Happy Birthday!

Our Little Monkey turned 2 today. 2!!!! At his last check-up he weighed 26 lbs, and I don't remember how many inches tall...many. He hasn't gained any weight in a few months, but keeps getting taller every day!
His favorite part about his birthday is a toss up between getting out of the church nursery (and going to the "big boy class") or playing with helium balloons.

Because we found gluten-free lasagna noodles, I made 2 lasagnas for tonight's supper. Daddy had to work until night church started, so after church we had a late supper and let him open a couple of presents. He could have opened as many as he wanted, but he was tired and after 2 he was done.
He opened a pig that looks like a piggy bank but you put big plastic coins in that Snug got him at a garage sale (LOVE those!). He uses the same one in therapy and has always loved it. He also got a pair of faux leather cowboy boots. I knew he wanted them because I had tried them on him at Wal-Mart and he cried when I took them off. When they went on clearance, I grabbed them up!MMMMMMM birthday cake! (Also gluten-free!)

Happy Birthday little man!
