It's rough being two.

Our morning started with a little bit of this (major meltdown at Target cause I wouldn't buy him a Darth Vader mask for "his birthday")
But luckily, he forgives easily (at least with some bagels and hot chocolate).

Busy boys.

I'm sure I've said this before, but we rarely ever spend a whole day at home (let alone the morning). Between school, the gym, playdates, errands, etc. we always find ourselves on the go. Not the case today. We laid low and the boys played and played and played...  Playing Starwars, fire/police station house, sesame street house, Thomas the Train, dress-up, hockey, cars and construction, buzz & woody, super heroes, arts & crafts, soccer, and dance party all BEFORE 11. Time for a movie, I'm tired.

Our little one hit the 2.5 mark on January 1, so I figure it’s an appropriate time to jot down some of the things I don’t want to forget about this age, so here it goes… You have to have your “owies” kissed. You have a crazy vocabulary and it’s scary some of the saying/expressions you've picked up from your brother and us. You are the most stubborn little boy EVER. When you’re about to do something naughty you stick out your tongue and get a very mischievous look. You are scared of everything at the moment, however you loved Santa. You love babies and ask if you can kiss every baby you see. You want to be held/carried 80% of the time (by me), and on the rare occasion that you do walk on your own in public you refuse to hold anyone’s hand. You love to snuggle. You have a crazy sweet tooth. You try to make friends with all kinds of weird strangers when out and about. You can go from hot too cold in a matter of seconds and you’re ability to turn your tears on  and off are unprecedented. You throw your whole body on the ground during a tantrum. Your brother is your idol and you repeat and do everything he does. You love super heroes. You insist on looking at a magazine when sitting on the toilet taking care of business. You have the itchiest little butt cheeks and whenever your undies are off you’re scratching them. You've been completely out of diapers(day & night) for 3 months now. You always have to pack something with you when leaving the house. When asking what you think is a serious question you raise your eyebrows and when your mad you furrow them to the point where it looks painful. You rarely ever eat all of your lunch or dinner so I have no idea how you keep growing so much. You have more facial expressions than any other kid I know and your personality is so quirky. You’re obsessed with chapstick. You always have to have a drink of whatever I am drinking. And you are pure joy.
