He loves his new blimp so much he even took his nap with it....

Anyway, every time he sees this picture during the slide show he gets way excited and says, "piglet!" I thought it was pretty funny and cute, but now I think it's hilarious after I just looked at a picture of piglet who is sporting a very similar onesie to baby Jordan!
I was so excited how the cake was looking and then I went to write the stupid words. I was using a decorating tip that was WAY too big and I ran out of room. I had to scrape some of the words off so the rest of the frosting got all lumpy and uneven. Oh well, I think it still turned out okay. Jordan was SO excited for the cake so it made it worth it. It's all he's been talking about.
So we sang to Jordan and I cut him a piece to eat. He went to dig in with his hands and I guess he didn't like getting dirty because he asked me to wash his fingers then asked for a fork. How old is this kid!?

Jordan loved playing in these puddles left behind from the high tide. They were pretty deep in some places, and they were perfect temperature since they had been warmed by the sun. Jordan loves the water, but hates the waves, so these were perfect!
The hot sun was very nice at the beach, but made for some scorching sand. Jordan had to wear shoes everywhere.
My handsome 2 year old. (With lots of sand on his face!)
Making sand waterfalls.

Yesterday was Jordan's 2nd birthday. We spent the whole day at the beach--pictures will be coming. Until then here is a little video of Jordan's first two years. Watch my newborn baby grow up to a little man right before your eyes! Happy Birthday Jordan!! WE LOVE YOU!!

Benji has had five knee surgeries in his life which has left quite a large scar down his knee. Today he asked Jordan what it was and Jordan said, "knee waterfall!"
This week Jordan finished his first art project.....on my cabinets. He has never liked coloring, drawing, painting, or doing any art project. Boy, was I just pleased as punch that he decided to start on my white cupboards with ball point pen. When I brought him in to have a talk he got way excited before I could say anything and said, "Jordy draw WATERFALLS!" (or as he says it, "Doughy draw WATCH-IT-WALLS!") He was so proud of his artwork!

Just to prove it, here is Jordan pointing after I asked where his chompers are. It may look like he's pointing to his mouth to where his actual chompers are located, but when I asked him where his teeth are he actually pointed inside his mouth.

1. The child gets to choose where they go.
2. No distractions (cell phone, radio, etc.)
We kind of cheat though because Jordan isn't quite old enough to tell us where he wants to go. He still has fun though, and I think Benji has done a good job choosing places that Jordan would have chosen himself. Eventually Jordan will take turns going out on turn outs with his siblings, but for now he gets to have every Saturday with his daddy. Last Saturday Jordan was lucky enough to go to a baseball game with Benji. Jordan loved it! They sat right behind the dugout and had fun cheering, talking to the mascot, dancing, and eating french fries! Woooo!! Jordan was quite a ham and had every person in the crowd in the palm of his hand (one guy gave him a foul ball he caught!)
This is why you can't tell Jordan to smile for the camera! I have to ask him look at me if I want a normal picture.
Benji and Jordan saying good-bye to mom. Poor mom had to stay home and take a relaxing bath, catch up on some TV shows on-line and go to bed early. Poor mom! :)
We have some cute videos of Jordan at the game and a few other turn-outs that I want to put on the computer. They will be coming shortly.

I wish I would have combed his bed head hair and fixed his tag. Oh well, it's more real this way! :)
Jordan got some fun sports side walk chalk in his Easter basket. He loved coloring the blimp I drew for him.

Every time I draw on his hands we have to have a talk about how only mommy can draw on Jordan's hands. I just know this little tradition is going to come back and bite me in the behind one of these days. (Doesn't every mom of a toddler have a permanent marker story?) Hopefully it wont come back to haunt me in 18 years or so with a grown Jordie coming home with a blimp tattoo somewhere on his body!! :)

This was the only picture of me. Of course it was after I washed my face and at about 1 am. BLAH!
