Jace is TWO! Our birthday celebrations started yesterday with a play date at the park. Jace was very excited to help me with the cupcakes. And to help himself to a cupcake! He likes to eat the chocolate chips off the cupcakes, lick the frosting off the top, then give the rest to me. I like the cake part best, so I guess it works out….?
The play date was fun. Lots of Jace’s friends showed up, but I didn’t get any great pictures. It’s pretty hard to corral 10 toddlers at the playground! In the picture below, all the kids at both benches were part of the “party”. Everyone sang Happy Birthday to Jace (much to his dismay), then the kids all ate a ton of cupcakes!
We discovered that riding a bike is much easier if you DON’T have a cupcake in each hand. However, Jace wasn’t willing to put the cupcakes down, so the bike pretty much became a mom-and-dad-propelled-device. Oh well. We’ll try again tomorrow! Jace was very happy sticking bows on his nose. I’m not sure why he thinks that’s what you do with bows, but he likes to stick them to his nose, then fake sneeze until they go flying off. Then he laaaaughs. It’s cute. Strange, but cute!
Jace did a great job with the candles. Multiple times. It took some convincing to get him to eat the cake instead of just blow out the relit candles over and over! All-in-all, I think he had a great birthday. I can’t believe he’s two! HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY, JACE!
