Terribly Yet Terrifically TWO

Daniel turned two on April 20th, and while Mommy and Daddy had to leave that morning for Alaska while he was sleeping, you cannot imagine our excitement for our sweet baby to make it to big boy status!

In his 24th month, Daniel:
Weighed 28 pounds; in 50th percentile.
Wore size 24 month and 2T clothes.
Wore size 8 in shoes!
Got souvenirs from Hawaii!
Lined all of his toys up...
Played with his friend, Bekah, often.
Took naps while riding on Mom's back in the Beco.
Helped celebrate Mom and Daddy's 4th Anniversary...
Mostly, just ate their chocolate cake!

Spent time with family when Samuel had surgery.
Played with beans on rainy days.
Went to his first Easter egg hunt with Mimi.

Spent a LOT of time at Hobby Lobby...
   while Mommy planned his birthday party.
Had a Trucks, Trains, & Planes party!
Loved the tracks his parents spray-painted in the yard.
