Blake's Pictures from School

As promised here are some of the pictures that Blake's daycare sends us of his school day adventures. He seems to have mastered smiling for the camera. 

I have no clue what he is doing here but I think its a hilarious picture!

Evening the Score

The Malic household will no longer be dominated by males! On Monday we found out that we are having a baby girl in March!! Woohoo. Now this just means lots of fun shopping for me and preparing Blake to be the protective big brother. 

Our little sweet pea is growing right on track and everything is looking normal. That is the best part-- a healthy baby!!!

Family Fall Weekend

After last weekend's birthday festivities we had a totally low key weekend. We had NO PLANS FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND!! That is almost unheard of lately and frankly, we enjoyed every minute of it. 

On Saturday Louis and Blake raked some leaves and Blake took the liberty of jumping in the leaves and "messing up" Daddy's nice piles. Haha. 

Even though it was in the 40's and Blake had no napped, he insisted on going to the park after the leaf jumping adventures. This kid LOVES going down slides. 

No fear going down the big kid slide

One of these days I will remind myself to have Louis take some pictures so I am actually in a few :)

New Family Picture

Since attempting a family picture at Blake's birthday was an epic fail, We decided that before Melanie left that we would attempt a family picture on Sunday (Blake's actual birthday). Luckily the stars aligned for two minutes and we got a decent family picture. WOOOHOOO. It is a birthday miracle.

Blake's 2nd Birthday: Part 2

Raegan loves her Blake

Singing Happy Birthday. He didn't cry (which is better than his Mommy at that age!!) and blew out the candle like a champ!!

The blue frosting got everywhere and Blake asked for seconds on the cake. He definitely a fan of sweets


As always I didn't get a family picture or a picture with Blake and his grandparents.... I also know that others took a lot of great pictures so send them my way!!

Blake's 2nd Birthday: Part 1

For Blake's 2nd Birthday we decided to keep things low key. Luckily, Melanie, Ryan and Maddie were able to come visit over his birthday weekend (they normally come during Labor Day but couldn't this year). This meant that the birthday celebration lasted all weekend. 

One of the few times over the weekend they were both calm and relaxed!

Getting crazy in the basement using the slide and jumping in all of the birthday balloons

Goofballs on the couch

On Saturday afternoon we had Blake's party. We just invited the grandparents, Katie, Eric and Raegan and then of course Melanie, Ryan and Maddie. 

Blake had just woken up from his nap when the party started, he wasn't a happy camper. Raegan was also really upset that she had to share the birthday boy!

Not surprising, Blake and his Papa

Ahhh, its so easy taking pictures without kids in them! 

 Yep, this is what happens when we try to include the kids......

This picture explains it all....being a toddler is tough!!

Our Baby is 2

Our sweet little man is two today. We cannot believe how fast these last two years have gone by. He is getting such a strong personality and talking up a storm. We know he is going to make the best big brother. We love you peanut!!

Play Date

On Saturday we had Dave (Louis and I's old boss from Hewitt) and his daughter Katie over for a playdate. The last time we had a playdate with them was about a year ago. Clearly this was long overdue. Katie is only a few weeks younger than Blake so I was curious to see how they would interact. Although, leave it to Blake to not be wearing any pants for the majority of the playdate! I swear, I think he is a secret nudist!!

Playing outside. Blake is definitely not a fan of sharing, haha

Warming up to the idea of Katie touching his toys

Finally, Friends!!

Katie even scored a big Blake hug when she was leaving. What a ladies man!

What a goof

The last two weeks at daycare they have captured his personality in pictures quite well!

He is growing like a weed

Blake lately LOVES to cook. He always insists on helping us make dinner and makes food at daycare for all of his friends.

This kid loves music. Probably because I danced far too much while I was pregnant!!

He is probably going start teaching me technology tricks in the near future

Goofy face

What an artist

He is becoming quite the Play Doh master

Goddard Fall Fest

On Sunday, Goddard (Blake's daycare) threw their annual Fall Fest. As one of the parents on the planning committee I knew that we had to hit up this fest. Besides being free, it was going to be filled with all of his friends and teachers. Perfect!

Blake of course was clingy at the beginning but did insist on going to stand by the big scarecrow

The pumpkin painting station was definitely his favorite. He covered that entire pumpkin, including the stem! He must have used a gallon of paint. 

Of course Mommy is the one who also gets covered in paint while Daddy maintains a safe distance!

After pumpkin painting Blake and Louis made a Halloween necklace for me and ate a bunch of apple cider donuts (yummy). I had to help man one of the booths for a little bit so Louis and Blake walked around a bit and then ate some food. By the end Blake was falling asleep in my arms.
