Our Two-Point-Five Version

Look who officially turned two-and-a-half this weekend:

IMG_9058I made him hop up by the fireplace, because being two-and-a-half called for some snapshots.

(Oh, who am I kidding?  Mondays and This Is a Good Bowl of Cold Cereal are also reasons that call for snapshots in MY book.)

(Apparently, I take A LOT of pictures.)

(I’m not sure that you’ve noticed.)

I told Thing 2 to say, “Cheese,” and he did.  He said it with the total gusto and sincerity that boys across the globe say it with, when they just want to get the photo shoot finished as quickly as possible, because IT’S KILLING THEM.

This CHEESE SHOT seems a bit fake.

Welcome to two-and-a-half, Baby Boy.  Your family sure loves you!
