Yesterday, Chris and I drove down to Northern Virginia to celebrate Jake’s 2nd birthday! I can’t believe the last time we saw him was a year ago. So much has changed…Jake’s vocabulary has grown exponentially, he can walk (and run!) by himself, and he can open his own presents. He’s so adorable! His little voice saying things like, “Choo choo train!” melts my heart every single time. :)
Here are some photos from his big day, which was a Thomas & Friends themed party…
He was so excited to open presents!
I LOVE this shot Chris got of Jake’s excitement! He’s like “OOOOH!”
The gift of the day came from Jake’s grandparents (Charlotte’s parents)– a Lightning McQueen self-powered car! Soooo awesome!
Of course, Chris has to commandeer him to playing with trains…(the toy he’s holding in the right picture is a helicopter)
Isn’t it funny that no matter how many cool toys a kid gets, their favorite one is always the cheapest one? In this case, Jake has a good run with a balloon.
He was reaching up for his balloon, which had floated up to the ceiling, and Chris stood over him and snapped this:
And here’s us playing with the front-facing camera on the iPhone. He was so fascinated seeing himself!
Jake’s ninang/godmother got him this ADORABLE set of PJs. I asked him, “Hey Jake, can I borrow your pajamas?” He gave me a very cute “No!” ;)
Happy birthday, Jake!
