Gavin's 2nd Birthday

Well, it happened. Our baby turned to 2. He really isn't a baby anymore and I cannot believe how much he has grown in the last 2 years.
This was our newborn:

Here is our 1 year old:

And now he's 2!

I think that he had the best birthday any 2 year old could ask for and he has played with his toys nonstop. He gets upset every night because he doesn't want to stop playing and go to bed.
Here are Gavin's Stats:

As a newborn:
21.5 inches, and 8lbs 7oz
95th percentile

As a 1 year old:
32in, and 23lbs 10oz
95th for height, 5oth for weight

2 years old:
36in, and 29lbs
85th for height, 62nd for weight
The Dr. said that he had a growth spurt. But I feel like he always has a growth spurt. :)

On Thursday, November 10th we let Gavin open his presents as soon as he woke up in the morning. He has really gotten in to Toy Story lately so when he saw Toy Story wrapping paper he was SO excited. We gave him a stuffed Buzz and Woody from the Disney Store as well as an Aquadoodle (best invention EVER!), and a few books. We also bought him new shoes and clothes but he didn't care for those after opening his toys. He was so excited and played with them all day. Gavin and I went to McDonald's for lunch so that he could play in the playplace and then when Daddy came home we went over to Red Robin for Dinner. And by the way, they now have sweet potato fries, SO good! After dinner we video chatted with Grandma and Grandpa Jones as he opened his presents from them of Toy Story 1 and 2. We then talked to Grandma and Grandpa Barrus and Aunt Amanda. Aunt Amanda gave him a Woody to go with the Buzz Lightyear she had sent him in October. And Grandma and Grandpa Barrus gave him a Toy Story Tent and Sleeping Bag. He also received a card and money from Great Grandma and Grandpa Barrus, and a Lightning McQueen Pillow Pet from Aunt Tiffany and Uncle Kellan. It was a great day!

Lots and lots of presents!

On Friday we had his Birthday Party! We are so grateful to all of our friends who came to enjoy his birthday, and he loves all of the gifts he received! He was given a stuffed Bullseye, a remote control Mater, two cars from the Cars 2 movie, and a Mr. Potato Head. Cars and Toy Story toys are perfect for this 2 year old. He was truly in heaven. We played a Toy Story trivia game and I had the kids try to throw snakes into the basketball hoop (I had a boot attached that read, Get the snake in my boot!). We then had his Toy Story cake and opened the presents.

Ready for a Toy Story party!

He was happy to finally have that cake!
Thank you to all the family and friends that made Gavin's birthday so special!

Gavin was definitely spoiled on his birthday! I am so grateful that I get to be his mom and watch him grow. He is such a joy in our lives.

We are really excited for the coming weeks. We find out the gender of the baby on Tuesday, Breaking Dawn midnight premier on Thursday, Grandma Barrus comes the next Monday and then Grandpa, Aunt Amanda and Uncle Nic come on Wednesday for Thanksgiving. Christmas is just around the corner and we definitely LOVE this time of year!
