At 5:34 am yesterday morning my baby little boy turned two!! How can that be? Where has the time gone?
In typical Noah fashion, bedtime was a fight the night before… and then he woke up again at 12:30am and didn’t fall back asleep until 2:30… he either had a bad dream, or he was afraid of turning 2! 😉 haha But it really wasn’t a laughing matter! I was dead tired and knew that my alarm would be going off sooner rather than later and just wanted Noah to fall asleep… which he did… on the couch downstairs… right when Abby woke up for her dark o’clock feeding… go figure. So I ended up sleeping on the couch because I didn’t want to risk moving him and having to go through the gigantic ordeal of getting him to fall asleep again.
We had his party at Noah’s Omi and Nonno’s house, which was great and very kind of them!! There was no way that we would have been able to fit everyone in our little place. Despite the lack of sleep the night before and the fact that he refused to sleep during the hour + drive down to my moms (he missed his nap entirely yesterday), Noah did great with very few (just 1 or 2) mini meltdowns all day long. I don’t know what he was most excited about… the toys, the cake or the fact that his bestest and most favorite cousin ever was there (okay, so E was his only cousin for the longest time, but he really does love her and the get alone great!)
I thought it was cute that while opening his gifts, Noah quickly realized that it would be much easier and faster to just turn the gift bags over and dump them out, rather than taking the gifts out of the bag!! In doing so, he could also quickly see which gifts were fun (toys and books) and which were boring (clothes)… he’s a smart one that kid of mine!
So without further ado, here are some pictures from his big day…
There’s no doubt about it, he had a great time… and was asleep within minutes of getting into the car!! hehe
