Lovely weekend

It’s Sunday night again and we are relaxing after a great weekend spent around the neighborhood. On Saturday we had a few friends over to celebrate Ellis’ birthday and today we went for a bike ride and stopped by another birthday party. Ellis looks so much older in these photos. She’s really becoming a little girl.


Happy 2nd Birthday Ellis!

Can’t believe Ellis is now 2! Erik and I took off of work today to celebrate with her. We spent the morning at the adorable art/cafe/playspace Moomah in Tribeca. Ellis painted a little canvas and had a blast in their “funky forest” room. Mostly she was in complete awe of two four year old girls and tried to copy everything they were doing. So sweet to see her try and jump (or “shump” as Ellis says). She’s still working on the mechanics for shumping!

She is saying so much these days; a lot of two and three word sentences and some intense babble conversations. I love the surprise of not knowing which words she will pick up next. Really looking forward to seeing what great changes her third year will bring. I know there will be tantrums, but as long as Erik and I can keep from throwing tantrums ourselves, we should all be fine.


Molly’s wedding

We traveled to Illinois over the long Labor Day weekend to celebrate Molly and Josh’s wedding and to visit with all of the Carrow family. We had a great time and were happy to sneak in one last free flight with Ellis before her second birthday. Mike flew in from SF and Ellis greeted him by calling him by his name.“Mike” is easy for her to say. She really enjoyed spending time outside, in the pool and was in complete awe of her older cousins. We’ve had a busy few months of traveling combined with the move. Looking forward to a few weekends at home to fully settle into our new apartment and to go through the few leftover boxes I've shoved in a corner!
