Happy Birthday, Caden!!!

I can't believe Caden is already two years old! The first two have been great, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for our little guy.

He started his birthday morning with breakfast of his choice: pancakes. And not only any run of the mill pancakes...Mickey Mouse and friends pancakes. Yum!


I think he enjoys the syrup more than the pancakes themselves!

After breakfast we had a morning of playing with his kitchen. Mommy even popped some popcorn for him so he could put it in his microwave and pretend to pop it. He thought that was pretty cool. Speaking of his kitchen, I don't know if I mentioned this before, but there was a knob missing from the box. We also received an extra holder for another phone. I called Step 2 today and they were awesome. They were very apologetic and said they would get the knob out to be today and we should have it within about 5 days. She also said that since we had the extra holder for the phone they would send me an extra phone. Now anyone who knows Caden knows that an extra phone is a HUGE bonus. He will be in heaven. The woman said that then if he had a friend over they could talk. Isn't that nice?

Grandma came over to see Caden and give him a present to open for his birthday. He got the rest of his haul yesterday at his party. It was a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse book:

 


He really loves books now.

He then took a quick break to listen to some music with his new CD player:


Grandma then took Caden, picked up Bumpah, and went to lunch with little guy. He was a king on his birthday...or would he be a prince?

Lilli and I hung out at the house while Caden was out and we had a dance party. Here she is showing off her moves.


She starting "talking" today. Her coos had more substance to them. She will be reciting Shakespeare any day now.

When Caden got home we bowled for awhile. I bought him a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse bowling set. He has fun knocking down the pins.

Dinner was West End Pizza. I LOVE their pizza, but that isn't the reason we went there. The small arcade is the reason. I know I mentioned this before, but if you want to entertain your toddler for hours, given him a dime and an arcade game. He would put the dime into the machine and pretend to play the game. When he got board he grabbed the dime out of the coin return and moved on. Aunt Alexis even really put money into the driving game for him. Here he is playing:

 

He was more interested in the button that lit up than the actual game. Although if you check out the one shot, the car is on the road! Pretty impressive.

When we got home we had cake again. Caden loved it when we sang to him. Check out the face:


He even tried to blow out his candles.


Mommy and Daddy gave him one more present to open. A book to read at bedtime.



Caden started reading it right away.


Night!
