Today is Joshua's birthday. But because Megan was up for the weekend, we celebrated last night so she could be here. He LOVED blowing out the candles so much we actually lit them and he blew them out a couple of times. And then he'd clap for himself. Yeah, he's humble that way.
He is the light in our world. He is alternately a delight and a terror. He is stubborn and opinionated. He is loving and sweet. And he is all ours.
I was going through some baby pictures of the boys the other day and was again amazed at how much they looked alike as toddlers. All but for the cowlick. Josh has this outrageously cute cowlick on the left side of his forehead. It's hard to miss and the perfect place to kiss.
And so, our sweet Joshua, here are a few of the things that you like to do now as you turn two!!
*You pretty much run the family. Everything we do and don't do revolves around you.
*You take one crazy long nap in the morning and go to bed every night at 6:30. Although you're somewhat flexible, you don't like to vary much from this routine.
*You love your puff blankets and (much to the dismay of your mother), your binky. But only in your bed.
*You jabber in your own language, but know lots of words, animal sounds and noises, and will mimic anything.
*You can spot an airplane from miles away. Trips to base are wrought with excitement for you.
*You have always, and still are very liberal with your sweet baby kisses.
*We're not sure how, but you subsist on Nutra Grain bars, milk, popcorn, strawberries and bananas. With the occasional peanut butter sandwich thrown in for good measure.
*You hate being messy and sticky. You are my only child to care VERY MUCH if your nose is running.
These are just a few. We love you Josh. We're so glad you are part of our family!!
