i can't believe my baby is two (updated)

two years ago today, we were welcoming a new baby into our family. we had been a family of six for nearly nine years and we were all excited to become a family of seven. everyone finally got their baby brother. i can not imagine our life as a family without jacob. he has been such a joy to us all. we laugh and laugh more than ever because of his cute ways. we had a little party for him tonight with just us and his grandparents. i think he had a great time being the center of attention, because that is never the way it is around here normally, and opening his presents and, of course, eating cake. here is jacob's 2nd birthday in pictures with a little video to share too.

happy 2nd birthday my sweet boy

first thing this morning grandma judy came by to be the first to wish you a happy birthday! she brought you your own little personal cake and lit your candles so you could blow them out! you thought that was pretty cool.
then later on that evening we celebrated your birthday with your whole family. mommy made this cake for you. i am not the best cake decorator but i think you liked it. you are not that hard to please yet. so, i was not under too much pressure.

mommy loves you so much even though you would not smile and were being so silly for our picture together!

i think that you enjoyed every part of your birthday! you are quite a two year old! you make my life so fun!!



I think you know by now that all the boys in this family play baseball and everyone is pretty excited that you seem to love it too already.

you wore out every bicep at the party tonight swinging you in your new swing.

and you were just a little excited about getting your diego bike! i think that you loved turning two!!
i always want to remember what you were like when you were two because you are a pretty fantastic two year old!
take a peek of his day is action





i can't believe that my baby is two!

Happy Birthday to your sweet little boy!
I love these pictures of him and his cute blond curls because it reminds me of when my son was 2, now 7 and we let his hair get longer and curly and he has redish hair so it just looked adorable. Keep those curls as long as you can. I think we finally cut his when he was 3 LOL!
Hugs to you my friend.

Aw, I loved the videos! So fun to watch Jacob on his special day. I think maybe he wants to be 'one' cuz he's having too much fun to go on to two!

Beautiful family, Christy!

I remember my guys being little and dancing (like one of the pictures). We're a soccer family (only one played baseball for more than a year). Happy 2 Years Old! You lucky lady - At least 8 more years of being the Star!

What a joyful birthday! I thought your cake was PERFECT! I bet you are one tired lady after such a big day!

Blessings on you and your son for this Birth Day!

Christy,

Those videos are so cute. I love that he still thinks he is one. LOL He is loving that bike too and I know that JOsiah is going to be the best big brother and play catch with him a ton. So sweet.

Life Laugh Latte said...

First...Happy Birthday Jacob! Second...love the..."NO...I 1!" So typical of age two isn't it!
Third...love the teenager with the two colors of socks on. I did that all the time at her age!
Fourth...I was the youngest of 4 kids by a longshot. The closest sibs were 7, 10, 12 years older. So I remember how much I cherished being the focal point. Getting to make some decisions about what we did. It just so rarely happened. Thanks for sharing your special day yesterday with us! Holly:)
