Choo Choo...Fisher is 2! (continued)

 The grand finale to a week-long celebration of Fisher's birth was his birthday party.  It was a no brainer to go with a train theme with the way this kid loves trains.  While he is starting to show interest in other things, for awhile trains were his ONLY interest.  Here are some highlights from his big day:
 ...and more cupcakes!
 We're ready for a party!
 What's a train party without a train?! 
It's my party!

"Yummy, Tummy"
 Ready for cake! 
 I'm gonna stick my finger in it just for fun.
 Surrounded by our family and friends.
Time for presents! 
 If you've seen Fisher lately, you've probably seen him in this hat.  
He won't leave home without it.  
 Bouncy fun with my best bud, Brody, and 2 suckers in hand!
 Can you tell this kid had fun today?
Fisher, you have brought so much joy into our family and I've enjoyed spending every minute of the last two years with you.  You are the most easy-going, laid-back kid and you just follow happily along with everything we do.  Whether its going to school/sports activities with Trace or running errands with Mommy, you never complain...unless maybe it's too close to nap time. You're also one of the smiley-est kids I've ever seen.  We like to call you "our little parrot" because you repeat everything we say or anything that you hear.  You're very well mannered, which seems odd for a kid your age to always remember to say "please" and "thank you".  You are super intelligent!  You have picked up so much from Trace and quite honestly, LPB & Nick Jr.  You can identify all of your ABC's, numbers, shapes and colors.  I often wonder what's left for you to learn before you start preschool in the fall? You love animals of all kinds, blowing bubbles, swinging, building tall towers, talking to "Konka" (Monica) on the phone, playing trains and legos, playing Play Dough, putting stickers all over the house, and of course your favorite show of all-time, Blue's Clues!  You're very curious and love to explore everything...even what's not meant for you to explore.  We can't keep you out of the trash can, away from the permanent markers and paint, or out of the DVD cases...which drives Daddy crazy!  Some of our favorite words of yours are "check up" = "ketchup", "fiskin it" = "fixing it", and "ajaberry" = "strawberry".  You're a silly little ham and we love you to pieces.  
Happy Belated 2nd Birthday, Baby Boy.  Yes, you're still my baby boy and you always will be.  
I love you so much.  -Mommy

Fisher turns 2! (Part 1 of 2)

I know, I know, I'm behind on blogging.  But I promised myself I would not neglect to blog about my baby's birthday.  So here goes...back in March, Fisher had a birthday!  His birthday was on Monday the 12th and we had his party the following weekend on St. Patty's Day, so we took the opportunity to celebrate all week long! It all began with a family trip to the Aquarium of the America's in NOLA.  We'd taken Trace once before, when he was about Fisher's age, but this was Fisher's first trip!    

Here's one with Fisher & Daddy!
And now the whole fam.  Fisher was none too happy about getting inside the shark's mouth. 
My two silly boys!
And my 3rd silly boy!
We had a great family day in NOLA which ended with Frosties and naps on the way home!
Then came Fisher's actual birthday on Monday.  
We spent the morning at the Mall of LA and Daddy met us for lunch.  
Here's my little cheeseball taking pictures of himself! 
 Sitting on the gator. 
 Sliding face first, of course.
 What's a birthday without ice cream? 
 Carousel with Mommy!
 Round 2 with Daddy! 
Once Trace came home from school, we celebrated with cupcakes! 
Fisher LOVED singing and blowing out candles!
"Again, Again!"
 "Yummy, Tummy"
 We did cupcakes again with our community group.  
 Here's all of our kiddos, plus Kyle's legs. :)
It was a fun-filled birthday!  I still can't believe my baby boy is 2.  
Stay tuned for our next post..."The Birthday Party"!
