"Want some eggs, Mama?"

Say it aint so, this guy will be TWO YEARS OLD next month. Heavens, that went quicker than the first time we played this game {with big sister}. He is turning into a little boy, losing all signs of baby very quickly. We are still hanging on to the singing to sleep, diapers, and missing 5 outta 10 bites actually going into the mouth while eating ... but other than that he is well on his way to fully embracing toddlerhood. Evident by 1) his size 2) his temper 3) his running faster than mama speed capability.

He has a way with words, this one. Always catching strangers off guard when he starts conversations with them. If you ask him, he will tell you he is having a "Cat in the Hat birthday party" and that is he turning two. He tells me I'm a "special mommy" and the "best mommy" and he tells Lucca "I love you sooo much CocoBee". He tells us "my favorite part of the day is when Daddy comes home" and asks to jump on the trampoline and paint about 700 times a day.

He is a master at turning all the lights on and off and finding my car keys and making the car alarm go off daily. See also: opening the trunk. He is not super fun to take shopping, but he is super fun to skateboard with. And play soccer with. And play trains with. And sing with. And laugh with.

He has our hearts, that is for certain.

Poor little bud

This guy got hit with the same yucky bug that canceled Lucca's 4th birthday party. Fever, cough, cold & general discomfort. We have heard our happy boy cry more in the past two days than the past two years. And sleep? Only in mommy's arms. Somehow magically, I'm the only one yet to be taken down by this monster of a virus.

Wishing, hoping, praying the night is restful and the morning brings renewed health (and happiness) back to our Stone.

But on a side note, how major cute does his little baby face look in my arms? Come on.
