Happy Half-Birthday, Adam!


It's official. I. have. a. 2.5. year. OLD! WHAT? How did this time go by so fast? Seriously, have I been so naive to think that my little baby wasn't going to grow up? He's going to be 18 before I know it, isn't he? I think he thinks he's almost 18 already. He and I have the craziest conversations. Last night we had a discussion over why everyone poops. Oh yes, that's what I said. The child is obsessed with things that poop. So, we had to have a discussion about the fact that every living thing poops. sigh.

He also has taken on the boy characteristics of "fighting" and dueling it out with daddy... using forks.

Oh yes, and I've created a monster in the kitchen. If I don't let him pull up a chair and do something; all hell breaks loose.

He likes to take off all of his clothes, run through the house, and yell "Stinky butt is coming!!!"

He enjoys money and thinks that pennies can buy anything- even ipods. Yes, he asked me for an ipod yesterday... and EVEN called it by the right name.

My baby...my big boy.... he's growing up. I am so proud of him. He is my sunshine, when skies are grey.

I'm going to go hyperventilate now, at the thought of having a 2.5 year old...

HAPPY HALF-BIRTHDAY, ADAM!

Ok, that "stinky butt is coming" thing really cracks me up. He's not a baby anymore . . .so you need to have another one, right?!

What a cute little munchkin. Those cheeks.....oh so cute.

Happy Half B'day to him.

BTW...you keep it real which is why I love ya. Kathrine wants to meet in Chicago sometime. Maybe this summer. I could not imagine the trouble we would get into but I'm game.

And about the ring of fire.....good luck with that babe. Sometimes I get a flare up, but not a lot. Preperation H is my friend. I'm sure all the other friends here are raising their eyebrows to this comment. LOL!

Now calm down, Mommee, it's just life happening. Unfortunately, it seems to happen at the speed of light sometimes!

And pennies CAN buy iPods, you'd just have to have a whole heck of a lot of them! : )

I was looking at pics this weekend and thought to myself - when did my manchild get so big? Just how did that happen?

Stinky butt is coming, hahaha! We have lots of discussions about poop too. Isn't that lovely. My "baby" will be 2.5 in another couple weeks, so I know just how you feel!
