Eli turned 2! Last week, in fact. Judging by the fact that I'm posting about it a week late, you can guess (correctly) that it wasn't exactly a huge deal. He got an awesome car track from his grandparents when he stayed at their house.
The day he got home (not his birthday) I had his presents from us and his other grandparents on the table, and he and Caroline immediately set to opening them.
We figured what the heck, so he got his birthday presents on Sunday. He thoroughly enjoyed wearing the curly ribbons at earring, I even accidentally put him to bed with them on!
His actual birthday was Wednesday and Joe didn't get home until 6:00 or so, I had mutual at 7:00 and had to get dinner and a birthday cake whipped up, so we scarfed dinner, sung Happy Birthday in fast-forward chipmunk voices, and wolfed down cake before BAM, I was out the door. So I was glad we opened presents another night when things were slower.
Anyway, now he's finally two (which it seems he has been for quite a few months now, it really fakes us out quite a few times and we thought he was turning THREE), fully potty trained during the day, and we're living the high life with how much he talks and entertains us. Love ya, kiddo!
