Sunday was Troy's 2nd birthday. What a cutie! He definitely keeps me on my toes, but his mess making and mischief is purely the result of his curiosity and experimental personality. He's a great talker, a great eater, and loves to copy cat and keep up with his brothers. Troy is very self-sufficient and has no qualms about letting you know when you've crossed him.
This year he knew what to do with wrapping paper, but he still had plenty of help from his brothers. Troy (and Jakob and Brock) got a couple of movies, a xylophone/piano, a driving toy, and a cash register. He also got boring stuff like clothes, jammies, and shoes. He sang "Happy Birthday" to himself all day. And when you asked him how old he was, after a prompting of "two", he would say "TWO!" and punch up his hands, holding up one finger on either hand.
Here's a video and a slide show of Troy's "Awe-sahm" day!
P.S. Sorry I don't have more pics of everyone there. I really should try to take more pictures of events. I post all the ones that I take, though, and put it in slide show form so you don't have to scroll for a hundred years. And if you don't want to sit and watch the slide show, just left click on the slide show, and it will take you to a new window; you can then click as fast as you want through the pictures. Just so you know.
