Pedro turned 2!
The last year of his life has been much harder than the first year, what with the messes and the tantrums. But he's still a sweet little guy and we love him a ton.
What can Pedro do at 2?
-Swim like a little fish.
-Follow his sister around all day long.
-Talk in full sentences.
-Sleep for 2 1/2 hours in the afternoon and still sleep close to 12 at night.
-Fiercely defend his property.
-Say, "Hi-ya!" as he hits or kicks you. (charming, eh?)
-Ask "What's that?" and "Why?" a hundred times a day.
-Go on family outings to the beach.
-Make messes with the best of them (just ask my mom, he attacked her computer with a marker last week.)
-Make his mom smile.
We celebrated his big day quietly at home-cake, ice cream, and a few presents. I was so glad Vanessa (the pregnant maid) wasn't around to tell me what a horrible mom I am for not spending $1500.00 on a party that he wouldn't even remember. At least my parents were here, so we had a couple of guests.
I teared up periodically throughout the day and by the time Guapo got home from work, I was ready for a good cry. Unless we get a surprise baby, this was our last 2 year old birthday. In one year's time we should be officially done with diapers (hopefully!), highchairs, cribs, pack and plays, etc. etc. I am so torn between wanting my kids to be independent and wanting to always to have a little one around the house. Oh well. That's life I suppose. I've just got to to enjoy each day with them. :)
We love you Pedro. Happy Birthday!
