When we ask Joshua how old he is, he tries to say "TWO!" while holding up five fingers. His big sister keeps telling him that she will be five at her next birthday so Joshua holds up five fingers too. Joshie is loving being two and the new responsibilities that it holds. He has started sleeping in his twin bed (and looks adorably precious doing so!) and he brings his plate/bowl/cup to the kitchen when he's done eating. He also is becoming more of a little helper, which I do appreciate! We sure are proud of our little man. :)
Jenni and I woke Joshua up on the morning of his birthday by saying, "Today is your birthday, Joshua! Happy Birthday!" Joshua responded by yelling, "PARTY!" Love my little man. No one loves celebrating birthdays more than Jenni J so she made sure to sing Happy Birthday to Joshua dozens of times while Joshua hummed along. My favorite question of the day from her was, "Mommy, now that Joshua is two, is he still going to be our Little Man?" I responded, "Joshie will always be our Little Man." :)
Eric worked on Joshua's birthday so the little ones and I went out for a birthday breakfast celebration, shopped around for party ideas and supplies, picked up a #2 candle, and came home to bake our little guy's chocolate birthday cake. We had a mini family celebration on his birthday and will have his party in February.
Happy Birthday, Joshua Gabriel! We love you!
