Life throws you...

some really shitty stuff sometimes. Stuff that I haven't had to deal with ever in my life. Stuff that scares me and makes me incredibly depressed. Death has always been something that scares me to my core. It takes my breath away. I feel a heavy weight on my chest. Watching someone you love go through something that you can not help or do anything about is one of the worst things you can experience  There isn't much to say at this moment. It's just a lot of feelings bouncing around. It hurts.

I haven't blogged...

in awhile because I've been busy doing other super fun things like playing with my  new camera all day long, signing Cain up for preschool, and hanging out with my bff all this weekend. Fair warning this is a picture overload but I always find looking at other peoples pictures is the best part!
So here are a ton of random pictures I've taken just messing around with my camera...

Ok I told you it was a picture overload! As for signing Cain up for preschool - ahhh! I am so excited but so nervous at the same time. I'm just hoping that he likes it. I think he will. He is super shy at first but once he warms up he will talk your ear off. He has never been to daycare/school or anything before so this will all be new to us. I can't lie that I'm excited for things like field trips, school parties, all those things I thought about when when I was pregnant for him and dreaming of. 
As for a weekend with my bff in town - I had such a great time! We ate lunch at my fav...olive garden, we browsed the mall and enjoyed pinkberry - my first time there. Then we enjoyed pedicures and some sonic for lunch. I had a great weekend and so thankful for a great friend that will come and visit me!

Enjoying my Sunday with my bff

Oh my goodness...I'm 30! 
I had the best birthday ever. 
A fun day filled with surprises. 
Filled with family and friends.
I woke up to a big birthday banner and cards.
Then in the afternoon there was a delivery guy bringing me flowers. 
Cain yelled out "mom you are getting alllll the presents!" Ha! It was so cute.
We picked Chris up from his office to head up north. 
I thought we were having dinner with my mom but was dooped.
 Then I thought we were going to dinner at olive garden. 
We ended up at the hotel that we were staying at and I was really surprised. 
Then I was still starving and thought we were going to dinner
 but was talked into going to the hotel bar where my friends were waiting to surprise me. 
It was so nice!
Chris ate this gigantic double burger that was in between two grilled cheese sandwiches.
After that we headed out for drinks, bowling, and fun times with friends. 
I stayed out late and got to sleep in late. 
I am super thankful for this guy...
I'm pretty sure my 30's are going to be the best ever!

The next day we did have dinner with my mom and my grandparents. 
I loved spending time with my family. 
The kids stayed the night with my mom and we went out with some friends again Sat. night.
We did some put-put where I did get a hole in one but still ended up in 3rd place.
Then on Sunday I got to hang out with my Dad, sisters, and my brother. 
It was great to hang out with all of them.
My Dad and Cain
We also celebrated my birthday with Chris family on Sunday.
Jackie made her famously delicious cake.
By Sunday I am not looking so hot, lol :)
I got a new super awesome camera for my birthday and have been taking pictures of everything!
Just a warning that there will be picture overloads coming your way.

Budding Photographer...

Cain wanted to take some pictures, last week, with my camera so I showed him how to do it and these are just a few that he got...

Weekend fun...

We decided to take Cain to the Rainforest Cafe over the weekend. He was last there when he had just turned two and was freaked out, so I was hoping this time would be better. He liked it so much more this time. Carly stayed with her favorite babysitter - I didn't think she would be very happy there. Sorry for the picture overload...
this was the first time the animals came to "life" - he wasn't to sure at first

he loved the fist tanks

Carly at 8 months...

I just want to remember these things... (It's nice to be able to look back at this blog and see where and what Cain was doing at different ages and I want to be able to do the same with Carly)

-Last week I had to take Carly to the doctor and she is 18 pounds.
-She is crawling really fast.
-She pulls herself up to everything and side steps along the furniture.
-She is eating stage 2 baby food, she loves little puffs and yogurt melts. I do make some of her food and she has also had yogurt.
-She has one bottom tooth through and the second bottom tooth has started to come through.
-She is taking two naps a day and sleeps through the night most nights.
-I started introducing her to a sippy cup but she mostly just chews on it and plays with it.
-She wears mostly 12 month clothes.

She was always growing so darn fast and it seemed like I was changing her into the next size clothes constantly but she has mostly leveled out now that she is moving so much more. She says dada and has said mama one time but won't say it again. She just learned to clap her hands when I say "yay" and she is starting to wave "buh bye". She is getting so big so fast and in three short months she will be 1 :)
