Last week was Atty's birthday, so we gathered our families to celebrate. When asked how old he is, Atticus would respond with two, and then immediately ask about birthday cake. The day before, the day of, the day after, even today, he still talks about birthday cake.
Atty received a duplo table and duplos from his grandparents. As soon as he opened them, he couldn't be torn away. All he wanted to do was build.
Baxter, on the other hand, was more interested in the box that the table came in. He's currently in a phase where he likes to hide all of the time.
But the thing that trumped it all was Eric's gift. He built a table with an amplifier and speakers so Atty could use music mixing apps on our iPad. Everything is built right into the table. It's been the only thing the boys want to do if we're inside. Thankfully, the iPad is removable so it makes it pretty easy to limit how much they're on it. I think he has won the coolest dad award, hands down.
