Happy Birthday Little Man

Hard to believe this sweet little guy is already two! He is such a fun kid and brings our family so much joy. He is talking up a storm these days and can effectively communicate everything he wants - hopefully this will help avoid any tantrums that sometimes come with this age! He loves trains, trucks, cars, etc. (anything with wheels) and also loves Mickey Mouse, Tigger and Pooh, and basically anything "Playhouse Disney." He loves to read stories, sing songs, and play with his brother and sisters. He is especially a Daddy's boy and every time I am on the phone, regardless of who I am talking to, he follows me around and says "Talk to Daddy!" Mark never fails to get a thrilling "welcome home" from work with Ammon yelling "Daddy's Home!" running to the door, and smothering him with hugs and kisses. We love you Ammon - Happy Birthday!
Blowing out the candles (or at least thinking about it)
Josh started prepping Ammon for his presents a few days before his birthday. I thought it would be in vain, but one of the first things Ammon said when he woke up in the morning was "open presents?" He got the hang of it no problem!Enjoying a musical tractor from Grandpa H
Enjoying a musical card from Grandma & Grandpa B
A train puzzle that makes a choo choo sound when it is done. He figured out how to do this puzzle so fast!
Excited about a new Richard Scarry book
Poor little Ella was sick all weekend. Even though she had a high fever, my ever-selfless sweetie managed to color a train for Ammon, which of course he loved.

I love how excited the kids are for him

  1. Oh that picture of Ella is just perfect. :) Glad Ammon had a great birthday.

  2. Can I just say sometimes it's hard to be on a mission! I love it here but sure do miss the special events. And the ordinary events too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ammon!
