Our sweet Boo has turned 2! Memphis, you have grown up so much this past year, I feel like my baby is no longer a baby.
Memphis, you are so loved. You melt our hearts with your cute personality and loving nature. You currently love stuffed animals (you have Peanut, Bear (your lamb), Owl, Foxy, and now BB-8 and Nemo in your crib) and still love your bamboo-muslin blankets. You love treats, eating, playing with your siblings and daddy, and being with mom (you have a special place for mom). Your favorite books are "Nibbles", "Go Dogs Go", and "All Better". You love trains, cars, and your new roller coaster that you got for your birthday. You are now talking in sentences and are very independent. You can often be found in the cupboard eating all the applesauce pouches that you opened yourself, or on the counter getting whatever it is you want. You are one cute little man. Our lives are so much better with you in it.
We started off our day of celebration by all going to Build-A-Bear (per Jada's request and idea). It ended up being perfect. The kids all loved picking out their own stuff animal, and enjoyed helping stuff them. Jada picked out a big Twilight Sparkle, Tucker got the red dragon from How to Train Your Dragon, and Memphis picked Nemo.
After a fun morning at Build-A-Bear, we headed home for naps. While Memphis took an epic long nap, Lindsey and Kenny joined us. While I baked and decorated the cake, and we waited for Memphis to wake up, Kenny helped Jada and Tucker make an awesome box house out of the big roller coaster box. They were pretty impressed.
When he finally woke up, we sang "Happy Birthday", blew out candles, and enjoyed some cake. When I asked Memphis earlier this week what kind of cake he wanted, he requested a bear cake. But on the day before his birthday, while looking at photos and trying to decide on a design, I found a cute bear cake and asked Memphis if that was the cake he wanted. He looked at it, thought, then said, "Yes", but after looking at the photo for a few more second he said, "actually . . . owl!" It was the cutest thing ever. Never has he used the word actually in his life:) It was the best. So, of course I obliged and made him an owl cake, and he loved it.
Following the birthday cake fun, we took a few "2 year old Birthday Photos" then headed to dinner at Blue Moon pizza.

After dinner, Lindsey and Kenny had to go home to take care of Eames, so we parted ways. We headed home and finally had time to opened presents. Memphis really loved all of his gifts, especially his roller coaster, raccoon jammies, and "Nibbles" book.
I'm so glad you are mine Memphis. Never grow up
