So, we officially have a 2 year-old. Here is a picture from when he was approximately 2 days old and then from the past week. I can hardly believe it's the same person!
Balloons from his Birthday party last weekend. He's been playing with them ever since and I'm not quite sure what will happen when they pop or if he'll just drag them around on the floor when the helium finally dies!
This is the face I got after trying many times to have him hold still long enough for me to get a picture. These digital cameras sometimes aren't fast enough! Anyway, in case you couldn't tell he was saying "cheese".
Playing with Travis in the water spray. Mitch had a blast and didn't even care when he got splashed in the face.
Watermelon was also a big hit with the kids...here's Samantha, Elliot and Mitch all asking for more and waiting for me to hand it out like it was Halloween!
Okay, so most people probably won't be able to figure out what is on the cake but it's supposed to be a "green line train" which is one of the lines of the Portland light rail. Mitch thought it was cool, so that's all that really matters. I don't think I would have won any cake decorating contests though...maybe next year.
This is how I found Mitch sleeping the other morning, blanket over his shoulders and his friend, Kirby on top. How he got that way, I have no idea!
Mitch's friends Sammy and Travis got him this awesome lawnmower for his birthday. I'm not sure if he loves it or the balloons more!
So, here's Mitch today, on his actual birthday. He had a crown from school that he mainly kept on his head because he was distracted by opening presents.
Trying it out outside. It seemed to get a little frustrating when on the incline back to the house but he's definitely understanding the concept of the pedals.
Here's another comparison picture...Mitch today at 2 years old and below at 1 month (and not looking thrilled to be sitting there!)
