To my little man

Dear Caden,
I hope you are having a good birthday. I can't believe you are already two years old. You have learned to say, "I two!" and you try to hold up two fingers, but the other fingers just won't cooperate! It seems like I just had you. At age two, you love to sing and have books read to you. You love your older sister and miss her when she's gone to school. You love your "baby broder cooole" and get really concerned when he cries (aka "baby crying!") You are my sanity. You give the best hugs and kisses in the world (I especially like it when you have to kiss my forehead, my nose, my chin, and both cheeks before bedtime...it melts my heart). If I ever say "Ow!" you always ask me "okay mom?" It is fun for me to watch you grown and learn. You can already count and do your alphabet. We are working on colors, but I'm not too worried about them because you are very quick and pick up on things fast. I love watching you play by yourself. Today you were playing with your tractors and calling them daddy and asking how they were....then you would bang/crash them together and laugh. You love to hide them and ask me, "where'd tractors go?...they hiding!" and they you say, "there they are!" You love to run and jump (well, it's not really a jump, but we are working on that skill) and oh my you love to swing on the swings, which is funny because you used to hate them with a passion. Now, however, you say, "higher! higher!" and laugh the whole time. You are very special and I love you very much. Happy birthday little man!
Birthday pictures of the big day! We had Cadens favorite for dinner: pb & honey sandwiches. We made a snake cake. I was hoping it would be cuter, but thats what we ended up with.
We had Issac & Melanie over for cake & presents and that was his birthday. My little two year old. Crazy stuff.

I think the cake is adorable. As for that relaxation stuff--just turn of the teachers voice and pretend to be a cat.

ummm....that picture with him in the water with his swimsuit on and the title of birthday pictures under it had me curious. It's not that warm there is it? I understood when I saw the rest of the pictures:)

Very cute "letter" to Caden. Cute boy too!

Those big blue eyes of Caden's,he is a doll. I agree he does give the best hugs and he's only seen me like 5 times his whole life. That's pretty cool he's playing some type of version of hide and seek at 2 years old. jacob just started doing that after he played hide the spoon with carol lee at christmas...wait a second, myabe that's why Caden is playing it??
