He's a pretty big deal around here.



 Two year's ago today I gave birth to one of the world's orneriest children.
I love the kid... but he's a monster.

A monster that can give me a headache, make me want to scream, belly laugh and kiss him all at the same time... it's weird, but I totally get him.


Ryder is 2 today!


And in honor of the anniversary of his entrance into the world,
we had a birthday shindig.

And because for the past two weeks he has been wondering about the house yelling "Toodles, where are you?
We had a Mickey Mouse shindig.


Our bitty house was filled to the brim with family. 
We laughed, ate an amazing cake, and opened an assortment of Disney themed presents.


I cannot believe my youngest baby is two. In some ways it was a blurry blink... in others, it was a LOOOOOONG hard trudge.
Ryder is a curious mix of sheer delight and a hot mess.


 I love him so much it hurts a little.


These boys make all the hard just a little bit easier.


   Happy Birthday my sweet, sweet boy!!!

What a fun day of celebrating. Isn't it just the best to have boys to drive you a little crazy and make you melt all at the same time? I love being a mom to two all boy boys.
