Happy Birthday Aidan!!

Today we celebrated Aidan's 2nd year with us.  I can't believe he is already two!  As it is with Jacob, it still feels like yesterday that Aidan joined the family.  It's been amazing and entertaining watching him develop such a completely different personality than Jacob.  (Not that I expected them to be the same - it's just interesting to see how different they are!)  Aidan is and always has been our fearless child.  If he sees something he wants or thinks of something he wants to do - he just does it.  No thought needed.  I am still amazed that this child, who can trip on nothing walking down the hall, can climb on anything like he's a professional mountain climber and not fall down.  Aidan is typically a fairly easy going child.  He takes after his Daddy with that.  That is if it doesn't have to do with meal time.  Once you call for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it better be on the table.  There's no patience when it comes to food with this child.  And luckily he is a great eater!  Aidan is our entertainer, no doubt about it.  We laugh everyday with (or at) him, whether it be something funny he says, a funny face he makes or if he's falling down for the millionth time that day (of course not if he gets hurt)  One of my favorite things about Aidan is that he is my little snuggle bug.  He loves to cuddle and be close.  We love him very much and our so blessed to have him in our family.  I can't imagine life without him.  Oh, and of course, in true Aidan fashion, he has a huge bump on his forehead.  There isn't a major picture day (holiday of some sort) that Aidan doesn't have a bump on his head!  Oh well.  What can you do?

A quick look back

Trying to get a picture of the birthday boy, who was too interested in the balloons.

Enjoying his birthday donut

Jacob enjoys his donut too

Opening his first present

Checkin' out the tractor

We did go out to dinner to celebrate, but I didn't get any pictures of that.  Afterwards we headed home to open the rest of his gifts and eat some yummy cupcakes.

"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday dear Aidan . . ."

Blowing candles out can be really hard!

Umm, could I just open my present in peace please?

His own dump truck!

Super excited about play-doh!!!

Yummy cupcakes!!

Jacob was having fun making funny faces for the camera.  I'm only posting one. :-)

Enough, enough, no more photos!!!

Ok, one last one.  But I'm not giving you a real smile.
