By the time Jack's actual birthday rolled around, he had partied hard, bounced in a bouncy house, opened a LOT of presents, and eaten his weight in cupcakes and cake. But the 19th of February was still a ton of fun.
He started the day by modeling his appropriate t-shirt wear.
He really looks ridiculously tall in that photo. He's not that tall. John asked if he was wearing skinny jeans and I said "how dare you!" Still, he looks pretty cute. We headed off to music class where he banged a tambourine while everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to him as Pop Pop and Grammy observed.
Now, because it was a special occasion, and because his Pop Pop has quite an affection for ice cream, we headed to Baskin Robbins for "lunch" to celebrate. Jack really has only had ice cream a handful of times (5?) but I know he LOVES it. With a passion. Like his mommy. I let him choose his flavor, suggesting good ol' vanilla or strawberry or chocolate. But, making me proud, he pointed defiantly to a flavor called "World Class Chocolate" which was white chocolate mousse ice cream swirled with dark chocolate mousse. Good choice. He was ready and I wasn't surprised when he dug in with gusto.
And I mean, GUSTO. YUM!!
He was very pleased with himself and didn't seem to mind that his special "I am 2" shirt was covered in chocolate.
I tried to get a nice pic with his visiting Grammy and Pop Pop to commemorate the occasion but he just wanted to get down and RUN.
And run he did. He was having a great time. And on your 2nd birthday, you really should be happy, giggling, and covered in ice cream.
