It's Cool to be 2!


Here are my two cool 2 year olds having breakfast on the morning of their birthday day. I know I know it's almost a month ago but we've been busy livin it up for their birthday month!

We've had a month full of events to celebrate their big milestone into toddler-hood. I've also been celebrating the fact that I have survived 2 years with twins. I'm pretty independent when it comes to most things but this has been the hardest endeavors of my life. And I'm very proud of having accomplished just a few things like cooking food my children will eat....sometimes, going grocery shopping with both of them by myself, taking them to the doctor check ups by myself, and going to the park just me & the peanuts. Not bad huh?!

Birthday breakfast was heart shaped banana pancakes & Valentina loooooved it!

Later that day gramma bought them their very own cake & they didn't look like they were going to share with the rest of us! lol

And a couple of Doras and Diegos and Boots...yes we do 2 of everything.

And after the cake we read our birthday cards...

They were musical cards & as you can see it was a big hit.

So because it was a Wednesday and we couldn't have a big ol party in the middle of the week we did the next best thing. We went to Chuckie's because it's ALWAYS a party at Chuck E Cheese's! And just our luck the big cheese himself showed up for our special occasion.

A couple of days later we threw the girls a birthday bash that I think they really enjoyed. I love birthdays and I love to celebrate them to the fullest (especially my own). And no birthday can be complete without some good friends and family to celebrate with you. I also want to make sure that the peanuts have great memories of their birthdays or at least great pictures that show how much fun they had at their birthdays. I never ever want them to doubt how very special they are to us. We love them both so much and are so grateful for the day that they entered our lives.

Our party was....DDDDD DOOORAA!! What else? These kids live, eat & breath home girl. We party-ed it up Dora style :)

Cake.....ummm I dunno what the heck happened to Dora & her little monkey friend but J thinks she may have been hanging out at the beach too long. I was a tiny bit annoyed here since we got this cake at very reputable bakery in Hoboken, NJ. If anyone watches TLC, then you know who I'm talking about. At least the fox looked good & that sneaky fox is Val's favorite character.

And finally our guests...

Happy Birthday my babies! I love you more than I could ever put into words. The last 2 years have been so much fun. You have filled my life with so much happiness.
