2 years old!

Saturday was Nathan’s 2nd birthday. He’s such a big boy now!

Some fun things we love about Nathan:

He loves to sing. We often hear him singing little songs that he made up. His favorite (and ours too) goes like this, “me me me . . . SOOOONG!” I have no idea where he came up with it, but it’s so funny!

He has recently become very interested in babies. Let’s hope that lasts!

Nathan knows colors and is working on shapes. He’s so smart!

Nathan is really good about folding his arms for prayer, but he usually shouts “APEN” about 5 words into it.

Nathan is VERY stubborn and determined, sometimes a little too determined.

Nathan is a very polite boy. He’s so good at remembering to say please and thank you, and most recently “your wa-cone”, which he says to himself after saying thank you.

I don’t know where it came from, but Nathan has crazy wavy hair that seems to go everywhere!

Nathan loves cars and trucks. Anything with wheels is a truck and must be driven around.

(Nathan had to have all the trucks in sight at the computer with him.)

Nathan is still definitely a “mama’s boy” but he loves to have fun with his daddy too. Ryan always says, “Hey, Bub!” to him, so now he calls Daddy “Bub” too.

One of my favorite things Nathan has been saying lately is, “Wow, cool!” He just sounds so grown up!

Nathan has recently gotten really picky about what clothing he wears, and prefers to pick it out himself. He also likes to pick the color of his diaper.

(The other night, Nathan couldn’t decide which jammies he wanted to wear, so Ryan finally gave up and put all 3 pairs on him. Don’t worry, we took most of them off before bed time.)

Nathan is happy to go potty in his big boy potty when we ask him, but we aren’t too serious about potty training yet.

Nathan loves to hide, and often falls asleep with his face underneath his pillow.

Nathan is the greatest joy in our lives. He is so sweet and kind and wonderful. He makes us giggle and makes us happy every single day!

He is adorable with the best mix of both of you - and who knew about the wavy hair?? Where did that come from anyway? Now we need a video of the "me song". Glad he had a great birthday. Thanks for the updates and pictures!! Love to all.

What a big boy! He is growing up so fast! I love his hair and it's so fun to do yearly updates- you can look back at them in the years ahead and remember just how cute he was!
