Parker is 2!!!

Parker is turning 2 this Saturday, but because of General Conference, we had his friend birthday party this past Saturday. It was a sports themed party, obviously. He had 8 friends over, so it got a little crazy, but we had fun.

This is what Parker has been up to lately:
  • He sings his ABC and recognizes at least 8 letters (E, R, B, H, I, S, O, A).
  • He can count to ten
  • He has been going potty an average of 1 time a day
  • He is loving and gives kisses and hugs freely
  • He all of a sudden loves taking baths. He wants multiple ones a day.
  • He loves, loves, loves to sing. His favorites are the Alphabet Song, Twinkle Twinkle (which he gets confused between the two songs), Once there was a snowman, and Old McDonald.
  • He loves watching movies - I wish he didn't. His new favorite is Bolt.
  • He loves stuffed animals. He sleeps with like 6 every night.
  • He is starting to get pretty picky about what he eats
  • He laughs LOUDLY especially at church during sacrament meeting
  • I can't understand about 80% of what he is saying
For his party, I made a pinata shaped like a baseball. It took way too many hours, and my amazing husband helped me decorate it without even complaining.
  • Parker is excited about his baseball pinata

    Can't have too many pictures of the pinata, can we?

    The kids playing with the new toys. Gosh, I still need to paint my front door.

    Parker was really happy about the cupcakes.

    He chose a basketball

    I love my (not so) little guy!

I can't believe you made your own pinata!! Holy cow that is so cool. Great idea, maybe you should do a how-to tutorial. I can't believe how blonde Parker is. He is so cute. Happy birthday little boy!
