Happy 2 Months to My Little(est) Man!
You love to eat, smile, and coo. You’ve rolled over a few times from your tummy to your back, and you don’t mind being carted around to the park, the gym, and library story time so that your brother can get some toddler interaction.
You do mind sleep. What’s up with that? You give me a good 4-hour stretch at first (9pm-1am), but then you’re up hourly after that 95% of the time. Trust me, I enjoy your company too, but you can wait until morning to see mommy!!
The play date I hosted Monday was a success. There were a couple cancellations, but the three toddlers and their three baby siblings who made it had a great time.
I asked each mom to bring a batch of healthy snacks for the kids. Instead of a cookie exchange, like those that are so popular around the holidays, we swapped kid-friendly snacks. I made these homemade Larabars, which Ethan loves. (Though I had to add more dates to the food processor this time. Just FYI.)
If you’re not a mama, you could totally do this with girlfriends too. Have them over for wine, and trade healthy snacks with them. I mean, who doesn’t love snacks? – especially when some of us grow tired of eating the same ol’ stuff.
