We celebrated Keith's birthday with dinner out Saturday night. Sunday we all enjoyed breakfast together at home. And Keith got to eat on his special plate all day. We went out for lunch and ran some errands. Then just hung out at home together. It was a really nice day!
Of course there was cake!
And he had a little buddy to help him blow out the candles...and eat the cake!
Today my favorite person turns 30. Keith doesn't get near the credit he should on this blog, but around here we all think he is pretty awesome!
He works really hard for our family.
He pitches in more than your average husband. He does most of the laundry, runs the swiffer everyday, helps cook, keeps the house neat, cleans up spilled milk and cheerios, baths Cooper and this list could go on and on. This really is a tiny sampling of all he does...I promise.
Point is, he's the best. And I know we don't tell him so as often as we should. We all appreciate him and love him so much. And hope he has a great birthday and many, many, many more!
We get to find out boy or girl today. We are so excited. But I'm also really excited just to see our little baby and make sure everything is good and the baby is healthy and growing. Such a miracle.
I said it last time when I was pregnant with Sawyer but days like this are rare in life. A life changing day but in the best possible way! To me one of the top 3 days of the entire pregnancy -- along with actually having the baby and finding out your pregnant.
We are so blessed...either way it turns out. We are already so in love with this little baby! But it will be nice to know! So here's hoping the baby cooperates!
Yep, Sawyer is going to be a big brother! We are thrilled!
I am 17 weeks -- due Aug. 27th. So far, everything is going great. I feel really good -- there were a couple of rough days in the first trimester but as of now, I'm great. Which is good because a 13 month old really keeps you busy!
We actually have our big ultrasound scheduled for this Thursday and we can't wait. We are so excited to find out if we are having another boy or a little girl. Of course, all that really matters is a healthy baby!
My Dad, Kathy, Sister, Harper & Henley came to visit. They arrived Thursday afternoon and left this morning. Our house was way too quiet this morning! There are a lot of ways to describe 3 full days with 3 little kids but to me joyful is the most fitting. While I am so sad that they are gone, my tank is full. Three days with some family was just what I needed. We did lots of cooking and eating, lots of playing, and lots of laughing.
Below are some pictures from the first day.
A rainbow cake that Harper and I made Thursday night. I knew she would be the perfect assistant and she was. Just looking at this cake makes me happy!
Friday we packed a picnic and headed to the park. Everybody had fun!
Just in case you ever wondered what would happen if you asked a 4 year old, 17 month old and 13 month old to stand still and look at the camera...this is what you get.
