Our baby boy turned Two! Years! Old! on September 21st, and today we all went in for his 2-year checkup. He’s still growing healthy and strong, weighing in today at an even 30 lbs. and 35 inches tall.
We had a low-key but very fun birthday celebration, taking the bus out to Coney Island for a trip to the New York Aquarium, and then lunch at Totonno’s before heading home again for a nap and homemade brownies. Julian loved seeing the fish and other sea creatures, and even got to touch a horseshoe crab!
And what kid doesn’t love good pizza?
(This stuff is famous for a reason.)
Mike made a batch of delicious homemade brownies for our birthday boy, and helped him blow out the candles after the usual song. Julian’s Nana and Papa Hess sent along a short video clip of them singing “Happy Birthday”, too, which Jules wanted to watch again and again. We’ll get to see them in person again soon, as they’re planning to be here for the birth of Julian’s little sister, just weeks (?) from now.
I can’t believe how quickly our baby boy has grown, and I really love the person he is becoming. Between the new baby and Mike putting the finishing touches on his book, our life is going to be a little crazy over the coming months, but I am really looking forward to having some time at home to spend not just with the new baby, but hanging out with my sweet Julian.
