Happy Second Birthday

So, we are now “officially” in the Terrible Twos! However, I have heard the rumor that the Terrible Twos is not a statement that terrible behavior begins at the age of two, but rather terrible behavior lasts for two years. Grrrreat …

The cake turned out after all. I felt for sure it would be a “train wreck” – hahaha, I am so funny – but it ended up looking kinda cool. The boys kept on calling it “cars”, and Hayden kept saying “beep, beep, beep” and backing up whenever he saw the yellow cake (it really did look like a school bus), but I think if you looked at it sideways with one eye closed it resembled a train.

The “Choo Choo Choo, Hayden, Tanner, & Noel Are Turning Two” Cake

The boys were much less messy than they were last year. I was very thankful for that! I think our awesome smock/bibs from IKEA helped, too.

The boys got a bunch of fun new toys. The favorites ended up being cardboard bricks – they loved making towers and then knocking them down – and the Step 2 Kitchen. We only gave them a couple dishes, pots, and pans because they really don’t get what to do with all the food yet. Plus, I really don’t feel like cleaning up 150 different plastic food pieces every night.
