I wanted to avoid generic characters like Elmo and Thomas decorating the house for Carter's second birthday, so the party was themed with trucks and jeeps because, well, that's all he talks about. Ever.
Here's what I threw together.
Oreo cupcakes (Pinterest inspired!) I made these from scratch, icing and all. They were delicious. (Store bought icing is delicious, too. And way less work.)
Seven kids crammed into Carter's playroom and gave those outdated, plastic baby toys a run for their money. I've never seen Carter so happy.
When anyone escaped the playroom, we kept them busy making canvas monster puppets, beading bracelets and eating sugar.
So far, I've found Two to be kinda refreshing. I've waited for a long time to be able to conversate with this fragrant little being, and now that he's understanding me and giving me answers and opinions, we really have graduated from infant and come into this entirely untouched way of getting to know each other. Communication. I love it. As it turns out, he's naturally just a really cool, simple person. Who knew?
