Yesterday was The Boy’s second birthday. Happy birthday, kiddo!
Enjoying his new tricycle:
We went with a classic red Radio Flyer trike. Who says the Ortizes don’t have style?
He likes it, anyhow.
We also spent some time at the beach:
Friends from Hope came and helped us celebrate his big day, complete with a picnic lunch and brownie birthday cake.
Presents were opened throughout the day, whenever we could get various family members on Skype or Google Chat. All lovely gifts, but my personal favorite (as in, “ha, ha, that’s so funny”) birthday gift was the cookie jar, complete with cookies, from Grandma. Because she knows she can spoil him from 2,400 miles away.
Another highlight was the video from his American and Swedish-American godparents, of their kids singing the Swedish version of “Happy Birthday.” Pretty cute.
And now we have a two-year-old. Officially.
