Grayson turns 2!

I would say that I am still in denial about my sweet first baby turning 2 last week, but he makes that hard with the tantrums he has recently thrown--ha! 

Grayson's birthday was so much fun this year. He actually understood that it was his special day & I'm pretty sure he expects us to sing him "Happy Birthday" every day. Although, to him, it's just "Happy Day!"

The celebration began last Tuesday on the day before his birthday. Grayson got to have his first school birthday party at MDO! We brought chocolate chip cookies for his friends & he got to wear the birthday crown all day. His teacher, Ms. Barbara, said he loved it when the class sang to him. He was such a ham! 
 We spent G's actual birthday at home. He went on a breakfast date with Ben to Chick-Fil-A that morning & we spent the afternoon outside playing in the sandbox & weed eating. Really, what more could a 2 year old boy ask for?!

 Throughout the whole day G would stop & sing "Happy Day tooooo, Happy Day tooooo!" That's as far as he gets. I think his new favorite song is "Happy Birthday!"

Grayson got to open his big presents the next day when Ben was home. He couldn't wait for daddy to get home so he could open his "pesents!" 

G's big present was his new tricycle! He loves watching all the kids on our street riding their bikes &  he especially loves helmets. This was the perfect gift! He's not quite tall enough to pedal by himself, but he is so close! He also got some new animals for his Little People Zoo & a new farm train set. He was a happy little 2 year old! 

Grayson's birthday party was this past Saturday. The theme was a no brainer: TRUCKS. Not just any trucks...construction trucks! We had the party outside in our backyard. We brought out G's fleet of ride-on truck toys & put all of G's small trucks in his giant sandbox.
 The biggest differences about this party compared to his 1st birthday? 90% of the decorations were purchased from Oriental Trading AND I didn't take a million pictures.

I recycled the birthday wreath from last year & just added the "2" and some wooden trucks. I bought yellow buckets from the Target dollar bins over the summer & used them for the party favors. Each kid got some truck stickers, a toy truck, and a construction rubber duck. 
It's nice having a boy who LOVES toy trucks...made for easy decorations!
We brought out G's table and put some painted styrofoam blocks, golf tees, and lots of toy hammers on it. The kids got to hammer in the "nails" and LOVED it. I got this idea from a blog that had lots of cute construction party ideas!
Family picture with the birthday boy! Griffin was NOT thrilled.

Grayson had a WONDERFUL birthday week!

What an absolutely adorable party! You did a great job Laura!

And Rhys is obsessed with helmets too! He always points out whether people are riding their bicycles with or without helmets on since they "protect his head." These two boys need to meet!!
