The Boy turns 2

Vin recently turned 2, and we celebrated by throwing a big playdate at my mom's house. Cousins and playmates came over for food, and ridiculous giggling, and of course, CAKE! Steven tried to teach Vin to respond to the question "How old are you?" with not very successful results.

Me: "How old are you?"

Vin: "Cake!"

Me: "It's your birthday. That means there's going to be party!

Vin: "CAKE!"

Well, so the boy seems to think he's "cake" years old. Oh well.


I spent 3 hours trying to figure out how to fit a Thomas train set into a 2ft x 4ft space in time for the party. The result was a team of toddlers that decided to get all Godzilla on the Island of Sodor. Note to self: Velcroing down the track is a deterrent, but not a solution.


While the concept of turning 2 was lost on him, Vin did correctly learn the word "presents." This one's from Daddy, and as you can see, Shelby, the expert gift opener, is helping him. After all, she has been opening gifts for six years now, somehow managing to completely destroy the packaging, but never the gift itself. Some of you might recall her exploits with Mister Duck. I'm happy to report she's putting her gift opening powers to better use now.


And afterwards, we all had...CAKE!
