My "baby" (my sister gets mad that I still call him that, because he's a big boy) is TWO today! He is so so so excited. He's been talking about his birthday for 2 weeks, and he wants a Dora Balloon and some cake. Easily pleased that one. We celebrated with Phil's side of the family this week.
|Cousin Maura turned 11 this month!|
|My little leftie.|
The best thing about the baby's birthday is how excited the other kids get.
Right now Andrew is learning to play Happy Birthday on the piano.
Maggie: "We're going to let him do anything he wants today, even ride my scooter."
Then they figured out they could ask for whatever they wanted and pretend it was Xander's idea....
J-P: "Xander says he wants donuts for his birthday".
We celebrated his birthday last weekend with my family. There are 5 summer birthdays amongst the littles...
The pinata finally broke, and all Alexander got was half a twizzler and a pair of glasses :)
Did you hear? The Prince's name is George ALEXANDER Louis.
They're gonna call him G. Xander for short.
This is non birthday related, but it's one of the most exciting moments of our married life...
Our student loan debt is paid off!!!!!
Status: Paid in Full...have there ever been sweeter words written?
It's taken us 11 years to pay off about $70,000 of student loan debt. We've scrimped and saved and sacrificed in order to do it, and it is so rewarding! Happy Dance!
Now we can finally start saving for the next house with four bedrooms!
But back to this guy...
Like his shirt says, yes girls, he's single. Shocking but he doesn't want to be tied down quite yet. He's got places to go, people to see, and lawns to mow.
Alexander Blaise, you have a rockstar name, and you are our little rockstar. You are the funniest, smartest, cutest, sweetest little 2 year old I know, and I am honored to be your Mom. You have brought so much joy and laughter and fun to our lives, and like Eamon once said "Without him, we would have nothing." So very true. We love you to the moon and back.
