Coop is 2!

My baby boy is 2. He is very 2. He is RED HEADED and 2. I refuse to use any words like terrible to describe him, but let's just say- he's 2... He is very active and strong willed. He is such a ham and loves to be the center of attention. He is refuses to eat any meat except bacon. He hits his sister and she gives him the reaction of his dream every time. He loves cars and trains. He lives to play ball and can throw better than his sister (don't tell her I said that). He's been fighting a lot of illness lately, including a bout with pneumonia. He is constantly snotty, but it the best little nose blower you've ever seen! We love him so much and he adds so much life and energy to our family.

We decided that we were going to take it easy for his birthday this year. I was so glad! Somewhere I heard about a family that did friend birthday parties every other year and filled in the off years with family birthdays. Birthdays can turn into such productions that we have decided we want to take it down a notch and make it really just about that person.

We started the day with Cooper's favorite- "sugar donuts."
Cars cake- Coop is obsessed with them!

As soon as Cooper saw it, he was ready to dive in! He was not happy when I moved it to the kitchen counter. This was his reaction. Notice his pajamas and boots...
We went to try out the local Peter Piper Pizza for dinner.

When we got home, he was ready for cake! This was his face when we started singing happy birthday.
Then all of a sudden it was not so funny anymore!

I tried out the check board pan I got when we got married and was still in the wrapper... success!

His tent was a hit!
We had such a great time celebrating our Little Man. He is a constant joy!
