and kisses, and I love to receive them!
Happy Birthday Graedon!
