He’s TWO!!!

July 4, 2011

We had a great family birthday party last weekend.  Holden’s favorite part was his Thomas the Train cake.  It was awesome.  I’ll have to post pics of it so you can see just how cool it was – it was made by Poppy Locks.  Not only did it look cool, it was super tasty. I’m pretty sure his favorite gift was his Thomas the Train ride on toy. It only goes 2 miles an hour, but that’s just fine with him.  He’ll circle the train in the house, stop to wave “hi” and continue on his way. ;)  Super cute. Holden had his two year doctor’s appointment on Friday and he seemed excited at first.  The whole time we were waiting on the doctor, he kept saying “It’s okay. Don’t worry.” LOL  I felt sooo bad for him.  He did pretty well, cried a bit, but the real tears came when he had his shots. That deep hurt cry that makes you cry as well – yep, I cried. :(  It was awful.  When the doctor asked if he was putting two words together, Holden said, “Can I get a sucker now?”  The doctor started laughing and said, “Yep, no problem with speech there.” :)  He was in the 50th percentile for weight.  I thought he would be because he’s slimmed down so much since he started walking, running, jumping, hopping, etc. LOL  He’s in the 90th percentile for height.  Tall dude.

On the way home from the doctor, we had a conversation I won’t forget: ;)

Me: “Did you get a shot?”

Holden: “Yes, I did!”

Me: “Did it hurt?”

Holden: “Yes!!”

Me: “That wasn’t nice, was it?”

Holden: “No. It’s Mommy’s fault.” :(

Yep, that’ll break your heart.  Oh well, I’ve been told that never changes . . . . especially when they’re teenagers.  Guess my heart needs to get tougher.

Here’s our 2 year old big boy:
