Morning cuddles. This warms my heart.

Charlie’s 5th superhero birthday party! This was so fun. The kids ran an obstacle course and Elliot got some one-on-one playtime with Charlie.

Some Saturday afternoon bike riding

This was the week Elliot visited his allergist and had blood drawn. It reminded him he had a doctor’s kit for some dramatic play.

Elliot’s fortune cookie reinforced a conversation we had five minutes earlier.

Children’s Museum of Manhattan with our friends this afternoon. Elliot and Lauryn had a ball in the human body section. The toilet helped them learn about bodily functions. Hilarious and gross. He jazz exhibit was terrific. After hearing stories about Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald & Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, the storyteller asked the kids to help make a song. Elliot declared his favorite music to be jazz and Radiohead. The whole room cracked up. I sat in the back in awe (I was quietly feeding Stella). We don’t even listen to Radiohead as much as I’d like. So funny!

Morning cuddles

Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6 today with our friends. Elliot and Steven were being silly while eating their ice cream.

Besides a Cyclones game we haven’t been to Coney Island at all this summer. So weird! As with most weeks this summer we spent Monday morning at Elliot’s violin lesson. So Tuesday demanded something more eventful considering school begins in a week. We sat up the umbrella near the playground. Elliot played for nearly 4 hours! We were exhausted, but it was worth it.
