Vincent is 2!

I still can't believe I have a two-year-old!!  Where did the time go?  Everyone always used to say to me, "wait until you have kids, time flies," and I never really believed them.  Now that I'm living it, sometimes I wish I could just stop time.  Granted, they are not during the tantrums or fits, but every minute with this kid is a blessing and I'm so thankful to be his mommy.  

Vincent is a huge Elmo fan, so we celebrated his birthday the best way we knew how, with a visit to Elmo and an Elmo-themed celebration!  My brother and his wife and my cute, sweet nephew came in from Austin for the weekend.  It was so great to see and catch up with them.  My aunt and uncle also joined us from Orlando.  It was a small family gathering, but Vincent still felt special and had a blast!

We surprised Vincent with a tee-pee from tnees teepess, and he loved it!! We had it set up the night before with a special Elmo balloon and he ran to it first thing in the morning.  He is still playing in it.  The quality is great, I would highly recommend this brand to anyone looking for a tee-pee. 

We took him to Busch Gardens with Mike's family that was visiting.  What's better than being able to give Elmo a huge hug on your 2nd birthday?  Nothing - he seriously loves him so much!!

I made this collage of all of my favorite pics from Vincent's second year.  It made me emotional, I am so glad that I have all of these memories.  I feel like he grew so much over the last year, thanks Pinterest for the idea!

Amazing cake from our local bakery, I would highly recommend Bakery Melange

Tons of toys, Vincent and his cousin had the most fun in the box!

This is how you eat your birthday cake (cookie) when you turn 2!

My dad got this great shot of my family.  Everyone is actually looking at the camera, and smiling!! Amazing memory and our little man had a great day!

Bump Update
I had my 16 week check-up the week of Vincent's birthday.  Everything looks perfect!  I can't wait until my next appointment when we will get to see Baby Flo #2 again.
Vincent's first appearance in the bump pic :) you can tell he was thrilled

Feeling the baby move this week - best feeling in the world!
