I was trying to get a video of him singing...he caught me.
remember the "I don't want to blow out my candles" birthday?
translation: "this way. go this way" (in references to Home Depot gameday...)
not too sure about this dancing stuff....
but was ready to rock by later in the evening.

saturday morning ritual: make coffee, get donuts, turn on college gameday...
wait. kirk, lee, chris, and desmond are 5 miles from our house? and we're going to sit here and watch in our pjs?
cue "we should just go. when else are we ever going to go" conversation.
and though we're not really spartans (and we're really not badgers) we packed up and partook in the hubbub.
and the little man did.not.want.to.leave. (see bottom right) "go back home depot!!!"

Even though the party is weeks past, and we've been telling everyone that we're "two" for awhile now, how could you not celebrate on your actual birthday?! So we did.
we opened some presents that came in from good friends and a cool aunt and uncle.
we heard the "happy birthday" song via phone and skype--several times.
we went to McDonald's for "fries" and played in their "play park."
we carved pumpkins. with big M's on them. go blue.
and the birthday sign and lights? well, they're still up too. and sometimes we turn on the lights because we kinda like them. and maybe, they'll just stay up for awhile.
happy birthday month, jman.

Ben took the day off yesterday, so we decided last minute (by last minute I mean decided at 9:15 and were on the road by 9:30--who says I'm not spontaneous?!) to head to Grandpa's farm. We thought it may be the only chance for the little boy (and his dad, let's be honest) to ride in the 'boncine' (which in the 50+ times I've heard about it, has actually finally become 'combine') this fall.
I know you can't really see his face, but picture a lot of excitement.
the day was much too exciting for a nap...until we got in the car...

sometimes I can't even come up with what it is I did during the day--though I did stuff all day. it seems like the "normal" doesn't really constitute "something" and so then, I've done nothing. but I guess we're fed, and dressed, and the house is usually (sorta) picked up. and then there are the two hours that you spent at the allergist getting a flu shot because your little one is allergic to eggs--and you'd rather not remember that anyway...

We had a Thomas the Tank Engine party for Jonah on Sunday (or "Nomas Party" if you ask him). Yes, it's a couple weeks early, but we've got a busy month--you know with a new baby and stuff like that. Plus, both "gandpa and gandma"s were in town...what more could you ask for when celebrating year 2?! (and you would think I could have gotten some pictures of J with the people at his party. But I didn't...so...sorry 'bout that).
Though he's been blowing out everyone else's birthday candles for the past 6 months. He wasn't going to blow out his...no idea why. However, he has been talking about the cake, candles, and how he wouldn't blow out the candle for the past couple days...??? Kids...
New bike = proud toddler.
And our ever expressive present opener...who, among many other wonderful things, received a "JOHN DEERNNNNN!!!"
Try two on the candle thing. Yup. Not happening you crazies....
