Happy 2nd Birthday to the Pookie!

Today, my baby boy turned 2! TWO! I can't even believe it!

He's not a baby anymore. He's even starting to move beyond being a toddler. And he is completely amazing.

He loves cars (go-goes) and trains and his sister. He playing pretend, racing and, well, whatever his sister comes up with. He gets so excited when Daddy or Mommy come into the room that it warms our hearts. He's great at so many things and learning so quickly. Just today, he was able to tell me the color of the car he was holding was "boo" (although he also said the red one was blue, so colors are a work in progress).

He's able to do so much physically, running and jumping and climbing up and down everything. He is putting together whole sentences! His pronounciation is getting more clear, and he generally is able to get across what he means. And he tells us "ah woh oo" all the time, even when we don't say I love you first!

It seems like just yesterday he was a babe in my arms. And now, he's a little boy.

Happy Birthday, Pookie! Thanks for being such a wonderful part of our family of four.

An aside: My babies are growing up so quickly! In fact, I don't have babies anymore! Two years since my youngest was born? Do you know what this is doing to my ovaries?!? My mom heard a term that describes it perfectly: womb wistfulness. I never thought I would actually miss the newborn/infant/baby stage, but there you have it.

Wow, I can't believe he is 2 already!! Weren't we just in Florida, for our girls getaway, and you were pregnant?! That seems like just yesterday.

Happy Birthday to Pookie!! I hope you all had a wonderful day of celebration.

Two years! Amazing. Happy Birthday Pookie. :)

Dare I say it? Try for a third. All the cool parents are doing it.

If you are missing the baby stage, I will be happy to send you Glinda. She likes attention every so often at night, so you will get lots of time with her. She is also teething, so she has a little sniffle, which is amusing to wipe. Just say the word, and she is yours for a night! ;-)

"Womb Wistfulness" - spot on! My friend and mama of 2 informed me today she's expecting #3 on Xmas eve, so I know the feeling, even though i KNOW I'm all done!

@Bisbink - I know! It does seem like just yesterday!

@mom2boy - Thanks!

@SarcastiCarrie - I'm totally game! Londo, however...

@MommyEm - You know I would take her! Just has to be after the knee surgery.

@hush - When I held my friend's baby a few weeks ago, I told Londo that my ovaries hurt! And my sister is pregnant, which really brings it on!

SarcastiCarrie said...

I think you can convince Londo of your righteousness. A little wine, a little kids with the grandparents, some romance, (a little take two fertility drugs and call me in the morning (ha ha ha)).

Happy Birthday Pookie!

(and ps: I'm glad it's your womb that's wistful and not mine - mine just slammed its doors shut in defiance and gave me a stern "oh no you don't" when I had a twinge of wonder at reading your post!)

Happy (belated) birthday, Pookie!

I think my ovaries are with Melba's. No way I want to be pregnant again!
