When is their actual birthday?
December 5th

-- Party or no party?
We don't do parties, but we celebrate as a family of 5
Still do decorations, cake, presents, etc. just no outside family/friends.

-- Gifts?
I have a few toys bookmarked. I'll probably go to TRU a few days before his birthday and pick him a few things that I think he'll love. He's still too young to really get birthdays and with Christmas around the corner, I don't plan to go overboard.

-- Cake design?
I always make a cake myself, from scratch. I'm debating between panda & fire truck right now. I did dinosaur last year.

& let's share a little bit about our little 2YR old monkeys....


Favorite cartoon
Bubble Guppies, Thomas, Chuggington.. He also watches My Little Pony with his sisters, lol.

-- Favorite foods
Any fruit, waffles, mac-n-cheese (homemade), pb&j sandwiches, green peas, Naan bread, wraps. He LOVES rice & potatoes!! And any kind of ice cream, chocolate, cookies, etc. Has a terrible sweet tooth!!

-- Favorite toy (currently owned)
Anything with wheels.. he loves it all - airplanes, school buses, 911 vehicles, cars, trucks - whatever. He also loves his stuffed monkey & stuffed panda bears.

-- Do they talk a little? Talk a lot?
He's starting to put words together, but no full sentences yet. He'll put 2 words together like, "My choo-choo", or "no milk", etc. He has an overall count of 35-40 words he says regularly.

-- Loud & wild or quiet & shy?
Erm.. he's not a wild child. At all. He's very obedient, doesn't cause trouble much, generally a laid back/calm child (like his daddy!). He has a very calm, sweet nature about him.

-- What were they for Halloween?
Panda bear


-- Crib or toddler bed?
Crib. He hasn't given us any reasons to switch, so we're waiting for now.

-- What # kid are they ..now that it's 2yrs later?
Still the baby. His sisters are 5.5 and 7.

-- When is their actual birthday?
December 2nd

-- Party or no party?
I'm thinking no party this year. We just had a big one for my older son. I think we're going to rent a hotel for a few days in Orlando and hit up Sea World and Old Town. I also want to take him by the train station so we can stand reeeeeally close to the edge and wait for a train to pull up. He will fricken LOVE that. He is train OBSESSED these days. LOL

-- Theme?
I'll still decorate the house.. so Thomas for sure!

-- Gifts?
Lots and lots of Thomas! It's the only thing on my list! Everything else will wait for Christmas.

-- Cake design?
No cake. Maybe cupcakes. Maybe not. We'll see. Last year the frosting made his face turn red. He is definitely not a sweet eater. Maybe we'll fnd a fun do-it-yourself ice cream place in Orlando. I'll have to look that up!



& let's share a little bit about our little 2YR old monkeys....


-- Favorite cartoon?
Thomas the Train! ...if you would have asked me a few weeks ago it was Curious George & SuperWhy.. now... he will bring you the remote and yell CHOOOOOOO-CHOOOOOOOO until you put it on. LOL

-- Favorite foods?
Bananas! & green beans! ..not together of course.

-- Favorite toy?
His one and only Thomas train. ...& our big GeoTrax train set. He & his brother play with that every..single..day.

-- Do they talk a little? Talk a lot?
Talks quite a lot now!

-- Loud & wild or quiet & shy?
LOUD & WILD!

-- What were they for Halloween?
Batman

-- Crib or toddler bed?
Toddler bed.

-- What # kid are they ..now that it's 2yrs later?
#2 ..still the baby of the house ♥

-- Favorite toy (currently owned) cars and trains (all of his toys are in boxes right now from the move so he's been playing with what's at grandmas haha)

-- Do they talk a little? Talk a lot? he's a non-stop talker. he even likes to talk into my phone. he launches this Ok Google app (which you say "ok google" to launch) then talks into the voice to text hah. he says lots of phrases/sentences and tons of new words every day.

-- Loud & wild or quiet & shy? he's sorta "loud" at home or when he's comfortable, he's quite the character but he's shy around new people and in new situations.

-- What were they for Halloween? He was a pumpkin lol he was my accessory (I was Cinderella)




-- Crib or toddler bed? he's actually in my bed while we're transitioning from houses (we moved from FL back to NY) and staying in my dads we have no room for a toddler bed but when we get in our new house I'll put him in the toddler bed when we move in.

-- When is their actual birthday?
Dec 15

-- Party or no party?
Yes small family party

-- Theme?
"construction" if I manage to start getting it planned...

-- Gifts?
We got him a little pople wheely ramp toy. Got it half price about a month ago. Not sure what else with it. Trains is actually a really good idea - he doesn't have any of those yet.

-- Cake design?
something to do with construction - or cupcakes... not sure


& let's share a little bit about our little 2YR old monkeys....


-- Favorite cartoon
Jake and the Neverland Pirates - he gets right into it yelling "oh ho!" and "way hey!" after the characters. And he always tries to "count" the gold dubloons with them too (and cheers afterwards)
also still a huge fan of Mickey (he yells "toooodles!!!" too)
He also seems to like Sofia the first (but that is probably because it's his big sisters favourite show)


-- Favorite foods
anything... LOL He LOVES junk food, but he also loves rice (!), yogurt, bananas (does a 'happy dance' when he gets one), peanut butter sandwiches, on and on.

-- Favorite toy (currently owned)
He loves his cars, pushes them around all the time "vroooooom"

-- Do they talk a little? Talk a lot?
Garbles a LOT lol, getting better with words. Almost knocked me over the other night when out of no where on the car ride home he said "ma-ee! looka da twee!" (there was nothing special about the tree btw - he is just proud he knows that word and points them out constantly)

-- Loud & wild or quiet & shy?
Loud & Wild for sure

-- What were they for Halloween?
he was a monkey (but refused to wear the head part - he only wore the body (but it had a tail!))

-- Crib or toddler bed?
Twin bed - he's doing great in it now! He doesn't go to bed right away, he'll play with toys for a bit and then when he feels tired he climbs up into his bed and goes to sleep. (he looks so small in his bed )

-- What # kid are they ..now that it's 2yrs later?
He's the 2nd and last kid. We only wanted 2 and are quite happy with our little family <3
