Gannon turns 2!!

My sweet little peanut turned two on Thursday! Craig and I tried to wrestle him for a selfie – he has been HATING pictures lately!

It’s hard to tell who was more excited about opening gifts – Carver or Gannon. Carver needed several reminders that these were GANNON’s gifts and not his. We’ve been working on letters and numbers with Gannon so we got him a few puzzles that we used with Carver (and subsequently lost all the pieces too)

Here is a link to the ABC puzzle that literally taught Carver his letters by the time he was 2. We worked on them every morning at breakfast while we ate our waffles. This is a GREAT and CHEAP gift for any 2 year old:

Here’s a matching letter puzzle too:

Again, we are really working on letters at home – we’ve had several of these leap frog refrigerator toys and eventually, the pieces dwindle down and we get another one because we love it so much! This one was a bus one that I got for him – he LOVES watching Carver get on the bus – he is always talking about BUS and his favorite color is yellow so it was perfect! I also got one for my niece Georgia – a great gift for a two year old. Here is the link:

Gannon has been carrying it around all morning! I was on a Zoom call for an interview for the paper and in the background the whole time Gannon was playing the wheels on the bus! More on that interview next week….

As we always do for birthdays, we all went around and said something we loved about the birthday boy, we all agreed Gannon is the calm to our chaos, such a sweet and gentle soul (unless you give him the wrong sippy cup) and we just love his nature.

In other news, Gannon had a huge blow out this morning – he needed to be immediately placed in the bathtub. Why am I telling you this? BECAUSE I COULD SMELL IT! THIS WAS THE FIRST POOPY DIAPER I COULD SMELL SINCE JANUARY 10th WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH COVID! I was never so happy to clean up a dirty diaper.

We are just chilling this morning, hanging out. I’ve got a work day planned out and he is content playing with his legos and watching TV. He’s just my hangout buddy.

Here’s a picture of Carver and Gannon exactly on the day they turned two – my boys look NOTHING a like – which is fitting because they act nothing alike too!

Anyway, thanks for reading friends! We will check in again tomorrow!
