Happy Birthday Week!

Yesterday was Owen's birthday. He's embracing being two with both arms! Which is to say he goes from happy to crabby in a very short period of time and he wants what he wants RIGHT NOW! I'm trying to keep my cool and be consistent. I think he's learning a lot right now and gets frustrated easily. I know how he feels!

Sunday we had a backyard BBQ birthday party. There was one other child, my best friend's daughter, and she and Owen played very well together. It was just the right number of children!

This is the invitation for Owen's party. I forgot to post it earlier when I sent them out.
We had a great time. The weather was perfect. Owen enjoyed having everyone here and playing outside. I love this picture of my mom and Owen. It's my photo for the 4th in my 31 days project.
This is my May 3rd photo.

As for the title of this post, I believe that everyone should get a week to celebrate their birthday. So this is Owen's birthday week. He doesn't really know it now but he'll get it later! Morgan always feels like he doesn't get his own week because our birthdays are 4 days apart and my birthday upstages his. It's rough being a man.

I believe in week-long birthday celebrations too! My fave show used to be Gilmore Girls and they always celebrated for a week. The pict with the b-day hat is priceless!
