Noah turned two last week. And I am currently working on some sort of contraption I can put my kids in so time slows down. I'll let you know how that goes...
We celebrated after dinner with a little party. Just Mommy, Daddy, "B" (Noah's name for Benjamin), "Waliwyn" (Madilyn in 'Noah-speak'), Jacob (the only sibling's name he can pronounce clearly), and, of course, the Birthday Boy.
It was fun to watch the older kids get so excited about Noah getting excited. They just think he is hysterical...and enjoy his two year old antics.
When we go to Lubbock for Christmas, we will have a bigger celebration with grandparents, cousins, and aunts and uncles. But it was so nice to have just a relaxing and fun celebration....just the 6 of us.
After taking Noah to the doctor yesterday for his two year check-up, I have discovered why none of the other boys' hand-me-downs fit Noah as well as they did Benjamin and Jacob when they were two. Noah only weighs a pound less than his 4 1/2 year old brother does. YIKES! You can tell by looking at Noah that he is a big two year old. Jacob was a big two year old. But Noah is in the 80th percentile for his height and his weight. None of our other three have ever been even in the 50th percentile. I think Jacob might have hit right around the 50th percentile for his weight when he was around two, but it was after he turned two that he really started to get taller and slim up a bit. We'll see if Noah does the same.
We are so thankful for our not-so-little two year old. He is such a fun-loving, pretty easy-going (if you can call a two year old easy-going), sibling-admiring, cuddly, always-on-the go kid. I am so blessed to be his mommy.
