Happy Birthday Knittybaby!!

Are you all ready for this? My baby turns two, yes TWO today!!!

Picture 008

I’m constantly amazed lately that this tiny little boy is now really, truly a little boy. A little boy who can climb, jump, wrestle, dance, talk, sing, color, and even sass his mama or give his big brother a smack. He is an amazing blessing, and is truly the most joyful, happy little person to be around.

I love this age, despite the “It’s mine!” and the “I want that!” that I hear twenty times a day, there is something very special about this transition to two. It’s that absolute cuteness in everything they say, or try to say; that realization that they can really communicate with you, even when you can’t always figure out what they are saying. (“Cresens, cresens, I want cresens!!!!” Lord, I wish I knew what that meant.) The things they say are so, so funny and so incredibly sweet. I wish I could hold on to these first sentences forever.

This birthday of course, this little baby turning into a little boy right before my eyes, brings into question the longevity of his nickname. When he was born he was this tiny little guy who would of course, be a baby forever, right? If I was Knittymama, well, he should be Knittybaby, it just fit. But now I’m wondering how much longer until it’s time to move him up to a more “big boy” nickname, but I just can’t think of one that seems to fit him perfectly. Any ideas?

This birthday also opens up contest time here at Knittymama. We’ve got four birthdays coming up in the next four weeks, so it’s time to celebrate!!! I’ll announce the contest on Monday sometime. I’ll also have another big surprise coming midweek.

For everyone that is celebrating Easter this weekend, I hope it is a blessed and happy one for you and that it truly feels like spring. Personally, I’m just hoping that we’re not going to an Easter egg hunt on Saturday in 6 inches of snow. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

  1. Happy Birthday Knittybaby!! (How about just moving on up to Knittyboy? I think Little Man and Knittyboy sound cute together, like Batman and Robin!)

    Habby Birthday Knittybaby!!! MAny happy returns of the day!

  3. I really like the dynamic duo sound of Catherine’s suggestion.

    How about Mini-Knitty? He is the smallest of the Knitty family.

    Sounds like Knittysonshine to me!

    He sounds delightful. Let me have an oldtimers moment and just say, those days flew away from me. Eleven and Fifteen. I once was you!!! (sniff!)

  5. Knittyboy sounds good to me, too. Happy birthday, Knittybaby!

    Hmmm… raisins? Craisins?

  6. Happy birthday, Knittybaby!

    How about Knittykid? I like the alliteration in that one.

  7. Happy Birthday, Knittybaby! You’re not a baby anymore – you’re just a boy now. I think Knittyboy fits you better now.

    We’ve got a bunch of birthday on the horizon, too. Oldest Boy turns 14 the first week of April and I turn 43 three days later.

  8. Happy Birthday, Knittybaby! Funny, I was thinking raisins, too.

  9. Happy Birthday to you knittybaby! He’s getting so big!

  10. I think you underestimate that potential fun in searching for eggs in snow. Having done it throughout my youth, the easter dress and snow boots with snowpants looks super stylish.

  12. Happy Birthday, Knittybaby!

    how about knittykid?

  14. Happy Birthday knittybaby! Love those socks! πŸ™‚

    Cresens….like someone else’s comment, I also thought Craisins too hehehe I also thought crayons for some reason. Now you’ve got me curious what “cresens” are.

    Wishing you and the fam a wonderful weekend.

  15. Love the socks on the big boy

    Happy Birthday Knittybaby!
    My son just turned 6 on the 21st as well. Seems like just yesterday he was 2. It goes by SOOO fast. Don’t blink!

  17. Happy Birthday Knittybaby! And a happy day to the Knittyparents too. Two is a cute age – what am I saying, so far all the ages have been cute! I think Knittyboy sounds a lovely name to move into.

  18. Happy Birthday Knittybaby! (And best wishes to KnittyFamily, too!) My littlest is about to turn three in a few days. Gotta just take it all in when they’re little like this – it goes by so fast. Have a good rest of the weekend!

  19. Happy Birthday Knittybaby!

  20. Happiest of birthdays, KnittyBaby!!! However did you get so big so fast???

  21. Megan

    Oh well, I guess my vote is for knittyboy or sweet boy or cute boy or joyful boy. He IS so special and so big. It’s still weird to me to hear him talking – how long will it take for me to get used to it I wonder? It’s too cute! Mommmmmeeeeeee!

  22. What wonderful socks on your knittyboy! Two is fun.

  23. Happy birthday to Knitty Baby! I second Catherine’s suggestion.

  24. Happy Belated Birthday to Knitty Baby!!!
