Saturday was Chance's 2nd birthday, and it marked some big developments for him! He started going potty, and he started sleeping in his own big bed!
I had attempted to plan a party, but I knew it would be tough with craziness of being in between Christmas and New Year's. I soon realized it'd be better to cancel and postpone. Chuck thought I was a bit weird when I suggested doing "half" birthdays instead, celebrating his birthday in June, when he was first born. But after seeing this party fall through, he gets it now. :) So we'll be celebrating June 29th.
But on the big day, Chuck's parents came to visit, and we had our own little party.
[Chance decided to do some quality control and taste test the cake for us.]
[It's not the greatest photo, but I thought it was so sweet when Chance and Grandma rode the horsey!]
[Chuck's a lot like his dad, can you see the resemblance?! heheh.]
Also, here are a couple of the Christmas gifts the boys have been enjoying:
[I thought Moonsand looked so cool, like an improved "Playdoh." But I was wrong. It's kinda just normal sand that's a little sticky..and just as messy. But the boys enjoyed it anyway.]
[When Aunt Desi gave Charlie a drum set, I was a bit annoyed. Just what they need, more noisemakers ;) I always thought drum sets were a cruel joke on the parents. But actually, once we got it together, it's really kinda cool. I can't believe I just said that! hehe. So Dez, if you read this..."Thanks."]
