“Family”

Baby sized scoops of vanilla ice cream and time with grandparents. It's the little things in life that sometimes feel like the big ones!

It's May and I had hoped that the weather would be reasonable for Enoch's birthday party, but no luck! Instead of sunshine, it rained buckets. I had originally planned to have E's party outside at a park (taking the easy route!), but at the last minute we moved the party into the house. It was really fun to gather with family and friends to celebrate Enoch's second birthday! Enoch usually loves to sing happy birthday and blow out candles, but he had some stage fright on his birthday. No worries, Maeve was more than happy to step up and blow out his candles for him.

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'm solidly in the phase of children where the boys are almost always blurry in photos. It would be so nice if they'd pause for half a second longer, but that's not where they're at right now! And I still love their blurry smiles!

Easter part 2 was an Easter egg hunt from Grandma and Grandpa around the house! Kimra had the best idea of one egg color per child. Worked great!

A day or two following Easter, the boys were in the living room and I heard Enoch squeal and yell, "Momma!" clearly distressed. Ira had found a chocolate and happily ate it much to Enoch's dismay. I think E wanted it!
