Happy Birthday Jansen!

Well Jansen turned 2 last Sunday. This must be my year of guilt because we didn't do much and of course I'm the one who felt bad. I really thought if I made him a "cool" cake then I would still be a good mom... but when it came down to it, I just didn't think I had enough energy to do even that. So while we were grocery shopping, I asked Jake if we could go over to the toys and just find something to PUT on his cake.
Jake let Jansen pick out some dinosaurs, and 3 dollars later, we had a happy birthday cake!
I know these pictures don't show it, but Jansen was ecstatic! He had the biggest smile when he saw his cake, and played with the dinosaurs all night. It was really cute.We also got him this letter factory fridge set that makes the letters talk... maybe it will inspire Jansen to say a few things.
He also got a "Billy train" and a recorder, anything to make this kid louder, right?AND he's me trying to over stimulate Mitchell on a light mat.
Mitchell still has his monitor, and although we've been using it less during the day, he turned blue TWICE yesterday, so we've decided to use it 24/7 again to let us know sooner that he's not feeling well...
Physical Therapy comes this Tuesday to work on his arms, neck, and vision. I'm hoping he'll start sleeping longer than 2-3 hours at night now that he's 3 months!!! Time goes so quickly I can't believe we've had him so long. I feel so lucky!
