two years

Today is Evan's second birthday. My second baby, my little blonde cherub, my whirling dervish, my snuggly child, my banshee, my unpredictable, uncontrollable, charming, loving, darling baby boy.

I feel like, in many ways, this has been the Evan Blog, chronicling his growth and development as well as my challenges and difficulties in raising a child so much like me in some ways, so I won't write much. It's hard for me to put this love for him into words anyway.

We had a small birthday party on Sunday, for which I made a Totoro cake:

Evan's very excited about a new sand digger from Aunt Kim and Uncle Jon:

And he's already been having a lot of fun with the caterpillar tunnel Aunt Ren and Uncle Mike gave him:

And here are the boys enjoying a new book from Grandma:

It's hard to believe we're at two years already. In some ways it feels like the time has just flown by, but in other ways it seems we've only just begun.

Happy birthday, Evan!

He is losing his baby fat and looking more and more like a big boy all the time. Happy belated birthday, Evan!
