This is the day of his birthday party. We had a monkey theme and had the party at our church. Here is Uncle Eric letting Taegan make a basket!
I bought his second birthday party supplies before he was even 8 months old. I saw them online and fell in love with them. We call him our "monkey" and these were perfect!!! Here was his cake.
We also had Patti, the balloon lady, come and make balloon animals for all the kids. She is a professional clown and did a fantastic job!! She also does face painting and plays games with the kids!
After the party we came back to our house and my parents and Uncle Eric and Aunt Tiya gave him this John Deere ride-on toy. It is battery powered and he LOVES that he can go anywhere he wants!!
Tuesday, May 25th, was his actual birthday. We had a relaxing morning, if you can't tell. He and Lily made a "bed" for him to watch TV in out of my laundry basket. I guess it at least gives me a excuse for not doing laundry that day!! =)
Before heading to lunch we went to SportClips and tried round 2 on getting our hair cut. It did go better than the first time, but still not great. He cried the whole time and REALLY hated the clippers, but we got through it and here is the end result. I love it and it is so cute on him. Although it does make him look a little too old for this mommy's liking.
That evening we went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa. Taegan had a couple more gifts to open. Here is his baseball glove and ball from Aunt Jenn, Uncle Brian and Elsie.
When the waiter at Chili's saw him opening gifts, she asked if it was his birthday. We said yes, so the next thing you know, we have lots of waiters singing "Happy Birthday" to him. He was most impressed with the cake. Look at that look on his face!!
When we got home we gave Taegan his gifts from us. Here he is with his new baseball tee, bat and ball. He loves anything to do with balls if you couldn't tell.
