Two’ll do.

Jasper’s first cake of the day.

Jasper’s third cake of the day:

Jasper has spent the past year celebrating birthdays both fictional and real. Almost every day he has managed to find some candle-like object to stick in a cake-like object and we have spent the past 365 days listening to his rendition of “Happy Birthday” evolve.  He watches this video at least four times per week and every triangle is a “BIRFDAY HAT!”

So, when we started telling him that his actual birthday was coming up, he was like “FINALLY. I have been waiting half my life for this!”

We were going to have a party for him but we got invited to two other two year old birthdays in the same weekend. Fortunately he is at an age where we can bank on him thinking we threw him two parties instead of none.

Here is a little  point form synopsis of Jasper at the age of two:

-Experiences immense joy while eating just about anything. (When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said, “I want chocolate food!”)

-Loves books and has most of his favorites memorized. Now he has started asking what everything means which is cute but does nothing for the flow of story time.

-Has perfected his infectious belly-chuckle. Has also perfected his belly.

-Has a nightly ritual of blasting off, usually while naked. He bends over at the waist and sticks his arms behind him and yells at everyone who is the room to count down. If you don’t count, he will scream toddler obscenities at you.

-Is very talented when it comes to seeking out and pressing his older brother’s many buttons.

-Enjoys a robust dance party and knows how to work a room.

Happy Birthday, Jaspy! You’ve come a long way, Baby.

      He got the hang of “presents” fairly quickly and yes, they all rocked his world. Even the socks and pjs.
