No. Stop. Please don't do it.

One more inch...one day older...and you'll be in
TIMEOUT, young man!


We can't believe you're TWO. Where has the time gone?


It seems like yesterday when we greeted you for the first time. You were a big boy...9.2 pounds, with 8 of it in your sizable head!

The first 6 weeks were rough, but now I know you were just putting me through mommy boot camp. I was clueless and you needed to show me the ropes...FAST!

After that, it was mostly smooth sailing. We just watched you grow.

You breezed through 4 of the hottest summer months wearing protective gear a.k.a. a medical helmet for your torticollis.

We loved watching you reach new milestones!

We were charmed by your sweet smile and zest for life!


We shared some of our favorite places with you!

and now...

Every moment of every day we get to learn from you.
You remind us that there is nothing more important in life than family!




You are the best, BUBBY!
We love you mucho, mucho, mucho, mucho!

Happy 2nd Birthday!

(Now quit growing)

Happy Birthday Jack! Such a sweet post Ali! Seriously, where has the last 2 years gone? Jack is such a cutie! I love his little California hat! I think we should make it a goal for Jack and Carter to meet before they are 3!

Happy Birthday to Jack! If you find a remedy for children to stop growing I could use 4 bottles of that here...
