You’re Only Two Once

My son turned two on Monday. Instead of having one big celebration on his actual birthday, we spread it out over the weekend:

  • Friday was his very first movie night. Mistake. More on that later.
  • Saturday he opened his birthday toys
  • Sunday we had cake and lit and blew out the same candle a hundred times
  • After naps on Monday we picked up Chris from work and went to the SF Zoo
The last year was a rough one for our family. Bringing Zoe into the world was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Even though it wasn’t great on (literal medical bill) paper, Jack and I had the sweetest routines and interactions. We went to to story time and music class and spent a thousand afternoons at the park and ate our dinners on blankets in the backyard.

Sometimes he was cranky, but he was mostly silly and kind and woke up from his naps singing, “Ohhhhh a pirate’s life is a wonderful life!” Because of him I can already see that miserable time through rose tinted glasses.

He is the most beautiful boy, inside and out. I’m so glad he’s ours.
