Not So Terrible Two: Henry’s 2nd Birthday

I was there to celebrate Henry’s 1st birthday last September, and suddenly, there I was when he turned two years old. My boss, Nicole (Henry’s mom), didn’t plan a huge event, but she and her husband nonetheless wanted to make sure Henry knew how special that day was. After work, I scooted to their house for a late afternoon session, and their place was decorated with streamers and balloons. Gifts in bright wrap as well as brown boxes sent from across the miles, sat on the living room tabletop. Henry got a sandbox from his mom and dad and I will never forget his face when he walked into the patio. His Nana (Nicole’s mom) was visiting from Pennsylvania for the weekend and, through the magic of technology, Grammy and Pop were just a skype session away.

He’s such a ball of energy and it’s so fun being able to see him grow up.
