Birthday #1 and Birthday #2

In March, we celebrate two Birthdays!! This year Mama's Boy turned 2 on the 14th, and Big Brother turned 3 on the 30th. I decided not to have big birthdays for either one. Instead we just invited some immediate family over for cake and ice-cream.

On Mama's Boy's birthday, I made him a chocolate cake, with his favorite candy on it... M&Ms! If you really know Mama's Boy, you know he LOVES trains! We got him some Thomas the train track and cars. He plays with them everyday and loves carrying the train cars around. Mama's Boy has grown so much this year! He LOVE LOVE LOVES to talk! He repeats anything you say. He is ALL boy. He loves playing in the mud, running around outside, running his trains and cars along the walls, playing in sand and with rocks. He also likes to bite his brother, and spends many a times in time out. But he is so loving too. He gives kisses and hugs. He really loves to share and plays well with other kids. He loves to sit on Mommy's lap and cuddle, but he loves going places with daddy. He eats pretty much anything and is literally an endless pit when it comes to food. He sleeps great. He naps great. He really brings so much fun and laughter into our home. Happy 2nd birthday Mama's Boy!!

For Big Brother's birthday, I made him a chocolate cake with oreos. Big Brother loves cookies. As well as lucky charms, fruit snacks, Costco pizza, apples, and yogurt. Big Brother got his first bike and a wagon. He can't ride the bike yet, but we are working on it. Both he and Mama's Boy love the wagon though. They want to be pulled all over the house! Big Brother is so sweet and tender. He just stands there and lets Mama's Boy bite and scratch him while he says, "no thanks, please stop". Of course Big Brother talks a lot also, only he is now talking in sentences and really comprehends things. This just boggles my mind, seeing him grow up so fast. Its so funny to hear him say certain things. You wonder how his mind is processing it. He loves watching movies. He would sit in front of the TV all day if we let him. We limit him to one movie a day, which he gets to watch while Mama's Boy takes a nap. He really loves books. Now, I find him flipping pages and reading (not really reading though) to Mama's Boy. I think its so cute! He loves letter and numbers, and will carry around puzzle pieces and blocks that have letters on them. Its really interesting how obsessed he is with them. While he is much cleaner about things, Big Brother too loves to play outside. He is mostly a car boy, but he likes to play trains with Mama's Boy too. The two of them are such pals I LOVE it! I can tell when Big Brother is getting bored... if Mama's Boy has been sleeping for a long time, he will say, "mom, lets get Mama's Boy up, its time to play". He loves bossing him around (but in a sweet way most of the time). And Mama's Boy gladly follows, always up for anything. They truly are so fun to watch. And while it was a little hard in the beginning when I first had Mama's Boy so close to Big Brother, it really is so much easier now. It really makes me think that if I wait long enough, I could do another two really close. Right now... I still have three in diapers, so we are in NOOOOO rush. But I love seeing them as best buddies. And I think its funny that everybody thinks they are twins. We love our little boys and were so happy to celebrate their birthdays!
