Yesterday was Chase's 2nd birthday. It's so hard to believe our little guy has been around for two years already!
We planned a Chase day for him. He opened his presents in the morning (Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head and car books) and played with the toys he got from his Me-Mom & Pop-Pop and Nee Nee & Poppi. We had hot dogs, homemade french fries and corn for dinner, plus a car cake (egg free of course!) and ice cream. Poor little guy hasn't been feeling too well and ended his day by throwing up twice. :-( He woke up this morning back to his normal cheery self thank goodness!
The boys couldn't resist the glasses. Chase has been trying to put everything on from the Potato Heads which is pretty funny.
The Potatoes watching Chase use his new Magna-Doodle.
Just to brag on our little guy for a minute. He is such a sweetie pie and we couldn't ask for a better son. In the last month his vocabulary has expanded at an astonishing rate. He tells us about paint on the walls, talks about our dining room as if he's always said those words and lets us know that the cat is using his potty in the basement. You never know what he is going to come up with or when he's been listening to you. It's so much fun watching him be able to communicate his thoughts and feelings to us.
Chase also started putting himself down for naps! Last Thursday he said "nappy nap" to me and went upstairs, closed his bedroom door and was quiet. I checked on him fifteen minutes later and he was sound asleep in his bed! He's gone upstairs on his own everyday since then and taken his nap. Incredible!
We're waiting for the next big snow so that he can get outside and run around in it. He loves the snow. His "S's" aren't too good so he tells us its "knowing" outside or that there's "know" on the ground. He can't get enough of the stuff.
We love his new sense of indepence but also the fact that he still reaches for us. I love when he reaches out and takes my hand to walk upstairs or to lead me around the house showing me things. His full on attack hugs are adorable and he makes the best kissing noises. If we hurt ourselves he is quick to give the "hurt" kisses and trusts that we will be all better. I could go on and on. Chase is our "little man" and we are so proud to be his parents. Happy 2nd birthday Bubby!

Alexa just had her one month well-visit and is up to 8lbs 4oz and grew a 1/2" so she is progressing really well.
The rest of the family is doing great. We're getting ready to celebrate birthday #2 with Chase shortly. Can't wait! Chase is repeating everthing we say anymore. I called myself a "ding-dong" at the dinner table the other night and he blurted out right away "ding-bong!". Howard and I couldn't help it and just cracked up. It's so much fun with him around.
Thankfully, things are going well in our household right now. We're going to try and keep it that way!
