Happy 2nd Birthday to Charlie!

Can't believe our little Charlie is now 2 years old.  Funny enough, we ended up at Applebee's for his birthday.  I asked the waiter if we could just have one scoop of ice-cream with a candle on top and we ended up with this hot plate - with an apple muffin and sizzling caramel and then, the ice-cream scoop and candle!
And then of course, came the singing.  I think Charlie was a little shocked, surprised, confused, and maybe just a tad excited at the end :-)

By the way, he loves using the word "baby" for something small.  And that even includes things like the opposite of loud, which would be "baby loud" for him. Too funny!
Family picture!
And then of course, it's the train ride at the mall. The boys love this!
Choo-choo...!!!
And then we let the boys play the the indoor fun fair for a little bit.  Graham loves to fish! Plus, I think it was one of the games that guaranteed a prize :-)
And then, it was time for the carousal.  Charlie is so serious!
And then it was time to go.  The boys love the water feature too that's by the front of the mall:
We forgot to pick up a present for Charlie but I think the boys have enough toys as is for now. Plus, Charlie really loves the leap-pad.  He's getting pretty good with some of the games, especially this Team Umizoomi one!

There are moments for sure, but thankfully both boys have been pretty good at sharing.  The 10-minute rule (give or take :-) has been working quite well... so far!  I think Charlie is already at the terrible 2s stage when he was like 1 1/2 years old.  So who knows how he's going to turn out in his 2s!  Hmm... I'm almost scared to think what will come in the 3s then. YIKES! Maybe I shouldn't think so far ahead yet.  Just going to enjoy his "cuteness" for now :-)
