Archie's 2nd Birthday Party

Okay so I put up some nicer photos of the boy closer to his actual birthday but here are some of his party and birthday at home with just family.
I know that he has been 2 for over a month now but let me gush a little about this boy. He is so smart. He knows his shapes, colors and numbers (he can count to 10, sometimes higher) in English and German. We are working on the alphabet but he will sometimes pick up a letter magnet and tell us what it is and he can sing the alphabet song and a few other favorites like Twinkle, Twinkle (he knows this in English and German) and Bache, Bache Kuchen. He still loves his books and will usually sit through the half hour story time with no problems and the story tellers will almost always compliment his great behavior. He loves to cuddle with his Papa and listen to him tell stories. He loves to make "Valentines" (anything crafty usually involving paper, scissors, tape, paint, stickers, crayons, etc.) with me. He loves to help. He "helps" with the dishes, laundry, sweeping, mopping, watering the garden, fixing things, cooking dinner, and anything to help his little brother. He is fun to talk to; the cutest things come out of his mouth. He sometimes calls mushrooms bubbles because of their shape. I have also heard the sentence, "I need some celery!" come out of his mouth more than once. He loves his fruits and veggies. Favorite meals include hotdogs, chicken salad, quesadillas and sauce-less pizza.

We have a few strawberry plants in the backyard. The first time that Jacob picked one with him and let him eat it he asked for more. Jacob told him he would have to wait until the strawberries turned red. So Archie went and found his little lawn chair and pulled it right up to the strawberries to wait. :) That boy loves his berries.

Back to his party, he had a blast. We had lots of berries and he loved the pinata and cake and friends and presents. What more could a two year old want?

On his birthday with my family.
 I did a little photo booth during his party and here are some of those pics.

Caleb was happy play for the birthday guests. 

He asked for a blueberry pinata for his birthday so I made him this.
 What he lacked in skill he made up for with enthusiasm. He was so happy to hit the pinata.
