What A Week


Is it Friday already?

What a week!

My baby's not a baby anymore. Yesterday(4/2) was his 2nd birthday. It was an awesome day. We had amazing weather so that just topped the cake. He LOVES going outside and just running around and playing on the swingset.

The missus and I spent the better part of the week trying to think of what could possibly be his favorite meal for dinner. We decided that since EVERYBODY in our house loves ham, it would be an appropriate choice. He had 2 helpings and didn't hide any of it in his high chair. This kid is a master at hiding food he doesn't want to eat. We've seen him shove food into his cup holder, put his cup in it, and as the cup wobbles precariously high to the ridge shout "ALL DOOONE".

I picked up some chocolate(his favorite) cupcakes at the store for dessert(I'm making a cake for his party on Saturday so it's not as if he's being gipped or anything). He tried to blow out his candle and came really close once. I kinda had to help him when he got dangerously close to the flame. The cupcakes were delicious, just ask the dog(hopefully he waits to make the mess that I know is coming until he gets outside, he also ate Play Doh this afternoon...ugh).

We also had our first playdate with the boy from acroos the street. He's 4 months younger than the 2 year old and they got along great. I was really hoping they would because lets, face it, having an adult conversation during the day, even just once a week, would be great. It was, and we now have a weekly playdate. Yay for all four of us!

What a week. Our jetlag and sinus infections have passed(not a major milestone, granted, but something we wanted to get through with none the less). We had our first playdate. And we had a birthday. What a week...

LOL (at hiding the food). Peanut doesn't even bother with trying to pull one over on us...she just throws it on the floor. :)

Yay for a weekly playdate. I'm hoping to find one of these soon.

Sending birthday wishes to your son...and Happy FF!

Happy Birthday to your son! My daughter is 2 1/2, and still refers to herself as 'Baby'. She doesn't bother hiding food, she just doesn't eat! ;)

Happy FF!

Happy Birthday to your son!

Our 3 year old never hid food - no, she demanded it. Still does, actually. Could be chewing the last bite of dinner and telling us she's starving with the same breath.

Happy FF! (and here's to hoping the dog keeps it's messes outside!)

Happy Birthday to the little man.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I think he had a pretty good day :D

@Andrew's Daddies- LOL, yeah, I'm baking his cake and decorating it too. I also made cinnamon rolls for his playdate on Wednesday. What does that get me? ;)

@Bella Daddy- They sure are :D

@MHD- We hit Chuck E Cheese last Wednesday while we were in California.

@Isabella- just wait, she's only one. They get more creative as they get older :P

@Lauren- my boys barely eat what they are given, much less ask for more.

happy birthday. Its funny, my older munchkins still hides his food, but its not so much the food, its the candy wrapers behind his bed. When does it end?

Rob said...

Happy Birthday! I am also glad you found yourself a playdate. LOL

Happy Birthday!

I love play dates and how they kids interact with each other at younger ages. Plus the sanity that comes with having a bond with another adult from a different family is awesome.

Happy FF!

Happy FF and Happy Birthday to your son! Good to hear you are starting to do the play date thing. My kids are older, but play dates with other Dads and their kids have been and continue to be an important part of our time together because they keep all of us sane.
