Paul took me to Ruth's Chris Steak House in Park City for my birthday. It was very expensive and quite fancy. It was fun to dress up, eat good food, be without kids, and celebrate my birthday with my best friend and soul mate.
Of course we went all out: appetizers, steaks with sides, and dessert. They even put a candle on my dessert! Hate to admit it, but I am 31 years old!!
My husband is the most caring, patient (he has to be with me) man ever! I love him and am so glad that I've been able to celebrate 10 birthdays with him! He is the best father and husband ever. I feel so lucky to have found him!! Thanks for a great birthday, honey! I love you!
Happy Birthday to me! Paul and I are headed up to Park City to eat at the famous Ruth's Chris Steak House! While we're out celebrating- Stockton and Carson are with Auntie Amy playin. Gone only an hour and Talon, Ally, and Stockton have already built a snowman!!
Baby Carson has a cold and is finding it difficult to breathe. Stockton felt bad for him so he let him 'borrow' some of his stuffed animals! It was so tender! I'm lucky that Stockton likes his lil bro. But sometimes he needs his mom and he politely says, "Give baby brother to daddy." I love my kids and hope they become best friends!
My cousin Sarah and I are 4 days apart and have always been close. Yesterday we held our 31st birthday party! People say we look a lot alike and after these pictures, I see it. I've never noticed that our eyes are the same color!!
My mommy and my new baby! My aunt Theresa got great pictures of Carson and I'm waiting for her to email them to me. As soon as I get them I'll post them. He is getting cuter and cuter everyday!!
I got this fabulous scarf, but decided to put a little culture in the picture :)
I got so much stuff! So totally spoiled! I loved everything! Thanks so much to my family for giving me great birthday. And, of course it's not over, because my real birthday is on Saturday. - Yay for birthday celebrations that last a week long!
I know I posted this quote back in 2008 or so, but I am having the same feelings. I love it when someone sums up how you feel so eloquently.
"When you're pregnant, you can think of nothing but having your own body to yourself again; yet after giving birth you realize that the biggest part of you is now somehow external, subject to all sorts of dangers and disappearance, so you spend the rest of your life trying to figure out how to keep them close enough for comfort. That's the strange thing about being a mother. Until you have a baby, you don't even realize how much you were missing one." --Jodi Picoult
Stockton is slowly getting used to his lil bro. Looks like Carson will have red/blonde hair and blue eyes, just like Stockton. But his complexion does seem to be more like mine, he's darker than Stocky. I love my boys and am really happy! Only thing I wish I had more of is sleep. Being a mother is the hardest job I've ever had, but one I'd never give up! :)
