Happy Birthday, little buddy!

E is two today! Yesterday, I asked him if there was anywhere special he would like to go for his birthday, and he said, "Farm!"

Our park district runs a 1930's dairy farm, and sometimes E and I go there to buy eggs.

His favorite animal at the farm is the chickens!

We watched them for quite awhile.

Still watching chickens.

Watching with Daddy.

For his birthday, E wanted to wear his red socks.  We put one on, and then he saw his orange socks and wanted to wear those too.  So he's wearing two red socks and two orange socks here.

He also liked the sheep and the geese, but the cows were a bit too loud.

We stopped on the way out to check out the giant sunflowers!

At two, E knows all the colors of the rainbow - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.  Red was his favorite for a long time, but orange has been popular lately.  That may be because he likes the orange tomatoes from the garden the most (me too).  He can also get down from his learning tower by himself now.  He knows "one" and "two" very solidly.  And today for the first time, he was interested in the letters on my shirt!  (It happened to say Illinois Engineering...)
