Dumpling Update: George is 2

Little boy George is 2! He's such a joy to have in our family and we're having so much fun watching him grown up. George is a very busy kid and loves anything on wheels, boats, and airplanes. So far his proving to be a good little traveler and has already flown about 10 times. He still loves to eat, a lot, and usually will devour anything you put in front of him. Right now one of his favorites is chicken pot pie. 
I want to write down all the words he's saying now but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to remember all of them. I'll just list my favorites:

There you go Edith
That's it!
Donut mouth?
That's nice
Edith's sweet
Calls meats by the sound they make

Weight: 27 pounds
Length: 35 Inches

Party Party

We had a little party for George the week after his birthday. Because most of the kids his age take afternoon naps I decided to do it in the morning and serve brunch. George is obsessed with donuts so instead of a cake I just piled up glazed donuts and put a candle on top. It was so easy that I think I'll probably do a brunch birthday for Edith's first birthday next year.
The theme was things on wheels since that's all he cares about right now. It made decorating easy since I just used all of his toys.

I would have loved to set up everything in the yard but the grass was really wet and it was cloudy so it wouldn't have dried out. We set up the tables and chairs in the driveway and it turned out fine.

George was pretty excited about his candle and donut.

The sandbox was a huge hit! I don't think the kids did anything else other than dig the whole time.

George Turns 2

 George turn the big 2 on Saturday. He had a busy day of great food, fun outings, and a lot of presents. 

We started the morning with a few cards, books, and new coloring supplies. 

George asks for donuts or pancakes everyday so I made cornmeal pancakes with blackberry sauce for his breakfast. 

Nathan assembled his sandbox from Poppa and Mamaw while George was taking his nap. 

His big present from Nathan was an old Tonka dump truck that used to be Nathans. 

Nathan completely restored it and it looks amazing. George LOVES it!

A handful of local farms were having Farm Days on Saturday. It's pretty much just an open house where you can wander around and check-out the animals and equipment. 

First ever hayride!

Sitting on the tractors was his favorite part of the farm.

After leaving the farm we headed to our favorite burger spot. George really likes hamburgers and fries (so do we) so it was another little treat for him.

It also happens to be at the marina and one of George's other loves is boats.

 And if all of that wasn't enough we had cake and more presents when we got home.

The last two years have flown by little man. You're such a huge blessing to us and so much fun!
