How Did This Happen?????

 I really must know and I need to know now!

How did this baby?

8lbs 2oz and 21 3/4 inches
Go to this at 10 months?
Then proceed on to walking and a mouth full of teeth?
Grow an amazing amount of totally awesome red hair?
And learn how to "cheese" for the camera?

I think it's safe to say that my "baby" has become a boy. 

As of 10:56am today Clayton will be 2 years old.  That's the absolute most insane thing ever.  I'm not one of those moms that want their babies to stay babies forever.  I love the boyhood we've quite quickly developed.  Clayton amazes me every day.  

We only have two more milestones to accomplish to completely leave baby land.  Clayton will graduate to his new Sunday School class the first Sunday in March.  He's just waiting on his precious Natalie to turn 2 as well.  For ya'll that don't know us in the real world, Natalie and Clayton are only 2 weeks apart in age and he is seriously smitten with her.  She doesn't give him the time of day but he follows her like a little lost puppy.  He's got some major googley eyes.  And the last thing on the "Bye Bye Baby" agenda is potty training.  He's started but that's a process and I'm not gonna rush it.

Happy Birthday Clayton/Bubba/Claycakes/Claystone/Claybob/Doodle/Clayt(that's what he calls himself)!

Love, 
Mommy
