* happy birthday beckett *
two years old
two years old
we had a little gift-opening, cupcake-eating shin dig for our little two year old birthday boy today
it mostly consisted of atticus opening gifts for beckett
and beck being real excited
naturally beck choose to "cheese" for the camera instead of smile...
but he did get super excited watching atticus open his presents for him
the anticipation was overwhelming!
and such awe as each treasure was revealed
we took the kids to target a couple nights ago to pick out toys with the valentine's day
money that my parents sent to them - beck fell in love with these joker and batman toys (no surprise)
and he could barely believe his eyes when he discovered that we had gone back to get them for his birthday
as usual he had to stop and play with each toy as he opened them
this drove atticus crazy! we had to practically restrain him from opening beck's presents before beck was ready
big brother helping with present-opening
and since we just can't have too many bat caves around this joint...
then came candle-blowing time
beck was not having it! for some reason he was totally afraid of the flame!
it was pretty hilarious - here he is actually backing away from his cupcake and candle.
it should come as no surprise that atticus had to blow out his candle for him.
then when i took the candle off and tried to hand the cupcake to beck, he would have nothing to do with it!
only a fresh cupcake would do, not one tainted by this candle nonsense!
fresh cupcake = birthday success
again, no surprise here...
cute brothers cupcaking it up
baby sister attended the festivities as well
she pretty much just spent the whole time being cute
and perhaps thinking that her big brothers were lunatics
and snuggling up with dad
11 weeks old today and looking so fancy
well my sweet beck - what can i say?
you are simply the most precious little soul in all this world
i love your smiles and your giggles and your snuggles and everything about you
you've become rather crafty in the art of crib escapage in recent weeks, even with the mattress
on the floor inside the crib and sheet over the top tenting you in - somehow you still escape.
you are also climbing everything! especially your changing table, which you love to launch off from like you're taking flight
you talk and talk and talk and repeat everything you hear - which makes me laugh all day long
you're a sweet little soul, but also a gassy little soul and every time you let one slip you get a sly look on your face and sing, "toooooooot!'
you're so polite and say "peese!" and "dank you" and "sorry" with a hug and kiss anytime your naughty
and i've never known such spongebob/batman obsessions could exist until you came along
happy birthday my chubby little marshmallow
you are so delicious
