Rowan turns 2!




Tomorrow is the anniversary of Rowan's birth. I can't believe it has been 2 years already, although I can hardly imagine my life without him. He is definitely not a baby anymore:( He is talking a lot, telling stories, playing a lot, he even started to ask "why?" about everything. "Why dirt?" (as in why is there dirt on the tire) "Why these?" pointing to the shorts I picked out for him. It is cracking me up. He is also beginning to pronounce some words that he used to have difficulty with. I don't want to forget some of these because I loved his baby way of saying them.

"con cete muh muh" - concrete mixer - he now says "con cete micker" That was one of my all time favorites.

So what else is new with the soon to be 2 year old. He continues to love his sister and show his love throughout the day. He loves to give her big snuggly hugs. Athena and Rowan play together a lot throughout the day, although they have their moments. He still loves anything trucks, trains, and sports related. He has been wearing a Superman costume for 5 straight days (I've gotten him to take it off most nights so I've washed it a couple times in between). He loves to say he is "Toop Man!" I'm not sure why he loves the costume so much, but I think it is because of the reaction he gets from everyone while we are out. He smiles big whenever anyone says "Look, it's Superman!"

Well, if you want to be reminded of Rowan's actual "birth" day, I posted a birth story last year here. And here is a post about his cupcake party. I just read that we ate 50 cupcakes. I guess our group has grown as I just made 6 dozen cupcakes for his party on Saturday. I don't think 50 would have been enough, but maybe it would. We shall see. Well, I'm super excited to celebrate with my family and friends over the next couple days. I love thinking back to all of the special things we've done since Ro has joined our family.

Finally someone said German chocolate! That's not it, but I was sooooo close to making that one because I love Geran chocolate cake!

P.S. Your boy is seriously adorable!

Happy birthday, ro-ro!
Isn't it crazy all the new things they are saying? Elise says all kinds of new phrases now and it's quite trippy!
