Our baby is TWO!

I cannot believe Wesley is two. Our baby boy. Is a toddler. For real now. There is something about a kid turning two that is heavy/scary for me. 1. They aren't officially a baby anymore  2. They become terrible ;) I wouldn't say he turned terrible on his second birthday. He was already exhibiting signs:) Hahaha. In all seriousness though, he is a wonderful little guy. When I am home with the kids, he is a sweet loving funny little boy( i say when I'm home with the kids because he is a toughie when we go out sometimes! He loves to torture Ammon in the car....;)  I can always count on him to come give me kisses and big squeezy hugs. If I ask him to come to me for a diaper change or for any reason and he doesn't come, all I have to do is fake cry(I'm mean) and he will come right over and hug me and do whatever I ask. He loves me and has a soft wittle heart. He tries to do things to make us laugh. He has recently started to make the most hilarious scrunchy nosed face when you get out a camera or ask him to smile. He loves to look at books. He ADORES cars. He is constantly rolling a car or truck or train(anything that has wheels) all over our floors, couches, walls, peoples backs, etc. It is SO CUTE. Ammon loved characters/ "cool guys" and still does. He was never that fascinated by cars. But Wesley, he is our car boy! Sometimes I'll just be sitting on the couch and all of the sudden I'll feel a car rolling on my head then onto my back. It kinda tickles and feels good actually :) He still isn't saying much but totally comprehends every word. I can ask him to go get me something and he'll bring exactly what I've asked for. And recently he did add a new word to his vocab, "Hewo!"(for hello:) Cali taught him that one and it sounds so cute. Oh and one more thing about this boy: he is busy. Busy busy busy. He gets into lots of things. He has taken a crayon and marker to couches, walls, leather chairs, and doors...he tries to stand and balance on things he shouldn't(kinda like his daddy. . .). Hence the bruises he gets weekly. Anyways, we love this cute, curly blonde, daredevil, car loving kiddo! Our family sure wouldn't be the same without him. We love you cutie patootie and hope you loved your 2nd birthday as much as we loved celebrating it with you!!

Enjoy pics of our family party! We had Pizza Hut and a hot wheels cake I made and decorated. It turned out not too shabby.

One of the pizzas was one of those wacky ones with cheese sticks for the crust. Ammon thought his piece looked like a claw from a dinosaur. I think he was right.

The cakity cake.

 Wesley was so excited to have a new hot wheels cup to drink out of...

I LOVE these pics of him when he first saw the cake. 

 I think he liked it :)

He was HILARIOUS during the birthday song. As we were singing he kept blowing the candles out over and over! Joey kept having to relight them.We were all laughing so hard. We'll never forget that. Silly kid.

Not sure what this face is all about but it makes me laugh...

After we were done singing, Wesley stole a cookie off the side of the cake. Heck, it was his birthday. We let him go for it.

I bought these silly had fun with them.

Present time! Most of these pics are of him opening gifts from his sisters. They are so good to their little bros. I love this picture below because as soon as he opened his car from Ella he was racing it down the birthday gift bag :)

 A ball the perfect size for Wesley(from Aub)

 Testing it out...

 Big boy in the present opening chair :)

Looking at his card from Cali. She also gave him gummies and made him a perler bead dog(those are a lot of work! She was so excited to give it to him!)

Joey and I got him a racetrack for his hot wheels and a pirate ship tent to play in. They have been having a blast in there. I've climbed my huge self into there too..for fun..

Joey spent the evening playing cars with his boys. Makes me so happy he has his boys now :)
Snuggles with my baby, er, I mean big boy...
