Luke's 2nd Birthday

Can you believe that Luke is already 2?! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was bringing home a precious little baby home from the hospital, and here we are 2 years later with a toddler who is so loving, active, indpendent, and fun. He adds so much joy to my day and I am so thankful for him each and every day.

Right now Luke is very into being independent. He wants to do everything himself or to 'help mommy'. He has to put the soap in the washer, he has to bring in the trash can, he has to buckle his own car seat, etc, etc, etc. It is a battle, but a good battle each day. He loves any type of transportation, animals, Diego and Nemo. We are working on counting, one to one correspondence, letter recognition (mostly the letters in his first name), and his colors. Right now he counts like this '1,2,3,4,5,6,7, 14' and his favorite colors are blue and orange. He is a little sponge absorbing everything and learning new skills and words each day.

Anyways, we celebrated Luke's 2nd birthday this year with a construction theme. I tried to keep everything pretty small and simple. We had planned to have the party outside in our backyard and Andrew and my dad built Luke a sandbox, and we were just going to let the kids jump and play.  But on the weekend of his party it was very cold so at the last minute we had to move the party inside. We pushed back the furniture in the office and playroom and popped up a mini bounce house that Andrew's parents had and we just let the kids jump and play with the toys. They had a blast and it was very enjoyable morning.

Here are a few pictures of the party!

Here's to another year with a sweet little toddler!
