Bradley Scott Anderson is two years old! I know I still baby him. I can't help it - he is my baby! But he's definitely all grown up. I'm so grateful to Mom who took all these pictures. I didn't take a single shot, so these are extremely valuable to me.
We invited the family over for lunch and games to celebrate Bradley's two years in our family. Dad was able to come from Texas and there were grandparents and great grandparents who sent birthday wishes and gifts from Nevada and other parts of Utah. We had Mom & Jerry, the Coveys, Vineyards, Collin, Carlie & Alex, and Ruby & Ila because they were the only healthy Canlas cousins. Fun group.
Bradley is such a fun person. I am always saying that I can't wait to see what he'll say and do and be when he grows up. He speaks very well, but still uses a lot of gibberish. His voice sounds like a muppet and he always has something to say. It's hilarious because he jibbers and jabbers like he really is saying something and then you'll suddenly recognize a word or two extremely clearly.
He does have several recognizable sentences:
Where'd Nigel go?
Is Daddy working?
Watch a show Mommy?
Don't touch it!
I love you.
Jesus wants me for a sun beep!
Honestly I bet he has at least a hundred of these so I won't list them all here. He's a great talker.
Bradley is always jumping. He is high energy. Intense. He is naturally empathetic. Whenever he sees tears or hears crying he'll say something like, "Oh no! Why the baby so sad?" He's really good at getting people with tickles and kisses. His hair is thin and wispy but on the long side so static electricity does wonders for all of our entertainment. He loves sensorial experiences. He loves to have lots of people around. He loves to pick Nigel up from school, or anywhere. He loves it when Nigel or Micah come home. He sleeps in a toddler bed, and made the transition extremely quickly and just like a champ. He loves to be read to while cuddling. He is extremely social and seems to think the more the merrier. He loves anything that goes: trains, plains, and automobiles. He loves anything that Nigel does. He is insane! He's just always on the go with so much enthusiasm. He's extremely sensitive to sugar and I sometimes want to give him a treat just to watch him go a little crazy before the crash. He loves anything that Nigel loves. He loves doing things with his eyes closed.
Bradley is a joy to have in our family. I'm so glad he still likes to cuddle with me.
Everybody loves Bradley!!!
