Weekend Recap: Play Dates

As I was sitting down to write this blog post, I look over at Ez and notice poop smeared all over his diaper. On the outside. So in case you were wondering what a case of the "Mondays" looks like for a stay at home mom, it basically involves half a package of wipes and a pooh scavenger hunt through the house. I'll spare you the details, but here's a humorous article on the subject if you're interested. (It made me laugh out loud. I'm sure all parents can relate.) Hope your Monday is off to a better start!

K, mess cleaned up. Back to our weekend. The past few days have been filled with play dates for Ezzy. He's definitely at the age where he mimics everything he sees, so I've been trying to make sure he's spending more time around kids. He's pretty shy and tends to spend the first 5 minutes just staring at other kids, taking it all in. My friend and her daughter Bella, who's 8, came to visit and Ezzy adored Bella. He followed her around like a little shadow. And she was really good with him. She put all his stuffed animals on a chair (the audience) and they put on a concert using Ez's toy instruments. They also played with chalk outside. Ez had a great time.

On Friday we met some friends at the splash park. Wyatt is about a year older than Ez, but unfortunately they didn't get to play together long because Wyatt refused to put on his shoes and so he didn't get to play in the water. Ez, on the other hand, refused to leave the water. So he wound up with the place to himself, and I think he kinda liked it that way. 

Saturday was a long play date with Grandma Kat. Lots of cars and puzzles and reading Panda Bear, Panda Bear what do you see. The usual.

Sunday we got in some cousin time with brunch and a mall date. Ez loved watching Logan climb on everything like a little monkey, and he actually got brave enough to branch off on his own and climb some steps all by himself. He's growing by leaps and bounds lately. 
Aww! Warms my heart to see them loving on eachother.

Sunday evening we took Ez to the park to run off some energy. We brought his ball to kick around and we found another boy who was 2 months older who also travels everywhere with a soccer ball, so of course they became insta-friends. I love how friendship works when you're a kid. At first the other kid was doing all the playing, and Ez was just observing - meaning Ez would throw the ball and the kid would run and get it and bring it back to Ez, but after some prodding Ez started running after the ball too. It was the cutest thing to watch.

So that in a nutshell was our weekend. I also finished up painting Ez's room. Pictures coming soon! How was your weekend?


  1. oh my word! He is looking so much older!!!! So cute!

  2. ha sounds like Aria. Stands and stares. Then kind of does her own thing. Sometimes I feel like I should get her involved in more things, but it is hard with the one car and lots of overtime. You know, mom guilt. But, she goes to Disney and it is kind of the same thing right? =)
