The BIG 2

I just got back from the doctor for Aiden's 2 year checkup. Of course I wasn't surprised to find out that he is 37.5 inches tall and 31 lbs. That means he is 99% for height and 90% for weight. He is a big boy, is anyone really surprised? Here are more pictures of what he has been up to lately.

He loves playing in the clothes hamper with, of course, no clothes on
A great new spot just his size is the cupboard in our bathroom

I think he is growling like a shark?

Happy Day!!

That's how Aiden says Happy Birthday. I can't believe he is two years old! His birthday was on Wednesday and we had his birthday party on Thursday. On Wednesday he wanted orange juice and strawberries for breakfast, I added pancakes and eggs to that menu. After that we went to the doctor for an ultrasound. I am pregnant with baby #2 and we got to see his baby SISTER! We are so excited and completely shocked that we are having a girl. She will have to learn to be tough with Aiden as her big brother.

After that we went to Aiden's favorite place, the park, and let him play for a while. For lunch we had the classic pb & j with of course, more strawberries. After his nap, we had volleyball lessons and practice so he hung out at the gym for a while before Trent could take him home and make mini pizza's for dinner.

We had his Elmo Birthday party at the park on Thursday because our apt is so small, the weather was pretty nice and Aiden loves the park. We had cake and ice cream and then opened presents. We stayed for a while and played at the park and had a little accident that made Aiden's lips look like the lady from Best in Show...aka huge! Poor guy, he just keeps falling and getting hurt somehow.

Some of Aiden's favorite things are Elmo, Elmo movies, his Elmo blanket, cars, dancing, music, shoes, not wearing clothes, orange juice, treats, jumping, strawberries, the park, climbing in things, making messes, Sesame Street, singing, playing with my kitchen appliances, gum, phones, friends, and family (especially Grandpa's). He is constantly on the move and keeps us very busy. I laugh really hard at him at least once a day. He is talking more and more everyday and that makes it so much easier to understand and compromise with him. He loves helping us with whatever we are doing and loves to see what's going on. He loves babies and is obsessed with blowing raspberries on my stomach. He is going to be a great big brother. We love him so much it's unbelievable.
