Jacob’s 2nd Birthday

Jacob turned two years old on Friday, June 4th. We celebrated his birthday by spending the morning playing at home and after nap went to an indoor play place and a train themed restaurant for dinner. Jacob and Lucas had a lot of fun and I wanted to share some pictures from the day.

Jacob's birthday shirt said "Choo Choo I'm Two!"

Tell me “seasoned” moms… what did you think of this age? Would you call them the “Terrific Twos” or “Terrible Twos”? Jacob has tons of energy and is pretty rambunctious but I am thinking this year is going to be terrific anyways :)

Birthday Shirt Review and Giveaway

On Wednesday Jacob had some of his friends over for a birthday playdate. Here are some pictures of Jacob from the celebration:

See the cute shirt he was wearing at the playdate? Mimi from Mimi’s Babies Etsy shop made it just for him. To customize the shirt I was able to choose what fabric I wanted, what number I wanted, and the name I wanted on the shirt. I loved having a special shirt for him to wear and it will make a great keepsake.
