I have unintentionally taken a little blog break. Mostly because I got hooked on a new show.....

Here's a little doo-wop of what we've been up to the last couple weeks. Because I know you all are just dddyyyiinnngg to know...

-My parents came and visited and it was amazing. Everett adores them and it is so fun to watch.
-Played Settlers, lost settlers, had an epiphany that I might not be good at that game like I thought.
-Went to 3 BYU rugby games. Still have little to no idea how that game works.
-Totally forgot about St. Patricks day on the 17th. Convinced Everett and Ben that the 18th was the new St. Patricks Day and we could celebrate then. And by celebrate I mean put green food coloring in our cereal
-My best friend cousin came down two weekends in a row and it was good for the heart to catch up and spend time together.
-Stayed up later than I have in like 4 years pretending we were still in college or something talking and playing with said cousin friend.
-2 trips to the jumping trampoline places that Everett is literally obsessed with. He asks to go 16 times a day and spends the rest of his times watching videos on  my phone of him at the jumping place.
-Saw Cinderella with the girl cousins and loved every cheesy second of it. It was really beautiful and I want all of my children present and future to see it.
-Went to a gender reveal party, I love when my friends have babies!
-Had a bonfire with cousins and friends and it felt like SSSUUUMMMMMEER (said like Olaf)
-Read 6 books! I've been on a big reading kick lately. Highly recommend the 'chick flick books' Just One Day, Just One Year and the final little novella Just One Night by Gayle Foreman.
-Had one sick little boy and cleaned up more puke than I ever thought possible. Laundy4eva.
-Big decision making about what we are going to do this summer. I hate change.

Everett was sick this week and it was horrible but watching him sleep and cuddling all day was a small bright side.

Choo Choo Everett's Two!

We had Everett's family and friends birthday party last Saturday and it was so fun! Everett (and us) seriously felt so loved and happy surrounded by so many good friends and family! My aunt and Uncle in Provo were nice enough to let us use their beautiful home and I had a lot of help from family!

It was train themed and I had a lot of fun putting it all together. We served chicken burrito bowls with all the dressings and cupcakes and fruit pizza for dessert. It was a lot of time but I actually enjoy this kind of stuff, getting my creative on, I feel like I'm indirectly actually using my advertising degree or something ;). I can't keep my house clean and a lot of days I am in my pj's till 2pm, but I can throw a decent birthday party!

Watching Everett try to sing along jibberish while we were all singing happy birthday to him and blowing out his 2 little candles made my night and life.

Roll the pictures...(I'm a dummy and got hardly any pictures of the actual guests)

^^^The invite  ticket!
^^^Chugga Chugga (get it ;)) straws that no one actually used, they look cute though.

 ^^^Found these little boxes at Micheals, took off the lids, painted a stripe, added some wheels and ta da!

 ^^^My new favorite dessert!!
^^^My sister made almond joy cupcakes. To die for. I had like 7

 ^^^My mother in law with her grandsons!
 ^^^Made the railroad table runner just out of foam sheets and glued them together

 ^^^Everett's littlest buddy Wesley

^^^All the little boys loved helping opening the presents

Everett: 2 Years Old

Everett at two years old is a spunky little sweetheart. He is full of personality, becoming so social, loves to be out and about and gives the most tender hugs and kisses. He is so happy these days and so fun, he is so excited about life and every little thing is so exciting for him to do/play/learn/discover.

At this moment, while I am writing this, he is sitting on his little lion chair, hands behind his head in the classic relax position, leg crossed over the other, a bowl of blueberries by his side and watching his very favorite, Despicable Me 2 or "minion movie" as we call it.  He is sensitive and caring, he shares with other kids so well and so so playful.  We love him more than life itself and love watching him become this little toddler.

New Observations and things I don't want to forget.

-Sleeping so great these days (who knew>?!) Sleeps from 8:30pm-7:30am at night and having one big nap a day anywhere from 2-3 hours.
-Not picky with food but so busy that its hard to get him to eat enough. Has boycotted the highchair completely. Favorite foods are bananas, blueberries, toast every morning and pasta.
-Loves Paw Patrol, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Curious George
-Saying new words every single day. He is a little slower with his talking but like I said improving so quickly! Says about 70+ words, and just starting to put a few together like good job, thank you and my personal favorite love you (yub-you)
-Runs everywhere-always
-Wants to do EVERYTHING himself-get dressed, get undressed, up stairs, down stairs, in the car and in his car seat all has to be done on his own
-Although he wants to do all the daily tasks himself, he hasn't mastered playing by himself yet, like at all. And he still despises nursery and screams the whole time if we don't stay.
-Has quite the nightime routine. He needs to gather and sleep with kitty kat (lion), puppy (puppy), Peter (giraffe) Olaf (as big as him), puppy's blanket and his sippy cup. He has to hold them all while I rock and sing to him and then gather them around him in the crib to go to sleep.
-Favorite toys in the whole world are any and all balls and his mini hockey sticks.
-Loves watching, talking about and playing basketball, football, hockey and soccer.
-Can completely navigate and use my phone and ipad to his liking. He can find the youtube folder, pick a minion clip, skip the ad and chromecast it!!! Don't judge me
-Loves LOVES to be tickled and wrestle with dad and Uncle Matt
-So much more social and less clingy to Ben and I. Loves going to Aunt Norma's and Uncle Rory's for dinner some Sundays.
-Copies everything we and older kids do.
-Mastered the fake laugh, fake smile and fake cough.
-Still loves the bath, being outside, all candy and chocolate, Costco and cuddling
-Still hates eggs, getting dressed, waking up from his naps and having to leave any place he is having fun.

A boy and his lion watching Curious George I'm sure.

And a week before his second birthday, he got his first haircut

I'm so excited for this weekend. Everett's turned 2 on Wednesday and we had a perfect little day, but we are having his 'choo-choo' party on Saturday with some family and friends (including my best friend who flies in that night). I have been doing little party prep tasks every nap time and bedtime for hours, stuff like glue little flags to striped straws and other things no one but me actually cares about. I like it though.

++My girlfriends and I had the funniest group text going about this dang freaking dress. Everyone thinks it is either white/gold or blue/black (the blue/black people, including my husband should be institutionalized) although I see purple and gold so I am an alien.

++Ben got me these earrings for Valentines Day. Ok I ordered them for myself from him for Valentines Day and I haven't taken them off. I got an E and the heart, I love personalized jewelry.

++Favorite dresses at the Oscars were Zoe Saldana (#1), Margot Robbie, Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick and Kerry Washington. (Apparently I'm really into blue dresses this year ;) ) I think Boyhood or American Sniper should have won best picture, Birdman was literally one of the worst movies I have ever seen, hated it so much. I thought Neil Patrick Harris was surprisingly boring as host. Bring back Ellen.

++I saw on some random facebook link spam that Kaitlin was confirmed the next bachelorette? Is this true? I love her, think she is awesome and she is from Alberta! Although I would have loved Britt too, I know she took a lot of heat at the end there but I still love her. Was she not allowed to change her mind about Arlington? (Carly was soooo witchy, can't stand her) Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate. And did you hear Chris is going to be on Dancing With the Stars, anything other than go back to Iowa I guess

++Did you see this trick to stop yourself from crying. I tend to start crying embarrassingly when talking to people of authority (ish). Example-trying to figure out wrongful cell phone charges with the Verizon people--weeping. Talking to passport agency trying to get Everett's American passport-Shaky voice crying, Ben has to take over. I'm not sure why this is, but I'm interested to try this trick!

++I was dying over a friends blog post about being a sunbeam teacher

++ Number one on my wishlist right now. Mom shoes making a comeback!

"Lot's of moms cry when their kids get their first haircut ok!>?"

If you follow me on insta, you know how much I love Everett's flowing, blonde wispy locks! I was so emotional about  his first haircut, I love little boys with long hair but it was getting a little out of control, especially the bedhead! So a week before his second birthday, he got his first haircut!

First a little ode to his hair: 
oh and also...

As much as I adore it, I knew it was time for a cut. And guess what? I loooovvvveee it! My awesome Aunt Norma cut it and it is perfect, she knew exactly what I wanted; to keep it longer-ish and a little mullet-ish. He sat so still and actually got so relaxed I thought he might fall asleep. I was scared it would make him look all grown up, but he still looks like my little baby but all the baby fuzz mess is gone. His hair actually went way more curly and it is so delicious.

How many pictures can you have from a 7 minute haircut? Let me show you.
