Birthday Wishes and Tags

Jack turned two today. We started the day with candles on a pancake and singing "Happy Birthday" then on to school where he had cookies with his friends. Then home to watch Cars and play with his trains. Then a quiet night with Mom and Sam. I can't believe it has been two years. Where did the time go? What I hope to remember most about him right now is his learning to talk voice, his kissing games, love of trains, the way he runs everywhere he goes, how much he loves his brother and dad, how he loves to chase, his chubby cheeks, how he says hand when he wants to take you and show you something, and how he says Amen several times after every prayer. I love you so much Jack....you make me proud to be a mother.




On to the tags. I have been tagged twice this week. So kind of both Erin and Jessica.

OK...Here are the rules!Link to the person who tagged you, and post the rules in your post
Share 7 random/weird facts about yourself Tag 7 random people at the end of your blog and link to their blogs Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

So here goes...7 random things about myself.

#1 - I fall asleep in my clothes...a lot...my husband does not understand this. It does not bother me that bad. If I am not sleeping in my clothes then I sleep in soft nighties. I love them.
#2 - I love soft things. I will sit and rub them and cuddle them.
#3 - I have a really strong sense of smell. I HATE STINKY THINGS!
#4 - I have been to Disney World over 20 times...and still LOVE it.
#5 - I act silly...really silly where my kids will probably think I am crazy. I break out in song or dance a lot and come up with crazy dares and usually try to get others involved.
#6 - My car is ALWAYS a mess. No matter how hard I try it gets messy again.
# 7 - I am spoiled by my husband. He usually entertains my every whim, vacations, remodels, decorating, etc. He brings me water to bed and turns out all the lights.

So cute! You're right, they do grow up fast! It's so funny that we totally blogged about similar things today without reading each other's posts first! Too funny!
I didn't mention it but my other son Alex had his two year checkup today also. It's a couple months early, but they did it anyway since it's easier to see them both at the same time. Anyway, he didn't take it well, he screamed and cried about everything, and especially the shots! Hope your little boy does well tomorrow! Have a great night!

Jack is a cutie! My sons is 15 months old so he is starting to talk and, of course, INTO EVERYTHING!!! I spend my time following him and picking up after him. But, it is absolutely wonderful! Happy Birthday to Jack!
