My little boy is two years old. I can hardly believe how quickly time has flown by. It seems like only a few months ago that I was up half the night, praying for more than 45 minutes of sleep in a row and now I find myself up at 6am, praying for an hour more of sleep. I guess some things don't change much!
We had a really nice party. We invited some families from our small group Bible Study and some close friends and had a bbq at the park (okay, I heated hot dogs on the grill and threw bags of chips and watermelon at the kids...but it counts!). It was really nice because the kids could all play on the play equipment in between food, cake and the pinata and it was just really laid back.
Of course, Sam missed it, but one of my friends snapped a bunch of pictures with my camera (thank goodness! I was so busy with everything I just didn't have a free minute to do so!) so he will get to see those memories. Plus, we are going to have our own birthday celebration for Nathaniel when Sam gets back (since we haven't bought his present yet...eep!).
Here is a slide show of the day. I really enjoy some of these photos.
It seems like since turning 2 Nathaniel has blossomed. He is singing constantly and making up stories according to the pictures. He is also starting to really get his sentences down. Things like, "Mommy! I spill milk on chin!" What really cracks me up his how his inner-geek is already starting to show. The other day he woke up from his nap and was asking to watch Jeopardy. Ha!
That's about it here. Haven't talked to Sam since Saturday. But he said he thinks he will be home around the 26th. I hope so...I'm so ready for him to come back!
