Yesterday we celebrated my sons 2nd birthday. It's such a wonderful experience being able to watch your child grow up and see how much information they soak up. B is a sponge and he picks up on everything we say or do. We have been preparing him and letting him know that his birthday is coming up and he's going to be two. So, yesterday morning before the hubby left for work we woke B up by singing happy birthday and his response was "mommy daddy birthday!", we thought that was so cute and we loved on him and told him how much we loved him.
Last year B had a huge birthday bash that I had planned out because it served two purposes.... him celebrating his FIRST YEAR of life and me celebrating my FIRST YEAR of surviving motherhood! But, this year I didn't plan for a birthday party and that was probably for the best because we have been very busy. However, we didn't do much yesterday because B woke up with a 101 fever and diarrhea so I kept him in, but that didn't stop us from enjoying each others company. I actually enjoyed the intimate celebration we had for Brandon and being able to let him know that he is loved and giving him ourfull attention. Here's a pic below of him yesterday eating his breakfast and then devouring his cupcake:

Tell me what you think.....Do you believe that kids should have a birthday party every year?
