My sweet, little nephew turned 2 years old! I just can't believe it. He is getting so big right before my eyes. I have to say - I think he is the sweetest, cutest, funniest little boy I know. I am biased - but I just love him so much. So his birthday is definitely something to celebrate!
At the hospital when Grayson was born
Grayson had a joint birthday with 3 of his buddies who were all born in May 2010 as well. They had a barnyard party with a petting zoo and it was so fun. My sister, Kristen, did an amazing job decorating for the party. She was like a pinterest queen. Besides being crazy hot, it was a great party.

2 years old and party favors - so fun!
All 4 birthday boys
Grayson in the petting zoo. He loved it!
Grayson and the ducks
Harper and I in the shade - it was hot.
Meeting Campbell. Campbell's mom, Candice was very helpful because she had lots of the same problems as a baby as Harper.
Grayson trying to put Harper's shoe back on. She hates shoes (it's probably because her feet are too chubby to fit in any shoe).
Giving kisses to "Baby Parper". He loves her so much.
All the birthday boys lined up to get sung to and eat their birthday cupcakes.

The Boettcher family was my second family growing up. They are amazing people and I love getting to see them. My friend, Carol, lives out of town. But I got to visit with her parents and grandmother. Such a sweet family.
On Grayson's actual birthday, we went to my sister's house and celebrated with the family. We had fun hanging out and teaching Grayson everything about the number 2. Grayson helped make the dip while I was dealing with slicing off part of my thumb. Such a good helper! Then, we sang Happy Birthday to him and he danced to the "Cha Cha Cha" part. He opened presents and got lots of boy stuff. Tools, baseball, golf and soccer stuff. And he was all about those boy toys.
Showing Pop his 2 dollars
He has this awesome new shy face and laugh. He's so cute!
He got golf clubs, a soccer ball and goal, and a new tee ball. And I have to brag just a little because that kid has some good hand eye coordination. He hit the ball on his first swing and slammed it right into his momma (he actually hit his baby sister but it was a wiffle ball and didn't hurt).
Playing soccer with his new ball and goal. He scored once against Harper before she quit.
My sweet nephew is 2 and such a great kid. Love getting to celebrate him.
Happy 2nd Birthday Grayson Henry McCool!
