Look who's two!

Warning: I have a NICU pic that may be upsetting.




















My Xander is two now. We didn't have a party. We had a few friends over for barbecue and cake. It was low key and darn near perfect.

Here he is two years ago. He's a few hours old. 5lbs 4 ounces.

And here is my precious little monster, today, at age two. 28.6 lbs, 35.5 inches and pure terror.

Sweet, isn't he? :laughing9: We took family pics and he acted like a savage wild monster. I love this pic though because it captures exactly how he felt about the day.

Finally, two pics of his freaking awesome cake!

    I love the look on his face in his birthday picture!! Too funny! And hell yeah, that's an awesome cake! Did you make it or have it done or what?

    Thank you, Iris, InternetChick, and Shelli!

    Shelli, I didn't make the cake. I have zero patience. One of my girlfriends did it. I am trying to get her to start a cake making business.

    Aw, he has come so far! He looks so grown-up now! I love the outfit he's wearing, and his facial expression is awesome. He's so handsome. Happy Birthday little man.

    Happy Birthday Xander!! Soooo handsome!

    And if it helps you to know - with Karan we went through the terrible "one-and-a-half". So far "two" has been a lot easier since he's talking more (and hitting and screaming less!).

    Thank you all so very much for looking!


    Po, he is a -huge- Cars fan. It's so strange because he never watched TV and then one day he was obsessed with all things Mater and Lightning.


    MS, I thought he was a terrible one and a halfer but this weekend it got worse. It's like he woke up and knew he was two and supposed to be a meanie. He's actually started throwing himself down on the carpet and fake crying.


    Iris, he still lets me dress him up! I have several pics of him wearing my shoes. He loves them!

    Elise pulled this one at about 1 1/2. At first, I was like "What in the world?" But then I just laughed every time she did it. Once she figured out she wasn't manipulating me with her fake tantrums, she stopped. :laughing9:

    He is so handsome- one of the prettiest boys I have seen.
    (It kind of looks like he's flippin the bird in his picture :laughing9: )
    Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
    and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    Thank you, IC and Realistic.

    Realistic, that's totally what he looks like!

    Gemini, I hope he gets bored with it soon. Right now, I alternate between giggles and wanting to put him outside.
