I can't believe it. Our precious little Ty is now two years old. I always remember on my birthday my Mom would reminisce about the night I was born. And as much as I always loved the stories, I completely get it now. I can't help but think what life was like one year ago and then two years ago. And more than anything, as I reminisce, a big smile comes across my face.
This little man has been such a joy to our lives that I can look back and love every moment of it. Even the hard moments...because even when Ty is in his Terrible-Two-Mood and yelling out "No Mama, Don't Want That!!", I know that in just a matter of moments he will come up and ask for a kiss & hug ...and just completely melt my heart.
And so we celebrated the birthday with a couple of small parties where we could all just hang out and have a good time. And surprisingly, the camera didn't seem to come out much for the first one. (Must have been that beer in my hand that got in the way!) But either way, we had a great time and Ty absolutely LOVED all the attention, presents, cake, and homemade ice cream!
One of my favorite things to do is ask Tyson to give Mama a Dirty Look. I am sure I will hate that talent when he is a teenager, but for now it just cracks me up. And I must say that these mad and pouty faces when the birthday hat and ribbon scream nothing but, "It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want To." Or perhaps...."I Am TWO!!"
