Happy 2nd Birthday, Keaton!

My Sweet Pea turned 2 today! I can't believe it!
(He has a thing for "wearing" my shirts lately...He can almost get them on right himself. That is not demonstrated in this picture, haha!)



We celebrated by giving him the remaining Mega Blocks we got for him at Christmas.

A friend made his oh-so-fun birthday shirt! (Thanks Melissa!)



I promised I would share his word list (I'm sure there are words we are forgetting, but, this is what I have documented -

...whew...

The day was going fairly well til he took off down the hall...I was on the couch nursing B and all of a sudden I hear screaming like I've never heard before! I jumped up and K is gimping around holding his right knee. I tell him he's Ok (he's on this "I hurt really bad til you tell me I'm ok" kick) and to run and get the ball for me (how I prove that he really is Ok). He runs and after 2 steps, he's on the floor, screaming. I say, "Keaton, come on bud, you're Ok!" He jumps back up and again, he is back on the floor screaming! He stands up to walk towards me and he's holding his knee and bawling....great...

I feel his knee...

He kicks me!

So, I call the pedi's office (JUST where I want to spend his birthday, ugh!) The nurse is all telling me to go to the ER for x-rays. I ignore her and call my chiro, but she's pretty much done for the day, so I call back and make an appt. at the pedi's office.

He finally calms down to take a nap. When he woke up, I tried feeling his legs to see if anything seemed out of place. He allowed me to touch his legs this time. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary so I just keep reminding him that he needs to sit and play and not be on his leg.

After about 45 minutes, he starts running around like a normal kid...I asked him if his knee hurt and he doubled over as if someone were cutting his leg off! So I stopped asking and he just kept playing.

I ended up calling and canceling the appointment, because who really wants to spend their 2nd birthday in the pedi's office?! I'm going to keep an eye on him and follow up with our chiro in the next day or two...

So...

We went to Mellow Mushroom for pizza tonight to celebrate! Their pizza is the best! We're so excited that they finally opened one close to us! He got a yummy cinnamon pretzel pizza for dessert!



Happy birthday, sweet pea! I can't believe how much you have grown and what you have accomplished in two years!!!!

Wow, he can say a lot! My son will be 2 in July, and he doesn't say nearly as many words.
Happy Birthday Keaton.
