2 Years Old

It seems so crazy for me to write this blog post, my baby is 2!  Cullen is such a great little boy, just think 2 years ago he was this tiny.

Born at 1:57pm after over 17 hours of labor this little bundle was placed in my arms.  He has brought so much joy to our family.  Cullen always knows when mama or dada (or caleb) need a hug or kiss,   he's such a cuddle bug and gives the tightest, bigest hugs a 2 year old could give.  He's a constant everyday friend for Caleb and has really made our lives complete.  I don't know if we'll be going through the baby stage again but even as a baby he was great.  Sure I didn't sleep for over 15 months, but those nights laying awake with him I'll never regret or be sad about.

Last year when he turned 1 I thought, wow this kid is the cutest most adorable baby ever, how did I get so lucky.

With his bright blue eyes, his little baby curls and his perfect porcelian skin.  Now he's 2, he's growing and learning new things every day.  I'm so proud of my little boy.  He has so many words, he loves to dance.  He loves dressing up and picking out his shoes every morning.  He loves jumping and playing with his brother, and he loves to cuddle up and watch a *short* movie or read books with the family.  He tries to play hungry hungry hippos and its quite funny but sometimes he wins.  He'll pretty much want to play with whatever his big brother plays with, and loves to build pillow forts with his daddy.  He is full of expressions, pouts, sad faces, then he'll look up and smile cause he was just pretending.  He'll run toward us to give us a big hug, then run back to do whatever he was doing.  He loves art, coloring with crayons and markers, paint, stickers.   He loves food too.  His favorite meat is probably pork, but he loves steak, chicken (as long as its not fried), salmon, ham.  He's not so much into hotdogs, pizza, or mac&cheese, but he does love french fries.  He likes candy (but what kid doesn't) but also likes wheat crackers and goldfish, and of course cookies and cake and icecream.

I'm proud to say that he's been potty trained for a couple weeks.  I would have never guessed that my little boy would be in undies at 23 months but he was.  He's such a smart boy, he helps out around the house with garbage night, and laundry, and cleaning up his toys.  He loves his aunts, uncles and grandparents, and cousin's too.  He loves swimming, and swinging, and being outside as much as possible.  And he's pretty good at getting his pictures taken.

Here are his 'official' 2 year pictures.  He loved his suspenders and tie so much he didn't want to take them off at bedtime!

When asked how old he was gonna be, he responded like this.  Afterall holding up 2 fingers on one hand is a little difficult!

Well if you made it this far, thank you for reading.  I'm so proud of my little guy and I love him so much. 

happy birthday Cullen!
