Blake's 2nd Birthday

Blake's second birthday was nearly 2 weeks ago now. (It was August 28th-I know-I'm way behind on posting!) We ended up doing 2 separate birthday parties for him for each side of the family due to the family's schedules. I made a cake for my side and a big cookie for Rich's side of the family. (I didn't get a picture of the cookie, but I decorated them exactly the same!)

The cake for the little tractor lover. :-)



Blake trying to get his tractor off the cake. (He could have cared less about the candles!)



"Yes! I got my tractor!" ;-)



Morgan helped open all of Blake's presents. (We really should have not had him open the Duplos first. He cried when we took them away so he could open the rest of his presents.)

Morgan in on the present opening action again.



We got smart and had Blake open the clothes first! (He looks quite disappointed, doesn't he? No crying though!)


More presents.



Blake got his very own rocking chair from his grandma and grandpa. (Isn't it pretty!?)

I can't believe that my baby is two already. I really wish that I could stop time for a while and enjoy this age a bit longer. He is such a little sweetheart! He gives everyone hugs and kisses right now and makes a little 'muah' sound with the kisses. The hugs are cute too! He runs to the person with his arms out wide-adorable! I also love the little noises he makes when he is playing with his cars and tractors. And he picks up new words all the time now. I just love hearing his little boy voice and seeing his little sweet boy actions! I know this stage isn't going to last long, so I'm soaking up as much of it as I can for as long as it lasts. :-)
