Happy Birthday Bryson!

I can't believe that today is my sweet baby boy's 2nd birthday! Where has the time gone?! He has grown up way to fast and so far ahead of where he should be. We went to the doctor today for his check up and she said that is development is like that of a 3 year old! He is so smart and so independent. She was impressed with his vocabulary and his interest in the potty. He is a big boy weighing in at 34.4 pounds and is 34 1/4 inches tall! He has gained almost 5 pounds since our last visit on January 18, so since he is gaining weight too fast, we are switching him to either 2% or 1% milk and limiting the amount of milk that we give him during the day. She also suggested that we start using a normal cup instead of a sippy type cup to limit the amount he is drinking at one time. Thankfully he loves water so I don't think this will be a problem. She was also pleased with the types of foods that he enjoys eating and that even though he doesn't really like beef, it sounds like he's getting plenty of protein. She was also pleased with the fact that he rarely drinks juice since juice really isn't necessary, it's more of a treat.  I thought he would have been due for some shots, but nope, he is all caught up. I'm thinking he won't need anymore, other than a flu shot, until his 5 year check up but I may be wrong. We haven't done anything too exciting yet for his birthday but just getting to spend some extra time with him is enough. We gave him one of his gifts today since it's his actual birthday. It was the Fresh Beat Band CD and he loves it! We bought him tickets to their concert so we have to get him ready to sing along with them. Tonight we are going to dinner at Lucia's here in Helena with my parents and Martha and Will and I will give him another small present there. Since it's time for him to drink out of a big boy cup, I bought him the cutest little Toy Story dinner set that includes a big boy cup! Today and tomorrow will be spent getting everything ready for his party, but with the threat of severe weather tomorrow afternoon, I'm really on a time crunch. Hopefully I will be able to finish everything before the bad weather hits. His party is planned for Saturday at Cahaba Lily Park here in Helena, but with the way the weather is looking, we may have to go with our backup plan of using the church REC center. Either way, he's going to have so much fun! It's just so crazy to think that 2 years ago he looked like this
 and year ago he looked like this
and today he looks like this
He has grown up way too fast! Here's a look back at the best 2 years of my life with the most awesome 2 year old ever!  (they are all out of order, but I'm too lazy to fix them) HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYSON!!!!!!
