Happy Birthday Wil
You are two! How is this possible?!? We celebrated YOU last Sunday, March 25. We had a fishie party because you're really into fish these days. Here are the cupcakes I made you... I tried to be Super-Mom (and grandma tried to be super-Nama) by making these a few days early and freezing them. They were cute until the M&M's started to melt when I took them out of the freezer. Then the fish started looking like blobs. Colorful blobs, at least. There is NO reason for me to be confessing this to you, but darn, we tried so hard.
We decorated, of course!
Those streamers are suppose to be waves.
You said, "oh wow" when you noticed them.
All of your grandparents came. Uncle Nino and Auntie Ala came too. You got to invite one friend... you chose your BFF Bronson, of course. Thank goodness you two are such great friends because Bronson's Mommy is my best friend... funny how that works out!
You got an obnoxious amount of fabulous gifts: baseball gear, a new kite, a bubble lawn mower, a new picnic table for the deck, a beautiful hand-crafted wooden rocking chair from Grandpa Fontana (Bumpa), new clothes, books, summer beach gear, and a whole lot more!
Your Grandpa Geurts (Poppa) made you a sandbox. You helped Daddy and Poppa build it.
You loved it immediately. Hopefully this will keep you in one place this summer!
You also got a brand-new, big boy bike from your Uncle Nino.
Every boy needs a bike for his second birthday, right ?!
P.S. WEAR YOUR HELMET AND SHOES, child!
You even blew out your candle all by yourself this year.
Is it normal that this makes me want to cry. How did you get so big?
What a difference a year makes!
But, I will admit, I think your most favorite present this year has to be your little brother. I honestly cannot believe how much you adore him. Just a secret between you and me... I thought you'd be a wreck upon his arrival. You know, melt-down city, totally jealous. I didn't think you'd allow me or your Dad to ever hold him. But, nope. You think he's great!
You are by far, the COOLEST 2 year old I've ever known. The coolest kid I've ever known. You make me laugh out loud everyday. I could sit and stare at you all day too. You are just so amazing!!
I love you, Wilby!!!
