Brady's 2nd Birthday

We celebrated Brady's 2nd birthday with Elmo, a character he knows and loves. We decorated the house with Sesame Street decorations, lots of balloons, and made a very special Elmo cake. Brady was thrilled to come downstairs and find all the balloons and decorations. He had a special breakfast of banana bread - we even put 2 candles in it and sang happy birthday. After breakfast, Brady opened a few presents and enjoyed some time playing with his new things. Later that morning, our wonderful friends, Angie, Steve, and Kaelin came over to celebrate with us. Brady enjoyed their company and we all had Elmo cake together. After Brady's nap, he watched an episode of Elmo's world, opened a couple more presents, and we went outside to play bubbles, water balloons, and various other outdoor toys (Brady even pedaled the tricycle on his own for the first time!). We came inside, had a bath, and one of Brady's favorite things for supper (macaroni and cheese), followed by more Elmo cake with candles and happy birthday again. Afterward, Brady opened his last present and enjoyed an evening at home playing with all of his new toys. What a wonderful day for a 2 year old boy!! And he is such a wonderful 2 year old boy. We love him so very much and are incredibly thankful to have him in our lives.

Plenty of presents.

He was especially excited about the balloons all over the floor.
