I am excited that I am getting this post done in the same month as the event happened! A few weeks ago, Dylan turned TWO! And he was so excited about it! That morning, after dropping Jake off at school, I took him to Krispy Kreme for a doughnut treat.
That afternoon while he was napping, Jacob and I made his birthday cake and wrapped up his presents. When daddy came home he had a birthday balloon from Nonnie and Jacob declared that it was time for Dylan to open his presents.
We had some friends in town that were staying with us, so we all enjoyed a nice dinner outside before it was time for cake.
Then it came time to blow out his candle
Ever since his birthday Dylan has been walking around singing “Happy Dylan…Happy Dylan” which is his own version of the birthday song.
I think they liked the cake
When we moved, it became quite a trek to visit the boys pediatrician, but I liked him, so I kind of lagged on finding a new one. After talking to a fellow mom who is also one of the doctors I used to work with, she recommend someone whose office is really close to our house. So we had Dylan’s 2 year old check up with their new pediatrician, who I really like. He is a healthy boy and checked out great! When talking about how tall he is, his doctor said that both our boys are projected to be at least 6 feet tall and Dylan is likely to be 6′ 2-3″. Maybe we will have a basketball player on our hands, he is our athlete after all. Dylan is currently 3 feet tall and weighs 29lbs 9.6oz. He did get one shot and the nurse was fantastic and SUPER fast, Dylan didn’t even have a chance to think about it and start crying, another plus for the new doctors office!
Dylan very quickly grew out of the baby phase and is more and more independent every day. He is my hot and cold kid. He goes from being happy, silly, playing to throwing a complete fit in just a matter of seconds. We are experiencing the terrible twos this time around. But he is also such a love and a snuggler. He usually doesn’t want to just sit in my lap, he has to have my arms completely wrapped around him like a harness. He often wants me to hold him or carry him around and it is getting really hard to do that for extended periods of time since he is so heavy! He is my chowhound and will eat pretty much anything, except for veggies. Most days I make a double serving of my lunch because he often hijacks whatever I am eating for himself, even though he already had his lunch. He has 3 of his two year molars in so we are almost done with the teething pains. He still adores Jacob and when they are not fighting, they really have a great time playing together. He is a parrot and has been copying everything we say, and picking up new words everyday and stringing a few words together. Especially with the amount of talking his brother does, I can’t imagine how many words he has absorbed already. If we ask Jacob a question, after Jacob answers us, Dylan automatically gives his answer too. He will not be left out of any conversation. His favorite song is Baa Baa Black Sheep and sings it all day and requests it every single night before bedtime. This is my kid who is happy to have his picture taken, so I give you his 2 year old picture with Giraffe and Woolly Mammoth.
Happy Birthday to my sweet blue eyed boy!
