JD's Birthday!!!

It’s hard for me to believe but yes JD is officially Two Years Old! May 18th is his date of birth but since it was on a Wednesday this year we had his birthday party on Sat May 21. The fun part is that May 21 happens to be my Dad’s birthday. So When making cupcakes for JD I made my Dad’s cake. For as long as I can remember Dad’s cake has been lemon with chocolate icing. One time I was so excited for his cake I keep yelling,” Cut the cake, cut the cake, cut the cake.” Then Dad did the most surprising thing. He chopped it in half with is hand. Cake chunks went flying everywhere. We were all busted up in laughter.
Back to JD’s day. We had it at my parents house and yes it was of course Spider-Man themed! I wasn’t expecting quite so many people. It was a little crowded but so nice to have everyone there. JD at first loved being the center of attention. He blew one of the candles out right away but took a few tries for the second. Grandma helped with that. Then it was present time. JD didn’t get that he had more then one present. After opening one he wanted to play with That toy. It was the only time all day he threw a fit. So hard to be so little and have so many new toys at once. The one toy that he had to have right away was a new bike that looked like a motorcycle! I had to force him off it to open the rest of his gifts. In all I want to thank everyone who came and it was an amazing day! I love JD so much and yes he is growing up to fast!

“Spider-JD, Spider-JD, Does what-ever a Spider can….” Not really but he sure thinks he can. Many may know how Spider-Man came to be but here’s the story of Spider-JD . JD started off the typical little boy. Running here and there, all around the house saying “catch me if you can..” Wait wrong story that’s frosty the snow man. Where was I oh yes Spider-JD. It really started for him before birth. Un-be-known to him, his father grew up loving Spider-Man. Still has a rather large collection of his comics to this day. So before JD could even say Spider-Man he was forced into the Spidey world. Naturally like his father he soon learned the joy of Spider-man!
Now JD needed “muscles” to fill out his outfit. The fastest way to build muscle was to walk the mean looking, giant of a beast by the name of Huck! Not really. Huck is a family friends dog who is the biggest softy ever. The gentle giant as he’s known. This picture was just to cute not to share.
Once JD fit into the costume the real struggle was getting him out. Now it’s not only getting him out but hiding it so he doesn’t wear it all the time. Oh and last little Spider-JD note once he’s in the outfit all he wants to hear is the spider man song over, and over. So if ever you find your way in a sticky spot,” Watch out! Here comes the Spider-JD”
