Oh my heart, my little man, Enoch, is two years old! And oh how I love him! Enoch is an amazing child. He's so intelligent and he's a hard worker. He loves his siblings, especially Ira. Enoch loves Conor and I, although if Dad isn't working, that's who Enoch wants! Every afternoon, Enoch walks laughing through the dining room to Conor's office. He knows how much we delight in him! Enoch is crazy about trucks! Conor cut his hair the night before his birthday and came up with a great idea to keep him still. Enoch doesn't watch tv or shows, but Conor put a compilation of videos of trucks on for Enoch and he was so into it! Easiest haircut ever! I love the feeling of Enoch's arms draped across my shoulders and his body relaxed into me. Enoch really likes books and my heart bursts every time he backs his little booty onto my lap. One day last week, Enoch was looking for his truck book. He had just had it 30 minutes sooner and I couldn't find it! Later, when I opened the fridge it fell onto the floor!

We gave Enoch a water table for his birthday and the kids loved playing with it without water. I think he's going to like it even more when it has water in it. I also gave him two board books, each individually wrapped. He held one for himself and offered Ira the second. This is just a small example of what kind of heart Enoch has. I love my boy with all my heart!

I felt very loved by friends and family on my birthday. Here's a picture of me with all my babies about to dig into my favorite chocolate cake.

I love carousels and I especially love my babies on carousels. We made a quick trip downtown to put Ira on the carousel for his birthday and it was everything I hoped it would be!

Finally! Maeve wore her birthday dress! I think it's adorable and I think she likes it too.

My baby girl is FIVE years old! It's so hard to believe. She's always gonna be my little girl I think. For her birthday, Maeve was convinced we'd have snow so she wanted to go sledding, skiing and ice skating and then drink hot chocolate. And while it snowed the morning of her birthday (magical btw), it wasn't enough to sled or ski. Conor took Maeve ice skating just the two of them in the afternoon. Maeve was thrilled with every part of her birthday. We gave her a mermaid palace toy she has been pining for. She saw it in a catalogue and has spent hours looking at the picture. Nana and Papa JJ gave her some cute outfits and Maeve wears the sweater around the clock, to bed, the whole deal. I need to wash it. Maeve wanted a chocolate cake with pink icing. Done and done girlfriend.

The day this girl was born, the world became a better place. She's so delightful. And I'm so honored to be her mom!
