And while we had a family-focused birthday celebration—instead of a big blow-out bash with all of his daycare peeps—he definitely had some little kid epiphany that somehow, magically, one day can be devoted to you and you alone.
Ian, CC and I had wrapped all of his presents in Elmo and Thomas the Tank Engine wrapping paper. Those are by far his two favorite characters in the world. When we unveiled his Thomas the Tank Engine birthday cake, he got even more excited.
"My Thomas! My Thomas!" he shouted.

There we saw gray seals, goats (an L.A. Story fave!), lions and gorillas. It was a full day, and by the end we were exhausted, but our little boy had an unforgettable day -- well, as unforgettable as it can be for a 2-year-old.
Happy birthday, Will! I love you!
