P is 2!!!

It has been a long couple of weeks, and most importantly, Brady's dad is doing much better and was awake and coherent before we had to leave.  I have so much to tell you about our time back in KS, but I want to dedicate this post to Parker.  I cannot believe that our self-proclaimed "big guy" is two.  He has been the highlight of our lives for 730 days and I can barely remember what we did with ourselves before he arrived.

When I first found out I was pregnant, I started this blog, originally named "shocked and knocked up" (my mom was really proud).  Every time I write a new post about Parker, I think about him reading them someday and hopefully, realizing how much he is loved.  I often wonder what he will think of the original name and wonder why we were so shocked.  I want him to know that I was shocked in part because my biggest fear was being unable to have children and his arrival (however unplanned) erased that fear.  Those five (or six) positive tests meant that I was going to be a mother and I would get to see Brady be a dad. Brady and I still smile thinking about how God's timing is so much better than our own. Feeling him grow inside of me brought my faith to a whole new level and when he was born I learned the meaning of miracles.   He has made every moment since then a blessing (yes, even the all-night teething, poop on the floor kind of moments:).   I can't believe that he is now two and can't wait to continue to watch him grow!

Here is a look back at how far we have come!! (there are a lot of pictures here...I promise if you scroll down far enough you'll see some 2nd birthday pics!)
In case you can't tell, the scale says 9lb 1oz...seriously, he looks like a 3 month old here!

2nd birthday morning...jet lag + lack of food + massive fun at the football game the day before = grumpy birthday boy

Birthday breakfast with mommy and daddy.  Presents always cheer him up!

He got a wooden train set, but I could only pack the little train in our suitcase

With Gram Gram and G-Dawg at his little party at BRGR (yes, we decided the best way to celebrate would be to let him have as many truffle fries as he wanted:)

We had a little breakdown because I am an idiot and decided to hand out everyone else's cupcakes before P's.  He thought that he wasn't getting one.

He had to have the one with blue frosting.

We really needed a nap.

Grammy and P...I need a photography class.
