Little Elvis is officially a big two year old! He's grown so much! He's accomplished so much! This is the first picture we took of our little angel. He was 7 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches of pure wonderfulness.
This is our sweet boy at one year... shortly after helping Mommy and Daddy vote in the presidential primaries. Look at that head!
Here he is today! Look at that hair! The hair growth isn't the only big change this year. He's much more sure of himself. Much more curious about everything. Much more determined to get his way. And, hard to believe, but he is also much sweeter.

He loves to hug and kiss Mommy, Daddy, and his cars and trucks. He loves to watch "Finding Nemo," and demands that we put it on whenever he walks past the TV. (We aim for one viewing before bedtime, but he lets it be known that all day, every day would be preferable.)
He loves to call Daddy and Lightning McQueen with his special Cars cell phone.
He loves fruit snacks, juice, milk, smoothies, yogurt, PB&J, mac and cheese, eggs, hot dogs, most of the samples at Sam's, and last week he loved quiche.
This week he loves tunnels. Although, he still prefers to run around the perimeter of parks and explore.
His love of cars continues, and has expanded since we gave him a 6-pack of cool Tonka trucks for his birthday.
He's not too into sharing his own toys, but doesn't seem to mind if someone takes a toy that isn't his away.
He likes several letters and numbers, colors and balloons.
He likes standing up on his step stool and using the big boy potty -- he's already gone once this morning!
Little Elvis never ceases to amaze me. I haven't been feeling well this week. On Monday, he kissed my forehead while I sat by him on the floor. Then, he rubbed my back while we both stared at the toilet together. He even made his rubber ducky dance on the edge to entertain me.
Words cannot express our love for this amazing little angel. These past two years have been wonderful.
Happy 2nd birthday Little Elvis. We love you so much!!

Happy Birthday Little Elvis! It's so amazing to see how our little ones grow in the second year. Yay for going potty!! Svara went voluntarily the other day for the first time. Slowly but surely!
