"How old are you?" "I'm two!"

Thomas' reply when anyone asks his name is "I'm two!"

Two is squeezy neck hugs, sloppy kisses, and "Pick me up! Pick me up! I want to see!"

Two is chubby little hands pulling books off of shelves, pushing the just-folded laundry onto the floor, and tearing pages of books.

Two is wanting to help with everything.

Two is sleeping soundly after a hard day of asking "why? why? why?" and getting covered in food and dirt.

Two is dumping any container with anything in it out all over the floor.

And using any long, easily held object as a bat.

This sweet two year old is a delight and joy. And he drives me crazy sometimes. I get over it pretty quickly though. How could you not, looking at a face like that?

*I've been having a bit of trouble composing posts lately with Blogger. Anyone else have things crazily jumping around, several drafts saving of a post for no apparent reason, and pictures going craaaaazy, or is it just me? And this text wouldn't left align. Sorry if this posted a few times in your feed or if it looks strange; I really don't know what's going on. It also published without me telling it to last night before I gave up. Bizarre.*


  1. Oh my goodness. What a precious little 2 yr old face!! :) So far, so good with my Blogger account. It's still allowing me total control. ;0) Have a great weekend.

  2. I've not had trouble with Blogger either so far.

    I can't believe he's two already! Wasn't he just born, like, last month? ;)

    Sloppy kisses back at him!

  3. Adorable.

    Thought of you when I saw this! Now will you take your make-at-home adventures to this extreme? http://ruhlman.com/2012/09/the-magic-of-making-salt/

    You are surrounded by the one and only ingredient!

  4. I think I made this post sound like a birthday one - he turned two back in March; I've just been noticing his two-ness lately. :)

    Margaret, it's been on my list for awhile, but I haven't thought to take a tight water-collecting vessel with me to the beach! Now that you've reminded me, you just might see it in an upcoming post. :)

    1. Can't wait to read about it!
