It's the little things

Look at that big boy!
Playing catch... serious business.
I'm the luckiest mom in the world.. wake up to this face every day.
Rare photo of all three of us.
Nom nom, baby fingers!
Silly boy.
Pancakes + cars = one happy Ezzy
Cinnamon roll + french toast = most genius breakfast combo ever

Linking up with Ashley and Jess this week to share some of our favorite little things. 

First, I'd like to point out that I can't believe Easter came and went so fast. Our living room still looks like a colorful explosion of Easter eggs. I've seen a lot of mom's talk about how much their kids' loved collecting Easter eggs in their baskets, but Ezzy only likes dumping the eggs out of his basket, then picking them up and trying to eat them, and then throwing the slobbery eggs across the room. Not sure if that's a boy thing, or an 11 month old thing, or just an Ezzy thing. 

The weather has been pretty warm lately, but thankfully we have lots of trees in our yard, so Ezzy and I have been spending time outdoors in the shade playing catch and kicking his ball around. That never gets old (for him). 

All three of us have been sick at one point or another in the past two weeks, which sucks. Ezzy had his first fever, poor baby. The bright side is that we've had plenty of snuggles in bed. Also we've been binge-watching Game of Thrones and House of Cards. No spoilers though, we're not that far into either. We actually just discovered House of Cards this week, and it is by far one of my favorite shows. Kevin Spacey is perfect.

Lately Ezzy has decided he likes having his fingers "bitten." So when he's sitting on my lap I'll catch him staring at my mouth, and then all of a sudden he's shoving his little fingers in between my teeth and cracking up when I pretend to bite them. Where does he come up with these things?

I was craving french toast earlier this week, so Ezzy and I had a little Mommy son pajama breakfast date at a nearby diner. They had cinnamon roll french toast, so of course I had to try that, and it was amazing. Ezzy had pancakes for the first time, and he devoured them.

On our neighborhood walks, Joe and I often pass by a sushi restaurant that smells soooo good, so we finally decided to try it out. Joe's mom and husband came too and we ordered a bunch of appetizers. Everything was delicious. There are actually several restaurants within walking distance that we've never tried in the year that we've lived here, so I think it's time to start crossing a few more off our list. 


  1. What an adorable little face! Such a sweet boy!
