Happy 2nd B-day Aveman!

Today marke Avery-Grant's 2nd birthday! It is hard to believe that two years has flew by already. Last year, Justin and I took off work on his birthday and took him on an outting. I really wanted to go that route again this year since we had such a great time last year, but then last week happened. Justin hurt his back at work, and had to use his "birthday days" as sick days, and I was left to try to make it a special day on my own.

So this morning, I woke up and used the left over helium from the tank from his b-day party last weekend and made a "UP" movie sized bundle of balloons to welcome him in his b-day day.... I knew instantly when he woke up and found the balloons because I could hear him squealing and jumping on the bed..

He spent a good part of the morning running through the house with his birthday balloons, and I make him some scrambled eggs, yogurt, and toast... After eating his little breakfast, he wanted to pick a movie to watch -so we spent a few more hours watching "Cars" of course.. I put him down for an early nap, so we could start our adventure.

When he finally woke up, we were out the door and we went to Chuck-E-Cheese. At that point the day kinda went nuts. They aren't lying when they say it's a place where "a kid can be a kid" because my kid was running from one end to the other- jumping from one game to the next, squeeling with excitment as every moment passed. His cousin Acie, and my sis joined me as the boys went crazy.... and then the moment came when the pizz was done and it was time to remove the boys from the games... Let's just say that the terrible twos kicked into high gear, and I saw a side of Ave that I had never seen before. The best way to describe it was a cross between an excorsim like anger, and a wild animal forced to be cage. There was weird screeching growl like screams that sounded like he was being abused.... after the HUGE meltdown I removed him from the whole situation and tried to calm him down in the bathroom- which worked- thankfully... lol... and we were able to sit down and eat-kinda.

After chuck e cheese, we went to dairy queen for dessert and called it a night.

Avery, Justin and I spent the evening with the music station on, looking at our pictures from when he was born, reminiscing, and watching Avery bust out some dance moves. All in all- a good day.

But since Justin missed out on our special day, we are devoting Sunday to taking Avery to the Children's Museum in Cincinnati (which was the original plan)! Which should be fun!!
