Two years old!!

Our little Davis is not so little any more; he is two years old! Just in the last few months, he is getting to be so much fun!
For his birthday, we had about 4 different present unwrappings, and lots of fun!  We went to story time on Thursday, then went to Grandma and Grandpa's house to play with them.  On Friday, we met friends at Chick-Fil-A and played in the play area and had lunch and opened presents again!  Birthday dinner was homemade Macaroni and Cheese with homemade Pumpkin Bread.
 When it is your birthday and you ask for a cookie for breakfast, Dad will give you an Oreo cookie!

 First day of present unwrapping

And he got a great book.  That ended the first session and kept him busy for a long time!

The second present unwrapping.  He got snow pants, a coat, and boots.  He practiced walking in his new outfit for a while and loved it!

At Chick-Fil-A with Mommy and Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa, Great Grandma and Grandpa, Chase, Joni, Alvin and Clark, and Marcela and Damian.  This place was chosen because of the play area, which is a lot of fun!  We also had the third present unwrapping here, but then had to play in the play area!

We then went home and opened the gift from Grandma and Grandpa and loved it!  It was a little Fisher Price farm, which is his favorite!
Things I want to remember about Davis at two years old:
  • He is so sweet and so excited to have a baby girl join our family!  He will be a "bee ba," or a big brother.
  • He is getting so good at talking, toddler style.  Like my parents say, he talks in complete sentences.  The trick is getting to the point where we understand the whole sentence, but it is getting easier:
    •   "Mi Mi" means "Excuse me." It is used any time he needs to get by or if he "tooted," which means toots or burps.
    • "Wa Wees" means "water." 
    • "Ba na," means "Banana."(Because, really, there are way too many letters in that word)
  • He loves to go "bye bye."
  • He loves to read books and gets to have "two books" to go to bed with every night.
  • He thinks it is pretty cool to have a big boy bed, and especially loves to be able to come into our room in the morning and ask to get "up, please" in our bed.
  • Pretty much every day, we have a conversation where he tells me that he is happy. 
  • He LOVES my iPad.  The iPad's name is "Animals," and he loves to play the animals game or the drawing game, which he calls, "Color."
  • He loves anything having to do with any kind of animals.  He knows pretty much what all animals say.
  • He can run really fast, and is the best jumper ever.  We have heard that he gets the best vertical of anyone in nursery!
  • All big trucks, buses, or bulldozers are trains, and make the sound, "Choo choo."
  • He gives the best kisses, which means that he puts his mouth on your cheek.
  • He loves to go outside, and will go anytime it is allowed.
  • He loves nursery, and is good friends with the nursery leaders.
  • Whenever he does something that results in one of his favorite things being taken away, or being moved, he begs to have it back by saying, "I sawy."
Oh, how we love this little boy!
