Birthday presents, continued

Today is James' birthday. Holy crap, how did two years go by so fast? That's such a cliche but also so true.

So we got him a train set and a kitchen set over a month ago, and those were our big presents to him. Also, Grandma Stephanie, Grandma Robin and Grandpa Dave all came to visit, so that was like a big huge present for all of us as well. And we're throwing James a party on Saturday, so that's part of our present to him also.

You wanna know what he got us for his birthday? A big ol' pile of poo in the living room.

That's right. He pooped in our living room tonight after dinner.

Big pile.

Of poop.

And then he ran over to me and said "PEE POTTY!" So I said okay and we started to run to the potty but then I almost tripped over the ginormous surprise poop.*

I'm starting to wonder if we should just conveniently "forget" to celebrate our birthdays next year. Are we cursed?

In other news...We taught James that he's two today, and he managed to say it to us once when we asked. Then we said it again: "How old are you today, James?" And he said "Four!" So we said " old are you today?" And he said "...THREE!" And then we finally got him to say TWO again.

And then just now Ben asked him and he said FIVE!

I almost believe him.

*Incidentally, he DID actually go pee in the potty. But it seems we still have some learning to do before we're completely done mastering this whole potty thing.

Sorry, but this is hilarious! What family would EVER let him live down what he did on his second birthday?? I can see it now. "Gee, Cindy, did James tell you how he celebrated his second birthday? No?"
Can't wait for the party!
Love to all,
Grandma S.
