cayden turns two

dearest cayden:

on friday, you turned two years old. and every time that daddy or i told you about it, you would shake your head and say, "no." we thought it was quite humorous. only two and you were already denying your birthday. but you caught on very quickly that having a birthday only means good things.


surprisingly enough, we had to wake you up that morning so that we could be the first people to sing you happy birthday. you were in such a deep sleep that it took us a few minutes to stir you, but once we started singing, your face broke into the biggest grin. and you just KNEW it was going to be a good day.


we treated you to a breakfast cupcake. which was really just a banana muffin, but you insisted on calling it a cupcake. and you know, it was your day, so why not? plus, calling it a cupcake seems so much more festive than calling it a muffin.


while me and daddy got ready for work, you ripped into a couple of cards that some great-grandmothers had sent your way and showed off your loot to the camera. since we had to work that day, you went to school like any other day and shared some white chocolate suckers with your classmates.

daddy took you on a little trip across the street when you got home to see the bulldozer that's been living over there for a couple of weeks (our neighborhood is a new one so there's always some sort of construction going on). i definitely have a favorite photo from your little adventure, but i'm saving it to post tomorrow.


once i finally got home from work, we took you to dinner at buffalo wild wings where you inhaled your mini corn dogs and yelled at all the tvs in there. you really liked watching the race cars and hopkey (hockey). we kept you up well past your bedtime and treated you to a real cupcake – a strawberry one with pink icing. and then we even let you stay up to watch aminals (that's madagascar for all of you).

all in all, i'd say you had a pretty fabulous second birthday. your party though? you rocked your party. but that's a whole 'nother post my sweet heart. you're a fabulous toddler that me and daddy are thrilled to know. you continually surprise us with all you can say and do. and we can't really imagine our life before you came to us anymore. it's just that awesome. so continue to grow and shine and make us smile. we love it all.

oh, and we had your two year check-up this morning!
height: 34.5" (50th percentile)
weight: 26 lbs. (25th percentile)
head: 20" (i think you finally grew into it!)

could eat you to pieces, we love you so,
mama & daddy
