Happy 2nd Birthday Aaron!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Banana Slices

Aaron's Birthday Breakfast made with LOVE

My son turns two today.  Two years old.  He's not even a baby anymore.  He's so wonderful and so smart and so loving.  He says new words everyday.  He says "please" and "thank you" and "excuse me".  He says "I love you, momma".  He knows just as many words in Spanish as he does in English.  He can count and read letters and numbers.  He knows basic colors.  He talks and sings -- he loves to sing.  He is a happy boy.

It's so crazy to see how fast they develop and grow in such a short time.  Really, if you think about it in terms of the span of your human life, the amount we learn while we are young is incredible.  And he is just like a giant, chubba sponge.  

On Sunday we had a birthday party for him and he had his Grandpa & Grandma Coblentz, tia Eva, cousins and friends to celebrate with him.  The theme was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and because I have been sick with a cold for the past week, all the planning and purchasing of party supplies was left up to Josh.  The party was a great success.  And thankfully we saw not one bit of Christmas wrapping paper or Christmas themed gifts!  So glad because seriously, I didn't want to have to disown anyone!  He received plenty of gifts, had an awesome cake and wonderful company.  He is definitely loved!

Of course, I am one of those people that just love him to death and I couldn't keep my kisses away from him so the day after his party, he came down with my cold.  Last night he threw up and was up every few hours because he was so stuffy.  Originally, I had planned for Josh and I to take Aaron out for a special pancake birthday breakfast (something I wanted to do every year) this morning but under the circumstances, I ended up making him a pancake breakfast instead.  I think he's feeling a bit better tonight, but he's still sick.  How much does that suck?  Poor kid.  But we're all taking good care of him.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful, perfect, angel babycakes.  We love you SO much!
