Soon He'll be TWO!

Jason will be two in less than two months.  How in the world did that happen?  It seems just yesterday he was born, a brand-new baby boy.

Jason wants macaroni for lunch
And then just as quick as that we were celebrating his 1st birthday party.  Since he's a little monkey, his mommy used a monkey theme for that party.  There was even a banana cake!

Jason, of course, won't remember a thing about that party, but it was fun for his mommy to plan.  I'm sure that's why there are so many different options for first birthday party themes - from the monkey themes for little monkeys like our Jason to a Disney Princess theme for your little princess.  They're just all so cute - turtles, bears, Sesame Street babies, and Pooh & Friends.  How do parents even begin to choose?  I guess that's why kids have a birthday every year!  Or something like that.  There are over 30 themes on this one website alone! (as well as some helpful party tips)

My poor kids were very deprived and never actually had birthday parties, except for Beth's 6th birthday.  We didn't have any fancy themed party - just a homemade 'carnival' in a tent in the backyard.  I don't know that she would have been a Disney Princess kind of girl anyway...  We did usually go to Olive Garden, have a family dinner, and get the wait staff to bring out a cake and sing for the birthday kid.  Jason got that, too.

I wonder what kind of party this little cutie pie would like for his second birthday?  I mean, if he's gonna insist on growing up and turning two.
