Birthday Pictures

Well, Brody has had a very eventful 7 days! He turned 2, had 2 birthday parties - one with just the 4 of us and then a bigger one with friends, and today he had his 2 year old well check up. Lots of twos, huh?

So, here are the stats and then tons of pictures. I have decided to quit physically scrapbooking since this is my record of my kids lives so there will start being many more pictures as they will one day have these blogs that I am having printed into hard back books. And, with life as busy as mine is, there is not 1 spare moment to scrapbook the "old fashioned way."

OK - Length 35.5 inches - 80th percentile
Weight - 25 pounds - 10th percentile
Developmentally - WELL ABOVE most his age - especially his communication/speech. Of course, I love to talk, his sister loves to talk, and for that matter so does his daddy, and lots of extended family so he got it honest! He is also my fearless little daredevil. He is ALL boy...there is no fear in his life right now. He jumps off of things, climbs up onto things that should not be climbed on, hops down the stairs, goes down humongus slides, jumps into the pool whether we are there or not to catch him, etc...He is just all boy. But I must say that this little boy is most definitly for sure a mommy's boy. I could eat him up most days. He is just that sweet.
NOW - on to pictures..

Brody was a bit cranky at first - cutting 2 year molars - but got really happy once the Tylenol kicked in

Sit and spins are awesome! The party was a really creative idea. Go Kelly.
