It seems odd to say that a two-year old over-indulged on his birthday. But that's just what John Thomas did. We celebrated on Sunday, a day early, with friends and family at home. He ran around having a wonderful time having too many meatballs and too much ice cream.
He did indeed understand the concept of blowing out the candles this year, but needed some assistance from Daddy to actually do it. Opening presents was fun. He found it much easier with gift bags, and wanted to play with a toy as soon as he opened it. It really threw the other kids at the party for a loop, as they were anxious for him to open the next one and the next one.

Getting accustomed to winter outerwear has taken some adjustment. But he seems to just need a week or two to accept each new piece of clothing. When we first bought his winter boots in late October, he told us they were "Too big" every time we put them on him. These protests faded by the time snow hit the ground, but then we had the same argument about his winter jacket. Then he was happy to put on the boots and jacket, but wanted no part of the hat or mittens. Then he was fine with the hat, but still not happy with mittens. He's almost over the mittens now too, as he realizes that if he doesn't keep them on, we go inside. His biggest frustration is trying to hold his snow shovel while wearing them. It is especially difficult for him as he doesn't seem to want to keep his thumbs in the thumbs of the mitts.

We've been having lots of fun with our now two-year-old boy. He's saying big words like:
