Revving up for the twos!

Tuesday, March 20, 2018


Our lil’ bookend boy had a big weekend and rang in the “terrible twos” with family and out of town grandparents who came to visit and celebrate the birthday boy!

Get your party on with customizable banners from She and Co. 

Although Eden was born on the other side of the globe and has lived over half of his life in Asia, our “fairest of them all,” all-American boy has quickly adapted life in the USA and loves trucks, tractors, fast cars and everything with wheels (and minions and cheezits and shoes and soccer among other things!)


His “dump truck” inspired party was executed by big sisters Abi and Britain who pretty much singlehandedly pinned, planned and prepared the celebration for our little guy.  Its been a long time since we’ve had a birthday party that didn’t revolve around “pink” and “princesses”!!  Super fun to be “doing” a little boy again!!


Way to go Britain!  You nailed it!

Eden, you have brought so much joy to this family and give us reasons to laugh every day!  You live up to your name meaning…”pleasant”, “delight”, “perfection”.  We’re so glad God saw fit to give us YOU!

-You’re all boy and we all get a giggle because you get this mischievous smile of satisfaction and say “beeeep” every time you have gas or burp!
-You are potty training yourself.  (maybe before mommy is ready!)
-Your favorite thing to do is bring your book bin into bed on Saturday mornings and read together!
-You’ve been our slowest to wean and still love nursing to sleep at bedtime and nap time.
-You totally dont sleep through the night because you’d rather come to our bed and snuggle…and thats ok!
-Daddy has a big soft spot for you.  And your long hair matches daddy’s!  (and you may have some OCD tendencies just like daddy too!)
-Your matchbox car collection (that used to be Tristan’s) entertains you for hours!  Your favorite thing to do is play “crash” and shove them as fast as you can across the big coffee table glass top into each other!
-You insist on having socks on and blanket off when you sleep!
-Your stuffed minion “Lala” is your lovey.
-Tristan is your favorite person in the world.  Whenever he finishes school each day, you take him by the hand and beg him to take you outside to kick the soccer ball around.  (I think he kinda likes you too)!
-Your soccer skills are ridiculous for a 2 year old!  (child-prodigy in the making!)
