Look Who's Turning 2!

Time is going by so quickly and Dominic will be 2 on Tuesday (St. Patrick's Day). He is just the light in our eyes and we love him so much. He is doing very well and has attached to us so deeply. He also belongs to a weekly play group, and is thriving in his music and swim classes each week. He speaks a lot of gibberish but we always understand what he wants. He can say about 15-20 words, some in Spanish and some in English, and even some in unique Domi speech. His vocabulary includes:

  • Mama
  • Agua
  • Shoe
  • Deedo Off! (yelling at one of the dogs)
  • Dominic (his name pronounced like hominy)
  • Two (his soon to be age)
  • More (as in second serving of food!)
  • Done
  • Ethan (playmate)
  • Nana (Grandma)
  • Uh-oh
  • No
  • Ah (yes)
  • etc.

We started celebrating his birthday last week with his play group. We had an Elmo themed pizza party at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and we had a BALL! My parents and sister Toree joined us, so we were a happy and large group. Here are some pictures from that party.

My Mom's 70th birthday was March 6th so on Saturday we went on a boat ride on Canyon Lake to celebrate. It was so relaxing, the scenery was breathtaking and the weather was perfect!

Today we celebrated again with family. It was a joint party for my Mom and Domi and we had a Western theme. Domi was the sheriff and I made "Wanted" posters for all my family, and decorated with cowboy hats, bandannas, mini-horses and red-checked tableware. It was another gorgeous day and the bar-b-cue was yummy. All in all, we had a MOST WONDERFUL week! :)

On Tuesday (his actual birthday), he will get breakfast in bed and we will treat him to dinner at one of his favorite places, Red Robin, mmmmm. :)
