Judah turns 2!!

Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2012 already!! Our sweet boy turned 2 on Christmas Eve, so we have had a packed holiday/birthday season!! But it has been fun! Last year, we moved 2 days after his birthday! He didn't understand it, he was really sick, and he touched the candle on his cake and got burned by it! Then he was afraid of his cake and wouldn't eat it!! So, needless to say, it was a little traumatic last year!!
This year, it was nice to be settled in a house and not have all the craziness of moving during his birthday! I can't believe we have been in Oklahoma a year already!! Judah understood a little more this year that he got to open a bunch of presents and was saying "birr-day" all day! It was so cute!!

I know people will give me a hard time about this, but I did put his presents under the tree and some of them were wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. People who have December birthdays are so adamant about splitting up the birthday and Christmas, but look, he's 2! He really didn't care this year!! He just enjoyed ripping open all his presents and seeing what was inside!!
It didn't take long for him to get the hang of opening all those presents!! And the fact that the next day he got to do it all over again! I think December 26th was a letdown!!
He had a little birthday party at grandma's house with one of his favorite dinners, lasagna, and a time of opening presents with the family!! He had a Thomas the Train birthday party and got lots of fun new trains and toys!!
Here he is playing with his first train set!! He is really into trains, trucks, tractors, planes and cars so he got lots of "boy toys" for his birthday!! Hopefully he will trade in the dolls and dress-up stuff for these new toys!!
He is at such a cute age right now and is talking a lot! I think this is one of my favorite ages! He is really such a sweet boy and is a lot more laid back and obedient than Maddy was at that age!! He is truly a joy and we loved celebrating his 2nd birthday!! We are so blessed to have him as part of our family!!
Happy 2nd Birthday, Judah!!
