Birthday fun, according to Silas

Hi Planet Silas readers. It's me, Silas. Hey, did you hear? I turned 2 years old yesterday. Here I am, enjoying the cupcake mommy made for me. It's the first time I've been allowed to have chocolate, because mom and dad are kind of health freaks. I liked it alright, but I don't have a huge sweet tooth. A few bites and I was pretty much over it. Anyways, I call cupcakes "Happy birthdays" because that's what they're all about. Mom thinks that's pretty cute.

But let's back track and start at the beginning of my day. You probably saw the picture mommy posted yesterday of me with my farmland. Well, here's me when I first discovered it. Mommy and Daddy set it all up after I went to sleep the night before my birthday so that it would be the first thing I saw when I got up in the morning. Wow! It's so cool! I love to move the doors on the barn and say "Open -- shut!" over and over again, just like in the "Wheels on the Bus" song. The play blanket my mommy knit for me is pretty sweet too.
I like to show Daddy all of the animals that live in my barn.

Mommy and Daddy decided that we would have "Silas' favorite things day" for my birthday. That was a good idea. One of my favorite things is getting to have mommy with me, so she stayed home from work. We got our picture taken together. Imagine that!

After playing with my barn and taking pictures with mom, we went to my favorite cafe and hung out with my favorite person, Uncle Patrick.My friends at the cafe gave me strawberries. Yeah, they know what this birthday boy is all about!
Then we went to the open gym at Battle Point Park. I love going to the playground, but it was too wet. That's okay, because toddler open gym is pretty awesome too. Daddy helped me do chin-ups.
And, I climbed a rock wall!

After the gym, we headed back home for lunch and I played with my barn some more. I liked the barn so much, I almost didn't want to take a nap. But I finally did, and by the time I woke up, it was almost time for dinner and "Happy Birthday cupcakes." I didn't have any wild parties this year, unfortunately. But a couple of people did stop by to wish me a happy birthday and eat some cupcakes with us. It was a great day. I can't wait for the next one!
