He is just TWO cute

Last week we celebrated our Little Man's 2nd Birthday.
It is amazing how fast they go from this:

to this:
It is so fun to watch him grow and learn, but there is still a part of me that wishes I could stop time and keep him little forever. 

Daddy was gone on Will's real birthday so Liz, Will and I celebrated with cupcakes and ice cream and then had our family party on Sunday night. Right now Will is all about cars and bikes... Loves them! So, our little party was car themed. I foresee many car themed parties in our future!

He was soooo excited when we got the cake and presents out. 

He thought it was pure torture when we made him wait for cake and presents and take pictures with all of us!

It took a few tries to blow out the candle. There was bunny sniffing and attempted lickings. In the end he figured it out and then we had to light the candle several more times to blow out just for fun!

He really got in to the presents this year. It is so fun when they figure that out. He was asking for more before he even finished unwrapping the one he had. Every time he got a peek of a present he would do this face and say "ohhh" so excitedly. It was the funniest thing!

He got a baseball glove and games and sweet presents from Liz.

His Hotwheels track was definitely the highlight of the night. I think everyone is enjoying that present!

After presents, it was cake and ice cream time! He didn't really dig the chocolate cupcakes we got earlier in the week, so we went for plain old white cake this time and he loved it! 

We are so thankful for this little boy.
After 7.5 years, he was definitely a surprise, and now we just can't imagine our lives without him.

He is wild and crazy and can't sit still for 2 seconds. He is constantly exploring and on the move looking for his next big adventure...which usually entails jumping off of something.

He can also be so sweet.
He is generous with his hugs and kisses...especially after he has pulled your hair and whacked you on the back of the head with a toy {poor Liz!}.

He has his daddy's killer smile, which I love!

And the hair.
Oh that gorgeous bright red hair! I always have to allow myself an extra 5-10 minutes in the store to talk to people. Everyone wants to stop and meet this little guy.

And his little laugh is so contagious...
He will always be Number 1 in our hearts

I just love this little man and am so happy he is a part of our family!

I can't believe he's 2! I haven't seen pictures of him for a long time. He's sure grown up and so adorable. Yes boys at that age are soooo busy!! Good thing they know how to melt their momma's hearts.
