two years old...

It hardly seems possible that a year ago we George was one... and we were in LA with all our friends from near and far.  George was just getting introduced to the concept of sweet tasting food and literally dove in head first.  Just in case you needed a reminder on how cute he was at one:

This year we tried to make it a very special day for George.  The whole day we told him it was his birthday.  We took him out to lunch downtown at one of his favorite spots, the Naked Noodle.  He had spaghetti and meatballs and wolfed the entire bowl down in about ten minutes.

The afternoon festivities started off with a balloon surprise.  I bought two and rode home with them, but only one made it.  Good thing I got two. I didn't even notice that I had lost one.


George didn't seem to mind.


Ashley made a beautiful, adorable cake just like last year.  George LOVES planes.  He keeps calling this the "cake plane."

George was much more composed than his father at the age of two.  Thank you Polaroid:

Look at George... cool as a friggin cucumber.  "Oh, what's these... candles, I know how to handle this situation."

Candles. Out.  One second and they were gone.  We've got the video to prove it (see below).  My heart swells with pride... the good kind. 

After that George began eating his cake in a very civilized manner.  Not like a year ago when he was eating like the... portly gentleman from the pie eating contest in the movie Stand By Me.

Here's George and his buddy Jackson digging in.  The cake was a big success.  We were very happy to spend George's birthday with our neighbors and friends the Barnwells.  We are lucky to have them as neighbors.

Here's a video montage of some of the days events...


Thanks to everyone for the presents and birthday wishes.  We live a very blessed life.

He is a pro! I hope that was the wind blowing in the background and NOT the camera woman being a total mouth breather...
