^^^i mean, of course i HAD to sneak in during his nap, i had no choice^^^

^^^in all his toddler glory^^^
^^^nothing like watching your husband throw your toddler in the air, amiright?^^^
honestly, one of my favorite days. we really kept things simple: collected things with mickey mouse or stars (his two favorite things) took the kids to the jump zone where they had the time of their lives, met granny and gramps neville at mcdonalds, made it home just in time to sing to him and eat cake and ice cream. we put him in his new jammies and he just looked so grown up and we all got a little sentimental about this little man of ours.
while we ate cupcakes and ice cream before bedtime, we all shared some things we love about boston.
-he makes us happy, especially watching him learn and playing with him (a)
-he was the perfect addition to our family, and balances us in so many ways. (a)
-he has cute, big eyes (h)
-he knows a lot of things (h)
-his smile makes us smile (m)
-he has his own way of loving each member of our family differently. (m)
after we begrudgingly put the kids to bed (it was such a fun day, no one wanted it to end) mark and i got comfy together in the easy chair and scrolled through photos of boston since he was born on my phone. looking at those and talking about his life, i was honestly just like, how did we get so lucky to have him?? my goal is to remember that feeling, especially on those tough two-year-old days, youknowwhati'msayin? :) we just couldn't be happier about having that boy in our fam. ♥
birthday boy in the morning and waiting for him to wake up from his nap was borderline torture for halliegirl.
why do kids like mcdonalds so much?? as soon as we pulled in the parking lot boston was smiling ear to ear.
love this family of mine so much.
our giant toddler wearing 4t pjs on his 2nd birthday. whaaaat.
