Little guy turns 2 the end of the month. I can't believe time has gone that fast already. Of course, the first year was epic in to many area's of my life so that made time fly even faster. 2 years old. He's communicating via words more and more every week. He has a big personality. He's got a natural happiness and gentleness about him (not counting the occasional toddler scream or floor throw or hitting). He loves his pets. He enjoy's walks in the stroller. He's obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba and Super Mario Bro. He doesn't care for playground equipment and would much rather just roam around exploring. He's a brave little guy trying to jump on his own into the deep of the pool while mommy chases, horrified (always has floaties of course).
We aren't doing a party. Just the 3 of us. I'm not a party person. My family wasn't really either. I think I had one official birthday party as a child where some classmates came but they weren't all close friends or anything so I think I sort of went with it because my Mom thought she was doing something nice for me (sshh don't tell her). I figure we have plenty of years ahead once he starts school and makes more friends, if he wants a party. I guess i'm like Rob in that manner, wanting a more one on one family approach lol
I will be making him a cake though. I couldn't decide on what character or theme I wanted for it but after weeks of debating I have decided he's always liked Yo Gabba Gabba the best. (screw the parents that are anti-character's, we only live once). I am aiming for a cake like this http://catchmyparty.com/photos/624746 but with these toys instead http://www.amazon.com/YO-GABBA-Multipack-Figure/dp/B00BJRSV4A/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1405005547&sr=1-1
I snagged some decor (non gabba gabba) at the BX a while back on clearance so that's the most i'm doing for decor. I may try to find a balloon or something but my dog would go nuts and just try to destroy it's existance. I can't wait for his little birthday!
Well since Rob made rank (not sure of when he's actually sewing on yet) he needs to attend another round of schooling. That means he'll be gone for almost 2 months. We found out earlier in the week that it's happening very soon already! Thankfully he'll be here for Mannix's birthday at least. He was TDY for his birthday last year :(
I found myself thinking..how long would it take for me to lose weight and for it be obvious, to him at least that i'm a little more noticeably in shape? It usually takes 2-3 months before other's notice much physical change in a person that's been exercising. But I think someone your with 24/7 may notice even sooner. So That is one of my goals while he's gone, to lose a little weight and start getting toned up. Of course, this has to be a lifestyle goal more than just to get all sexy for the husband otherwise the fitness and weight loss won't last. I blame my frump and weight gain the last year on becoming stay at home and getting lazy and eating away my saddness about my dad. And for my knitting/crochet hobby because I sit still for hours just needling away lol Eitherway, I need to start now if I hope to have some sort of physical appearance change before he gets back. A bike ride here or a jog there isn't enough. Time to start being more consistant.
