Brooks’ Favorite Things at {almost} Two Years Old

I had a reader request to share with you what Brooks is currently into at the moment and I figured since it’s a big shopping weekend coming up, it could be helpful to anyone shopping for a soon to be two year old!

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared Brooks’ Favorite things – he hasn’t gotten many new toys since the weather has been so nice, we’ve been out and about, which is what we both prefer. But I am excited about the holidays and then his birthday because with these winter months ahead, he does need a little refresh in the toy department!

Here are a few favorite things that Brooks currently loves:

1- I got this wooden magnetic block set that Brooks is all sorts of obsessed with on a pretty sweet deal from zulily. It’s really an amazing product and Brooks loves to play with it. I’ve also picked up this adorable travel tote to keep it organized and a set of wheels for a little extra fun. Amazing gift.

2- Brooks is crazy into arts and crafts. We have been doing a weekly class and he’s totally into it – He especially loves when we do the clay portion of the show, so I recently picked up some play doh for him to enjoy at home and he loves it.

3- Puzzles are currently a huge hit with Brooks – he loves to do all kinds of puzzles, but this one is extra fun because when you put the right animal in the matching shape, it makes the animal noise.

4- These aren’t exactly toys, but Brooks LOVES his rain boots. He comes down in the morning and puts them on, all by himself {occasionally on the wrong feet}. I think they are totally cute and he loves to walk around in them all day.

5- Brooks is all BOY! He loves sports already. Our neighbor got him a full sized {Notre Dame} football and if I would let Brooks carry it around all day, he would. I make him keep it on the second floor of our house because he occasionally tried to throw it at his brother. But he loves to “play football” and practice catching. So fun!

6- Daniel Tiger is a favorite in our house, Brooks especially loves him. He just started carrying around this little plush toy and it’s so sweet.

7- Little man loves trains + we have a bunch of them. This is just a small sample – but I’m a big fan of anything wooden + these trains are just fun!

8- Got this Doctor Set as a gift recently and Brooks is totally into it. He takes everything out of the box and does a little check-up with the set, it’s all sorts of adorable. Plus, I really love this brand.

9- Brooks + Charles play basketball every night together. They both totally love this hoop set – it’s a classic and will grow with him.


Now it’s your turn to share –

My #BecauseMoment

I am a massive believer in the fact that every now and then you need to treat yourself, especially moms! Maybe I’m a little biased, because I am a mom, but I know firsthand just how much attention, focus and love these little ones require. Seriously, sometimes Brooks just sucks all the life and energy out of the room {in a good way!} because he’s got such a big personality and it’s coming out and more and more all the time – but man, it can be exhausting when you are in it all day, everyday!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining at all. I love my job and being able to stay at home with my boys is a dream BUT that being said, in order to give my boys 100% I need to have a little time to myself every now and then.

My mom and mother-in-law are great helps with the boys, both of which helping me during the week a few days. Its so amazing to have them help out – so I can get somethings done around the house and so I can get out of the house baby-free once in a while. Usually it’s to the store to do a solo grocery trip {which is therapeutic in itself!}, but every now and then I take a little detour to treat myself and take care of my whole body!

Especially, as a nursing mom, I know how important it is to take care of myself. My body seriously works hard for me and for Graham to keep him getting the nutrition he needs. He’s put on some serious pounds last month – and as an exclusively breastfeeding mom, that takes its toll!


I might add a Massage Envy gift card to my Christmas list this year! Because of course I deserve it, and my body will totally thank me for it!
