Michael's firetruck cake I made him from scratch! Yes, I am proud :) It took about 5 things of red food coloring to make my icing red and not pink!

Compare Michael here at his first birthday party...
To his second! He has changed so much! This year he is running and talking and eating big people food and dancing and singing and has just gotten so smart :) I am so proud of our big boy! He loves The Little Einsteins and The Wiggles and Cars and Veggie Tales and his favorite color is blue. He loves to brush his teeth and take his baths and he loves his "guys" (Paci, bear blankie and doggie). He loves making his little brother smile and also loves to hide behind furniture and act silly. He loves being rocked and read to at bedtime and he loves "snuggles" with mommy and daddy. His favorite books right now are Thomas the Train and Goodnight Moon and he does realize when you try to skip words to get to the end of the book faster :) He knows all of his colors and is learning his ABC's and to count. He counts right now by saying "1, 2, 3, 5, 6!" He loves his hot wheels cars and has to have one with him wherever he goes. He is such a joy in our lives and it is so much fun being his mommy.
Blowing out his candles!
Finally digging in!
Opening gifts! This part was really funny because we were trying to go through it quickly because there were so many gifts and Michael would get so upset each time we had to pass on a new gift to get to the next one. He would laugh and then be crying the next minute. We probably should have waited and opened them later and let him enjoy them one by one. He got some amazing gifts though so thank you so much!
Michael: "I want that last toy back... now!!!"
"Okay, I am happy now."
