2 big!

Happy birthday to Justin! 2 years old just seems like full blown toddlerhood and I hardly ever see a trace of my little baby anymore. Justin is becoming very outgoing and independent and wants to do everything on his own. He says, "by self, Mommy" all day long. When he gets frustrated because he's not getting what he wants, he plops himself down on the ground to pout and won't move. Can you say, "terrible twos?" He also loves to copy everything we say. The other night he opened the bathroom door where Joseph was taking his bath and said, "Shuhshuf, 3 minutes OK?" He was giving Joseph his countdown like he hears me say. Joseph thought it was hilarious and it turned into quite a giggle-fest.He loved opening his presents. And he loves birthday cake. Everytime someone mentions the word birthday, he asks for cake. Smart boy.My attempt at a cute and crafty cake turned out pretty good, I have to say. It was fun to make.Love you, Justin! And thanks to all our family for the calls and the presents! We love you!

That is the most awesome cake! I am so proud of you. He looks so grown up, where did the baby go? They change too darn fast and he is just so adorable, we couldn't believe how he could talk on the phone.

Can it be true? Is Justin really two now?! I never realized how little of age difference there is between Caleb and Justin, just 10 months! What an adorable little boy, we can't wait to see him when we visit the West Seattle ward!
