Caycen's 2 Year Stats

Caycen had his two year old check-up this past Wednesday and he did so good! They flushed his ears out, because he had lots of ear wax, and he sat there the whole time and just let them do it. Then they pricked his finger to get some blood and he didn't even cry! He sat there and watched her putting his blood in the little tube and I said "Look Caycen it's your blood" and he goes "blood mommy!".  Last, he got a Hepatitis A shot, which he cried pretty hard because he wasn't really expecting the pain, but he only cried for about 2 minutes and he was ok.  The nurses were so nice, they gave him stickers and a free ice cream cone coupon from Chick fil a.  It was a pretty good visit. Now he doesn't have to have shots again until he's 4! yay!




So here are my big boy's stats:

Height: 36 & 3/4 inches (97%)
Weight: 33.6 lbs (94%)
Head Circumference: 47 %
BMI: 17.4 (72%)


He's looking good and healthy :)


LOVE this boy!

Caycen's 2nd Birthday Party

We had Cayen's 2nd birthday party yesterday and it was SO.MUCH.FUN!!!!!!

Here are some pictures of the decorations:
door hanger
fire fighter hat with all the kids names on them and coloring books to take home



the food table








I didn't realize how many kids we invited, but it was great because they had a blast! I really didn't expect it to go so well.

And of course not everything went as expected... but does it ever with a 2 year old??

Here was my plan in my head: We were going to eat, do cake, open presents, then let the kids loose in the backyard to play and people could leave whenever they got ready... but nope, not how it went. Here is a recap of the party:

First the guests started to arrive and of course the kids could see all the "water stuff" in the backyard. So they wanted to GO OUTSIDE and play... so they played and got all wet and just ran from water toy to water toy.










Next, people started taking a break from playing and started to eat some food.



Then we sang "happy birthday" to Caycen and ate some cake.




After cake, we opened presents.

Capri helped Caycen out a lot :)
and of course we can't open presents without a meltdown too!!! haha!
Last, we went back outside for some fun with water balloons, bubbles, water shooters, and wetting the adults!







By the end of it the kids were all worn out {which means the birthday party was definitely a success!!!}.

Thank you to all of you who came to celebrate Caycen's 2nd birthday party! It really meant a lot to have so many friends and family there! We love y'all!!!!

And here are a few more fun pictures from the party:







We forgot to take a family picture at the party... so we set the timer and took a picture ourselves!!! About as good as it was gonna get! haha!

And he's TWO!!!!!!
