Ian's second birthday was a lot of fun. It actually started the day before his birthday. My mom and aunt gave me a baby shower for Sadie. Ian got presents from his aunts. He thought it was great that he got presents too. After a long day some of our friends came over to our house to hang out and give us a baby gift. We finally went to bed and the next day Ian woke up excited. He loved it when we sang Happy Birthday to him.
After breakfast we got ready and went to church. Part way through nursery we took Ian home to have a nap before the celebration started. I worked on making his Thomas cake and Ben made the chilli. After Ians nap, his cousins Taylor and Kori came over with a gift.
Soon all the grandparents came over and we had dinner. After dinner Ian got to open all his presents. He had a ton and was so excited!!! He loved it and wanted to stop and play with each thing after opening it. After opening his gifts, we sang to him and he got to blow out his candle. We had mint ice cream and cake. Ian loved it. He played with all his new toys for a long time, and then took a fun bath. After his bath we read stories and rocked for a bit. Then I went and laid with him. He fell asleep quickly after a fun, exciting and busy birthday!
I am so greatful for my wonderful son. I can't believe he is already two. He is so adorable and does the funniest, and sometimes strangest things. He always makes me laugh. We ask him how old he is and says "two" in the cutest way and holds up one finger from each hand. He is so funny! Thanks to everybody that helped us celebrate Ian's birthday and for the thoughtful gifts.
