Turning Two

On Friday, July 3oth Jackson turned two years old. However, it was three weeks ago on a Tuesday that he really became a 2-year-old. I can remember the day because I woke up to screaming and nothing has been the same ever since. Temper tantrums, demanding independance, and continuous disobedience. But he's still cute and talking better than ever, so I guess we'll take it. We enjoyed the birthday celebrations, which lasted several weeks due to the timing and arrival of the multiple birthday packages from grandparents and great-grandparents.
The cars from Grandma Hawkins... Notice how they are perfectly lined up. That's his favorite thing to do with them.
He started to get excited every time another big box was delivered. He's going to be disappointed in the future when we start getting normal non-birthday packages again. One of the towels from Great-Grandma Boyd
The cake... Nemo of course
How many toddlers can you fit in a swimming pool?
Singing and blowing out the candles. As soon as the candles were out, Jackson stuck his finger right in the middle of the cake.

Yes, I made the cake. But I had a fish shaped pan so it wasn't terribly complicated :)

Happy Birthday Jackson! I too know the paid of the terrible two's. How can something be so frustrating and enjoyable at the same time?!
