Happy Birthday to Owen and Josh!

Wow. This birthday is somewhat of a milestone for our family. This is the first time that we have a two year old and I am NOT already expecting or have already had another baby!

Owen totally knows that it is his birthday today. If you ask him how old he is he will say "Two!" and try to hold up two fingers, although he hasn't quite mastered that part yet. He leaves out the "birthday" part and just says "Happy To You"'s cute!

I was thinking this morning that it will be really cool when he is old enough to really understand that he and Josh have the same birthday. I was thinking that maybe by the time he turns three he might 'get' it, but if not, definitely by his fourth birthday I think he will really understand. Josh was in the shower this morning and I was talking to Owen about his birthday and told him about how today is daddy's birthday too. When Josh got out of the shower, Josh came and told Owen happy birthday and Owen pointed to him and said "Daddy too!" with this cute emphasized little voice. It was sweet:)

So today, we celebrate birthday's with One Voice as they perform the last of the Easter performances. Last night's opener went really really well. Jessalyn did great and the boys were super cute as they ran on stage in their little Biblical outfits. Owen stole the show in the second that he was out there. He totally seems to understand his job and does exactly what he is supposed to do. We'll see how today goes though..because the show is at the exact same time that he is usually napping. We'll see. I'm trying not to stress about it...just go with the flow and see how it all comes about!

Tomorrow will be a fun day with Easter and actually celebrating the birthday's. We will get up for the Sunrise Service (6am), then go to a big Church breakfast, then have two services right in a row and then head to Granny and Papa's for a nice afternoon of relaxing and eating!

I will try to get some good 'two year' portraits of Owen..I figured I would wait until I put him in his Easter outfit (that I haven't actually gotten yet!).

I will leave you with some pics from yesterday...Owen's last day of being one!
