diego officially became a two year old on august 4th... yes, my lil bean is a full fledged toddler! on saturday, my yard was full of all the people who have watched him grow up these past two years... it wasn't really a kid party since there was only one other child around- and one dog too... but diego still had a dandy ol' time!
my niece ananda and diego were busy chasing each other and bouncing in the bounce house... my brother-in-law did all the grilling while i managed to still clean (couldn't resist)... my sister made the most beautiful cake and cupcakes for diego... superman themed- or as diego would say "sue-dah- dan!" between all the supermans and spidermans around, you could tell my son was having a hayday!
isn't the cake beautiful! oh, and it was delicious too!!! after the party, two of ramel's brothers, and our friend dan, along with my friend, jamie stuck around... by the time they all left, there were only two cupcakes and one sliver of cake left (and there were 6 extra cupcakes not even in the picture above)... the cake was THAT GOOD!
as you can see ananda had to help diego get some frosting off his ear... and diego just loved all his toys! my mom and dad gave diego the biggest spiderman ball... and a large plush spiderman too! diego also received an inflatable spiderman tent, krypto the superman dog, krypto dressed as batman, a teenage mutant ninja turtle action figure, legos, shoes, a fold-up table and chairs, as well as some big balloons... wasn't he blessed with a ton of goodies?!
one day i will tell you his birth story... and his two year life story to go with... but for now, i will end this post off with a note that diego brings a smile to my face and is my pride and joy... despite the fake tears and refusal to eat, he is perfect... gosh, i love my diego :D
