Nik is TWO!

Modeling poses that he chose "one more picture, mom"

Here he is sitting on the toilet, probably spends about 3 hours on the thing playing with his toys (holding Skipit the dog for this photo).
Battery run train that lasted about an hour before Nik broke it, it was one of his birthday presents.
His favorite new activity clinking glasses together and saying "Cheers" anytime he drinks anything. He mostly drinks water but if he sees you drinking something else he wants to trade glasses (beer, wine or sodas) and then he always nods his head in a Yes direction as if to say "yum".
Still enjoying his meat, he had some pork chop and chicken for a birthday dinner.
Helping mom bake the birthday cake, his favorite part licking the spoon, just like mom!
Getting ready to blow out the candles,
Happy Birthday NIK!

Nik turned 2 today, what to say about him? He is the apple of my eye, even when he is giving us a hard time he still makes me laugh. He will either grow up to be a soccer player or an actor/model, he over reacts to the smallest thing just like a soccer player rolling on the ground going oww! and then the next minute he's up and running after the ball. Nik will do the same thing, sudden frown and tears and then smiling and laughing. He is my theater mask (smiling/frowning face) so versatile so active.

Finally some snow

Nik getting ready to go out in the snow, first snow of the year. He is wearing long johns and boots from Grandma Peters, he was having fun posing for these pictures and kept insisting on one more.
Look new hair cut and finally no morning sickness.
I actually got a little smile out of him.
I still have roses in my garden I think they will finally die now with the snow.
Nik throwing snow balls at the older boys, he loves the snow.
Victor with Nik
Athanasios, Victor holding Nik, Kostas and Demitris (big boys from the neighborhood). It snowed on a Saturday, perfect for kids to play outside but Greek mothers are very protective and 3 of them were on thier verandas yelling at the kids to come in that it was to cold.
