Little Birthday Boy


William is TWO!!! I simply can't believe it. Time is passing by so quickly. Being Will's parents has been the most incredible experience we could have ever asked for.. To see him grow from just being able to eat and sleep to saying full sentences has been an adventure. (Just now he came up to me and said "Amy, go play race cars?" And, yes, he calls me Amy about 90% of the time. This is to the dismay of his mother and the joy of everyone else, apparently). We had a "little" family birthday party for him on Saturday. Considering the size of Dallas' family (and mine), family birthday parties are never small. We were so blessed to have so much family come from hours away (the majority were at least 2 hours away) just to celebrate our little guy's day with us. Our favorite moments include:
-Jenn, Brad and the kids surprising us! We didn't think they could come, and we were so happy to have James there. James is Will's favorite little buddy. From the moment Will saw James he just started giggling, and he didn't stop until they left.
-Will opening his first present from Uncle James and Aunt Kaydee. It was a pack of race cars and Will that it was the coolest thing ever... until he opened his big black motorcycle from Uncle Jake and Aunt Misty. (Thank you to everyone for the presents! He is such a spoiled boy).
-Will refusing to eat any of his cake AGAIN this year. Next year he's getting a Pepsi with a candle in it.
-Will saying everyone's names. He even said "TeAnna" after James and Kaydee left.
-Will's new bike. I ran over his red trike by accident a few months ago (this is the trike Grandma Kristie gave him for his 1st birthday). She obliged and got him the same one again this year. He loves it as much as ever.
Thank you again to everyone who made the effort to be with us. To those who couldn't come, we sure missed you!
We love you William. Happy Birthday little man.

This seems like just yesterday...

It is amazing how fast our children grow up. Will is just adorable and I'm glad you had such a fun birthday for him. Just wait until you are my age and you have a child turn 24. The day they were born still seems just a few days ago.

Happy B-Day little buddy!
He is such a handsome little guy.
Stoked to hear that you would dance anywhere for free.
You guys need to come to our "Sock Hop" fundraiser we are having for Stoked on Socks. It's Oct. 18th from 6-9pm, but the location is not for sure yet. I'll let you know. My point is...the DJ is booked and there will be dancing.
