Barrett Turns 2!!!

Happy Birthday Barrett! We had a great day today, celebrating Bear's birthday. Brooks enjoyed the day as much as Barrett.
We started with a bed balloon party.




Barrett has recently learned how to blow but he can't figure out where to aim his blowing, plus he's a little nervous about the hot flame.
He tried so hard all day when we gave him the opportunity. The harder he tried the tighter he closed his eyes. Finally Brooks helped a brother out.


Birthday Boy ready for school.

He's showing his "2" but can't quite get the #2 finger up. He certainly knows how old he is..."teeuu"

Birthday party at school with his Apple Tree friends. His teachers had hats, balloons, and a banner especially for him!

Prepping his napkin for the cookies we made.






Barrett absolutely loves his teachers. Every day when I pick him up, he routinely hugs each one of them before we leave. They are the sweetest ladies and they take such good care of Bear!

What else is a boy to do on his 2nd birthday...hang out with Hummers! We couldn't pass up the opportunity to check them out on our way to birthday dinner.

Johnny Rockets...best burger in town! Barrett wanted "shrench shries"





A few birthday presents. I'm so glad we weren't shopping for anything specific. Doha isn't the place for specifics.

Thank goodness the birthday boy is easy to please.

And a very loud, crazy, light-up spiderman gun. What was I thinking? I bought 2 spiderman water bottles but so far the gun has cause a bit of tension between 2 boys.

We had a great day with this little birthday bundle of sweetness! We're looking forward to a birthday party and more celebrating next week when Tatty (Nick's mom) comes to visit! Thank you for all the calls and emails!

So sad we weren't there to hug his neck and eat schrench shries or whatever he calls them. Can't believe your baby is two!

Great pics of you all! Sweet little Bear's Bday looked like an awesome day! We love you Barrett!

Oh, Wendi he is so handsome!!! And of course reminds me so much of my Wy, I can just hear him through your words in his pronunciation and they sound just like my man. Looks like you guys had a great day. The real birthday days with just the family are so fun. I love the balloons in the bed - great idea. I really can't believe he is TWO YEARS OLD, seems like just yesterday we were pregers! What happened to our babies!?! Love you - HAPPY BIRTHDAY B!

ahhh.... so sweet!! I use to love me some Johnny Rockets. I wish I could have been there to celebrate his birthday with a chocolate shake. I love all the pictures but my favorite one is Barrett blowing his candles out with his eyes closed so tight. precious!!!
