Cristian's second Birthday

Hi, guys! I know it's been a few weeks since I updated the blog. However, with everything going on in the country/world right now, I had to take some time away from both my social media and blog. For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know all about my feelings post-election. I made a short video about them two weeks ago on my YouTube channel and if you want to know more of where I stand click here. 

Now let's move on to what we've been up to these past few weeks! Cristian turned two years old in November and just like every other birthday we celebrate I can hardly believe that another year came and went. I feel as if he was just born and I was holding his 9.5 lb body against my chest. He was such a sweet little chunker and would sleep a good five hour stretches those first few weeks! Now he's got such a great sense of humour. He's constantly playing jokes on Gabriel and it's so hard not to laugh when he's doing them. Just today he was playing with the Christmas tree so I told him he couldn't touch it, but he could look at it with his eyes. I know that's a lot to ask a two-year-old but it doesn't hurt to try haha! Anyway, he grabbed his baby doll (his current fave toy) grabbed her little hand then touched the tree! He then proceeded to tell her, "No toques!" (don't touch!) LOL I can't make this stuff up! 
We ended up celebrating his birthday with a group of our friends and their little's. I decided to throw a "pajama/breakfast' bash and asked everyone to dress in their comfy pajamas. We had waffles with strawberries and lots of whipped cream! It was such a fun day full of lots food, friends and laughs! It was all very easy to prep as well. I was very glad I snapped most of these pictures before everyone came over because the 'donut cake' was a hit and all of the kiddos dug in right away :) We are so incredibly grateful to have Cristianito in our lives. He is such a joy and we love him so very much! This whole internet world can be such a strange place. But it can also provide a space to share our memories, ideas and hopes for the future. I hope that by me sharing little bits of our family we can share a bit of inspiration and love to you. Because even though life has its challenges it's also beautiful! 




Wishing you a great weekend!
