Ephraim Turns Two

This week has been really great. Yesterday, our baby turned TWO! I'm not really sure how this can be, but I am excited to have a two-year-old again. Though Ephraim is able to say quite a bit, it will be nice to hear him start to speak in sentences and really be able to express his thoughts and feelings! I will miss the cuddly baby stages, and goodness will I miss his chubby cheeks and juicy legs when they slim down!

Our week started off with a trip to our closest big shopping town. It was kind of last-minute, but when you find a day in January that is supposed to be 40 and sunny, you take that drive! :)

We made it to Home Goods and Target, with lunch at Chick-Fil-A. Though I could have stayed and shopped all day at the many other stores, it was time for E to head home and nap in the car.

I snapped a couple of photos of Ephraim to use for his party :)

At the beginning of the week, I caught a glimpse in the mirror of how long my hair was in the back, and I knew I had to schedule a cut asap. It was getting close to touching my jeans! My new friend and hairstylist Carrianne fit me in yesterday, and she made my hair look so much healthier at the ends (and she even curled it for me!) 

While Ephraim was watching Daniel Tiger yesterday morning, we surprised him with a birthday present--five little Daniel Tiger figurines! He loved them! (And tried to carry them all at once by hoarding them under his chin :)

The four of us went out for birthday donuts, and MorMor joined us too!


Ephraim slept away most of the afternoon, and then we went on a big grocery trip to Walmart. When we got home, he opened his other present, which was a track for the boys' Chuggington trains. We found it on serious markdown at Home Goods on Monday--only $5!

Nolan went to bed scheming how he is going to get out of bed at some terribly early hour so he can sneak downstairs and play with the track before E wakes up :)

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Interesting how we name our grandparents - traditionally or affectionately. In my family (Chinese), on the maternal side, Grandma = PawPaw and Grandpa = GungGung. On the paternal side, Grandma = EinEin (I can't spell it) and Grandpa = YehYeh. Have a great weekend!
