Josiah is 2!

Don’t believe me? Look over there on the right… See? It’s says he is. Yeah, well, we don’t believe it either, but he sure is growing up fast, isn’t he?

This photo was taken on Sunday — Josiah’s second 2-year birthday party (more about that later). This was the family party, here in Kansas City. What fun!

It seems like I always say that it’s been a long time since the last post. The truth is, aside from normal life stuff, this birthday stuff is exhausting! And, on top of that, Josiah had a couple of bad weeks of sleeping, but… Let me back up a little…

The day before Easter, we all went out to visit the family in California. Boy, was that a fun trip! But, it took most of the week for Josiah to get used to the two-hour time difference, so we were waking up very early in the morning every day. When we got back, it seems to have taken Josiah a couple of weeks to get back on the Kansas City schedule. Thankfully, he has slept well the last three nights in a row!

This picture is from Josiah’s first 2-year birthday party, in California. Josiah was so happy to get to play with his cousins all week.

This is from Josiah’s third 2-year birthday party, here in Kansas City. This one was with all of our friends. As you can see, Josiah is getting the hang of blowing out candles (even though he still needs a little help from Mommy).

So, in California, we got to do plenty of fun things — as usual for the Samoff family. We got to have a family Easter, see a lot of our extended family (even Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Pierce), see other friends, go to the beach, hike, go to a petting zoo, etc. As you can see below, Josiah loved every minute.

Of course, best of all were all of the birthday parties. And, the best part of those? The Elmo cupcakes!!!

Mommy did a great job making about fifty Elmo cupcakes, and… As you can see, the cupcakes were a big hit. Josiah loved eating Elmo’s jelly bean nose the best.

Now, guess what… Josiah gets to have a fourth 2-year birthday party at daycare today! How lucky is he?

The luckiest big boy ever! Happy birthday Josiah! Kisses from Auntie Erica and Uncle Rob
