The Friday Five

Here's what I'm loving this week:

1. E Turned Two!
E turned two on Monday. We celebrated by going to the park in the morning, swimming at our friend's house in the afternoon and going to a BBQ at Uncle O'Malley's house that evening. We're having his birthday party this weekend. It's unreal I have a two year old, time is going by so fast. Here's E at two years old:
  • Weighs 32.6lbs
  • Height is 2ft. 11.5 inches
  • Wears 2T and 3T clothes
  • Slight interest in potty training. He has a potty seat and likes to sit on it and flush but no actual potty in the potty. I bought him some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse underwear and we'll see if that helps the process.
  • Out of the crib for both naps and night time sleeping now.
  • Loves all things construction, playing in water, and being outside.
Happy Birthday Evan Michael! 
Mommy loves you to the moon and back.

2. Lots of BBQs
This weekend was Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer. We had three BBQs this past weekend and it was great being out and about with friends. I look forward to more this summer.

3. Homemade Iced Coffee
I'm loving my homemade iced coffee this summer. I brew Dunkin' Doughnuts coconut coffee really strong by doubling the recommended amount of grounds. I put it in the fridge overnight and then the next day it's ready. I poor it over ice and add a splash of DD creamer. Delicious and addictive!

We are always looking for family friendly places to go and this coffeehouse has been on our list to try. There is a big playroom for kids and the coffee was great. We spent the morning drinking coffee, eating scones and E played in the playroom. It's a pretty popular place, lots of parents and kids were coming in and out. It's a little out of the way from our house but I would definitely like to go back.

E really enjoyed this piano.

5. Sibling Love
I'm so amazed at how well E has adjusted to Cora. He tries to be gentle with her and has shown very few signs of jealousy. He gets protective of his blanket and some of his books, other than that, it's all love.

Cora really does love her big brother,
