This coming Monday September 19th, our little boy will be turning two. For those people that follow obscure holidays, September 19th is also International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Don’t believe me… check it out yourself www.talklikeapirate.com. I obviously wanted to name our new bundle of joy Captain Walker D. Plank, however, Stephanie convinced me that he might have a tough time finding employment when he grows up.
It’s been the most challenging and rewarding two years of my life. Watching him grow from a newborn who couldn’t hold his own head up, to a little boy who has a mind of his own and will let you know when something isn’t going his way.
He is showing his growing independence with every passing day. Things like telling us what he wants for dinner, what toys he wants to play with, and when he wants to go to bed or take a nap.
We are having a small family get together this weekend to celebrate his birthday and most of Patricks aunts and uncles will be here. Patrick goes nuts when just one person comes to visit, so I’m sure he’ll have a blast with so many people dropping by.
