Pumpkin Patch and Birthday Bash!

Last Friday we met our friends from our Newcomers Kidsclub group at this great place right up the street from our house:

The kids had so much fun playing games, feeding goats, and picking out pumpkins. (Oh, and posing for pictures!)

The kids even got to walk through a corn maze.  It was a great family-run farm, right in our own town.

We celebrated Nathan's 2nd birthday on Saturday.  Since he is currently obsessed with Thomas the Train, we chose that as the theme.

And here's a picture of the same cake, after everyone had been served a piece, and I told Ella she couldn't have a 2nd piece.

Notice the perfect handprint?  Nathan didn't care, he was too involved with eating his cake and ice cream!

Nathan and Ella both got to hold baby Jaelyn and they were thrilled!

We're pretty sure he had a good time at his birthday party!

My Baby Boy Turns Two

Ask Nathan how old he is, and he will proudly tell you that he is, "Five!"  I'm not sure why, but he has decided that he is five years old, not two.  And don't try and tell him otherwise, because he will get very angry, and then very high-pitched in nature.

Nathan is my little comedian.  He makes me smile and laugh out loud every single day.  He brings so much joy into my life.  He has a big heart and says, "Luf you," and "Big hug."  Or, if I'm singing in the car, he might just yell at me, "Stop it!."  Oh well...

He runs everywhere and when he stops, he fininshes off with a little jump.  He loves to jump on the trampoline and play in the sandbox.  He tries to do everything that Ella does and wishes that he could stay at Preschool, just like his big sister.

I can't believe it's been two years since the nurse pulled the emergency cord and called for any available doctor to come deliver this little boy...he was just ready to come into this world!
