happy birthday joshua

Today Joshua went to his doctor for his two year check up. He is 33 1/2 inches tall and 28.8 pounds. And the doctor said he is sized as an average two year old (though I know he is above average :) ) He didn't have to get any shots today because he is current on everything. WhooHoo....but I had been all planned for shots. He is the only two year old I have heard of that didn't have to have shots. (Kudos to me for keeping him up to date).

On Monday evening before my birthday dinner, we took him outside with his new t-ball set he got from Nana & Gampop. Here are some pictures...

He was actually more interested in having possession of all the balls he could hold.

After his bath tonight, I again told him how much I loved him. And I held him like I used to when he was just a colicky baby. My baby is 2. Since his first birthday he has changed so much. He has started walking, going his tubes, his speech has taken off, he sings several songs, he climbs and jumps on anything and everything. He loves animals of any sort...even the ants on the sidewalk outside. He gets down there and says "hi ant" every time he sees one crawling by. And in typical boy fashion, he loves balls, trucks and anything else that moves. I am thankful that he is generally healthy, that he eats good and that he is mine. My life has changed a lot in the last three years...a lot in the last five years for that matter. I can't imagine my life without Joshua. What would I do with my time?
