Today Joseph turned two. This morning I woke up with a lot of last minute ideas of things I wanted to to for his birthday. One of those things was make a a banner out of a bunch if his faces wearing party hats. You have probably seen it before. Anyway I needed pictures so I set a chair down outside and asked him to sit on it so I could take some pictures. I got these pictures in like 20 seconds and then was done.
Birthdays are always a time of reflection for me. They are also a busy time. Usually I am busy on the outside and reflecting on the inside. I hope I will be able to take some time to write about the feelings I have in my heart as my youngest changes from a baby to a boy and my oldest is almost 8 and becoming more accountable for his choices and becoming more grown up (in a boyish sort of way). Basically I think birthday celebrations were invented to keep moms from crying all day for days. I am so tired tonight and will post his birthday pictures soon but I had to put this up here tonight and remember that on this day, I was happy and completely in love with this boy.
