Happy 2nd Birthday Gage!

Happy Birthday my dear Gage! I can't believe it has been 2 years since we were at the hospital waiting for your arrival. Time sure is flying by and way too fast :-(    Gage you have brought so much joy to us this year. You are definitely head strong which is a good thing. You are tough as nails and not afraid to show it no matter how big the task or the other person is. You think you are the same age as your brother and want to do everything he does. Bacon, chicken, any sauce, gravy biscuits, chicken biscuits, APPLES!, oranges and almonds are all of your favorite things. You are not afraid to try knew things but are quick to tell us you don't like something. You keep us laughing always and we struggle with it while we are getting on to you for something you did. You are still not fond of going to the nursery or toddler area at church but we are working on it. Your brother wasn't a fan either but I truly think that is because you stay at home instead of being at daycare. That is perfectly fine... we just get to spend more time with you during church :-)

As tradition, he got to wake up to balloons everywhere. He was tickled and immediately started putting them in his bed to keep. He was too funny and in the best mood!!

Love his bed head :-)
Please excuse his Christmas PJ's but uhmm it is cold in March and this was the first thing his Daddy grabbed after his bath last night. ha!

For his birthday, we went to eat at El Paso so Gage can eat his "chips". Which truly he mostly eats the cheese dip by the spoon full. He ends up with cheese dip all over his shirt, table and some on the person who sits next to him but he is happy!
I loved his reaction when he saw his cake. He looked at it and with the biggest smile and brightest eyes said "WOW!!!! Thomas!!"
Many attempts at a family picture and this was the best we could get. I have learned to go with it and realize that two boys are not going to be still for pictures at all. ha!

See... him and his cheese dip :-)

He got embarrassed when we starting to sing to him. I love how tight he clings to his Daddy. Matt is truly his hero. God couldn't have blessed us with a better daddy and husband.

Hunter was such a good big brother and helped Gage blow out his candles...

Sweet sweet boy who has a big heart. He was so wonderful about Gage's bday. This is all new to me and to Hunter. I was nervous that he would get jealous and act out. He proved me wrong. Ahead of time we explained everything to him and he was perfect. He even helped Gage open presents and made things exciting for him. Thank you Hunter!!
You are also a lover of trains, trucks and cars right now Gage. You could sit for minutes (ha!) and play and play. You have now started to talk to some and engage in the activity. I love watching your imagination explode!

You even got to drive the Gator for the first time. Your poor brother used to drive you around all the time but he is getting too big for it and his long legs just don't fit anymore. It breaks my heart but I am so happy for you to get to drive it yourself.
