I have never felt afraid to have a two year old, it just seems silly to be apprehensive of an age... i would rather hold onto confidence as a parent. Isaiah has definitely tried to push his limits with me and strain for independence which i look at as a positive thing. I would rather him do it now than later.... (which he probably will do it later anyways.)
He is definitely changing into a little boy... full of excitement, energy, fearlessness and silliness. He loves to throw things, jump off things, run, and yell very loudly. My job is to allow those things.... but to teach him when it is appropriate. For a while i thought he was going to err on the side of caution and be an introvert, but to my surprise he is changing into quite the opposite. I loved him then, and i love him now... Mama's love is so unwavering.
So for Isaiah's birthday, it was hot. We decided to grab some dinner and drive up to the little theatre nearby and watch the new POOH movie. It was so adorable, and he sat still and barely blinked his poor little eyes! Afterward i took him to the park to play for a while.
The following Saturday we had a birthday party for him under the pavilion in the park with both sides of our family. It was a Monkey theme with bananas everywhere and a very cute cake. He loved all the presents he got, and definitely all of the family that surrounded him. It was a successful day with no rain!
