A little over one week ago, our youngest child turned two. I can hardly believe it. How can he be two already? It seems like I was just bemoaning Mabrey’s 2nd birthday, and now she is five. Time goes by much too quickly in my opinion.
Moses is super sweet, and is into everything! He wants to see how everything works. He definitely keeps me on my toes. Knowing that this might be the last 2nd birthday we celebrate has been bittersweet. I am 41-years-old, and he could be our last little one.
I shared a video on YouTube about his special day, if you’d like to check it out below:
I wanted to make the day special for him, and still keep a pretty low budget. Birthday parties around here are small family affairs, so I don’t have to worry about large food costs. I kept it at a small homemade cake, and that was good enough for him!
Moses really likes farms and tractors, so I was very excited to find the farm birthday decor at Hobby Lobby on clearance! If you are looking for this type of decor, I suggest that you head there now to see if any more is in stock. My children really enjoyed the bright and fun party theme.
One thing I was not impressed with was the cost of the helium tank. It was $28, up from $22, at Walmart. Next time I will try to use painters tape on my walls with a balloon banner. This would be much more economical!
We are settling into his new age, but my mama heart is still just a little sad. Being a mother is the most special and amazing thing to me. It is hard to let each stage go, but at the same time, I’m so grateful to God that he is growing well. After all, it is His plan for him to grow older. I’m definitely trying to soak in every moment, though.
There are so many other exciting events to plan on the horizon. Thanksgiving should be very nice, and Hanukkah is just a few days after that. I almost have all of my plans in place, which I hope to share with you soon. I hope to create God-centered celebrations that my whole family will enjoy.
I hope you are enjoying your week with your families, ladies. God bless!
Behold, children are a heritage of Adonai —the fruit of the womb is a reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they speak with their enemies at the gate.
Psalms 127:3-5 TLV
(Also, if you prayed for my daughter yesterday, thank you so much! The best possible outcome happened, and I am so thankful. Praise God!)
