At 2, he don't quite know what’s going on.




We haven't had any family news for a while. So for your viewing pleasure, I post pictures of the Boy's second birthday party. It wasn't a fanfare affair [Can those two words be placed together?]. Laurel had been down in Atlanta visiting her parents. I flew from NYC to Atlanta on Saturday morning. We had a little, but lovely, birthday party [maybe the words 'Birthday Moment' is a better description.] Then we all flewback to NYC in the evening.

We know that from the 3rd birthday on, it’s gotta have more Oomph to it. At 2, he don't quite know what’s going on.

But -- for the record -- he adores his Thomas the Tank Engine gift. Playing with it as I type.

Why do some kid's stories and books and toys become universally liked by every child?

Love, Justin.

Happy 2nd Birthday to the boy!
So sad that I couldn't be there.
Seeing the photos of Laurel's folks place brings back so many good memories.
Makes me a little sad as well.
Things in Sydney today are a little lack lustre due to the loss by the socceroos...
They were robbed...

Hi. Yes, the 2nd birthday does go by without too much excitement. My kids did enjoy the cake however - if fact I think they could survive on cake given the chance.
It is a funny thing. Oliver LOVED Thomas from the moment he saw him. I love setting up different track configurations too!
