Here are some photos from Elí’s first Elmo birthday. I guess Elmo is becoming a trend :).

My little guy’s GRRiffic 2nd birthday

He LOVES Daniel Tiger and this was his last rendezvous as an only child*, so I figured we’d celebrate him to the max. And celebrate we did…

I went way overboard on all the little details and decorations but I was so busy chasing around my toddler and making sure everyone was having a good time that I didn’t get any photos of the actual event itself.  But at least I had some photos pre-party of some of my prep work.

*An entire year has passed and I just realized I never published this post. My son (pictured here) turned three two weeks ago and the other one is almost a year old.
