We had James's 2nd b-day party this weekend. It was a Ratatouille-themed party (James's favorite movie) and we had a great time!
Here are some of my favorite pics from the party:
Here is a slideshow of some of the other pics from the party (and his actual birthday day):

|James 2nd Birthday|
James wasn't terribly excited about opening his presents, but he did love what was in them (he had some help from his friend Henry opening them). He got a Mickey Mouse camp set, a new Library play house made by his grandma, me and his great-aunt Diane, a pillow pet, a Mr. Potato Head playset, a shake n' go Lightning McQueen, some wonderful new books (he really likes Drummer Hoff), and many other wonderful gifts.
While playing with the playhouse, he stuck his head out the window of the library and said "hi" to our friend Jenny! I didn't hear it, but others did and said he did it twice. That's the first time he's said it that we are sure of! He's also been saying what I think is "owl," and he's been using a ton of sign language recently since we started focusing on the DVDs again.
Also, today when we were playing with his new Mickey Mouse playset, he opened the door to the fridge (which has a sticker with pics of food on it) and had Pluto go over to it and then made munching sounds that he makes while he is eating. It's the first time I've seen him do any kind of pretend play besides making his cars drive around the room!
Anyway, the party was a success and James had a blast running around with his cousins and his friend Henry. He smiled so much and looked so happy, and he even recognized Gusteau on the poster and Remy the mouse. He kept squeaking like a mouse when he saw them different places, it was so sweet. :-) Love that little 2-year-old boy! <3
