Boy Blue Is Two (and other adventures)


To celebrate Boy Blue’s birthday, we went to the Happiest Place on Earth with some of our favourite little people (and their wonderful parents!)  I feel so spoiled to have such a fun resource so convinient, and that many of my friends and family members also have Disney passes.


It was a really special day for the little guy.  He’s such a happy guy so that’s pretty easy.  It was a special day for his big brother, too, who was chosen to be part of the Jedi Training Academy.

 Master Kai took an extra shine to him, and made sure he was well-prepared.  Good thing, too, because look who showed up!  Darth Vader and Darth Maul!

Little Red was the last in line of Padowans to defeat the Dark Side.  When he was done, the evil doers retreated.  If you ask him, it was because he showed his teeth and scared them off.  Boy Blue enjoyed watching his brother be a hero.

Our Birthday boy discovered that Autopia is most fun when you don’t actually steer but bounce around all over the place, and rode many other rides with all the zeal a two-year-old can muster.  We finished the evening at our favourite restaurant and both boys were asleep before we even gassed up and hit the freeway.  It’s amazing to recall the circumstances surrounded the birth of Boy Blue and to think it was two years ago.  We are so grateful of every day he has been in our lives, and so grateful he has such a brave big brother to protect him!

We are so blessed!

Today we went to the doctor, the little guy is 33 inches tall and 24 pounds.  And he decided he wasn’t wearing diapers today, so he’s wearing training pants.  He’s still hit and miss with using the bathroom, and really only likes to go potty so he can empty the toilet paper rolls into the toilet and/or flush the toilet repeatedly.  He’s independent and his brain is growing every day.  It always makes me cringe when people use the term “terrible twos” because I think it is such an exciting period of exploration and growth. 

Thank you, Boy Blue, for coming to our family and blessing our lives!

  1. I never liked “Terrible twos” either. I absolutely adore toddler time, the growth, the learning, the absolute wonder with the world around us. It’s such a blessing to be able to watch a child grow and be such a huge part of our lives. I’m close to two again myself and it feels so good to know that my daughter is growing into such a little princess. Sometimes an obstinate and stubborn princess, but at the same time, a sweet, curious little princess! Toddlers are amazing people. I sometimes wish, beyond the tantrums that is, that she’d stay the way she is. But then, I’d never get to see her grow up and see what a lovely woman she will become. Logan’s grown so fast…it’s nice to relive it again through Olivia!

    Happy birthday (very late I’m afraid…but I’ve never been all that punctual when it comes to these things) Boy Blue! Looks like you couldn’t have asked for a better second birthday! 🙂
