Jonas is Two: Birthday

Jonas is TWO!
Measuring at about 29 lbs. and 35.5 in.

Time has flown by with this cutie. Our boy is two and we have loved watching him grow. At the young age of two we have watched Jonas grow into such a complex human; it's so amazing how much he has learned and developed in two short years. 

Jonas is a sweet, sensitive, and silly boy.
Jonas is still a momma's boy, but when he wants good entertainment he goes straight to daddy. He's also grown quite attached to his Aunt Britt.
Jonas is a champ sleeper. We feel so blessed after struggling with him for so long that he sleeps so well. Most nights he gets about 12 hours of sleep in his bed, which we changed his crib into a toddler bed about five months ago. He also naps in the afternoon for about 2-2.5 hours, this pregnant mom couldn't be happier! 
We successfully got Jonas OFF his binky, which he was overly attached to for so long. The last day he saw his binky was March 1st, and it was actually pretty painless to stop using.
Jonas is still behind in his language development, but he has been learning new words. He loves to tell me when he needs his shoes then tells me "bye" and tries to escape. Otherwise he is ahead in development, always trying to keep up with the neighborhood kids!

His favorites:
Shows: Curious George; sometimes Little Einsteins, Daniel the Tiger or Clifford
Movies: Curious George movies and Minions; sometimes other fun animal movies like Land Before Time, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and Zootopia
Stuffed animals: "Friend" the Snow Leopard Aunt Paige gave Jonas for his first birthday; he keeps a total of six favorites in his bed: "Friend", a puppy, Dumbo, Curious George (see an obsession?), Easter bunny, and Kaloo bear
Books: no particular favorite, but he loves animal and Dr. Suess books
Activities: Tickling, getting chased around the house, pretend time, "cooking", crafts (coloring and play-doh), and telling us what to do-he can be bossy sometimes!
Toys: Tools, coloring (sometimes on my walls and furniture), balls, bikes/ride-along toys, making random objects into guns or swords

Jonas is such a fun boy, and we had a lot of fun celebrating his birthday with family!

Jonas woke up to find my family was visiting! He was a little shy at first, but quickly warmed up. We had such a great birthday weekend, especially since JT was also able to take a three-day weekend. We started his birthday with Curious George, a crepe breakfast, presents, playing with presents, lunch, Farmers Market and cake. On Saturday he got to hang out even more with family then enjoy his fun party at the park. I was not good at all at getting pictures, so here are a few I stole from others.

This boy was SO excited for all his toys, but I think the tricycle put him over the edge.  This was also the first time he was actually opening his gifts on his own, it took awhile but it was lots of fun to watch!

Gifts from Mom & Dad, Grandparents, and the Pearson's (JT's older sister), he opened the rest of his awesome gifts at his party.

My mom made Jonas this amazing Curious George quilt. Jonas is in love. The back has a panel of George, he loves to say hi and cuddle with him.

Lunch at Wingers, obvious choice because Jonas loves eating the free popcorn.

Since family was visiting for the weekend we also squeezed in some fun activities, JT took the boys shooting and the girls went shopping.
