The BIG 2!!!

How old are you, Madden?--This many???

I'm 2!!!!!
Don't judge, I had to use the flash. But these two pics are perfect! Today, my sweet baby boy turned two. get technical, it is 8:28 pm right now, and he wasn't born until 11:28pm, May 9, 2010 (Mother's Day), after 25 hours of labor!!! I can still remember pretty much every part of that day. Those 25 hours were totally worth it, and the best mother's day present ever!

We celebrated his birthday last Saturday, with a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!

 I made his cake- a Cars theme--his favorite! It took me 3 days, but I was so happy with how it came out! 
  We went to the Dr. today for Madden's 2 year check-up. He had to get 1 shot but he did great! 
Weight: 29lbs (50th-75th%)
Height: 35 1/2 in. (90th-95th%)
Head: 49cm

We transitioned to a big boy bed about a month ago. He did awesome! My mom claims that he is not normal, because he stays in his bed and waits for us to come get him! He never tried to climb out of his crib, so I didn't know what he would do when we switched, but he has been an angel! 
We are also paci-free! (for about a week, now) This, also, was a pretty easy transition. He only used it at nap and bedtime, so I wasn't really planning on taking it at the moment, however, I went to give him a paci one night and saw that it had bite marks on it! He had almost bit it in half!!! So I offered him a different one. He didn't want it, so I said, "ok, no more paci!". He cried for maybe a minute, then fell asleep! Thus, bye-bye to the paci! 
Such a big boy now!
He LoVeS to play outside! 
He is a pro at using the IPAD! My mom has all sorts of learning games on it for him!
He Loves to eat beans! Any kind! 
He loves Reese (and all her toys)!
His laugh is infectious! 
His smile will melt your heart!
I am so blessed that God chose me to be his mommy! I pray that Matthew and I lead him and teach him to be the man God has made him to be. That we will be the example of love, commitment, and respect for him. And that he will know and have an intense relationship with the Lord! 

He is my sweet, adorable, crazy, hilarious, energetic, wonderful little boy...and he's TWO!!! Happy birthday Madden Valentine! I LOVE YOU!
