Milestone Weekend

Thursday I celebrated my 28th birthday! P and I treated ourselves to donuts before the last swim lesson. We'd celebrated with the Semi-Homemades the Saturday before, so I wasn't expecting anything from LC. He walked in with this huge box from Sprinkles. A dozen assorted cupcakes. These aren't just any cupcakes.... these are super popular, super expensive (almost $50 for 12), and pretty dang good.

Miss Priss had to sample the icing... which elicited an "mmmmmmmmmmmmmm"!

Saturday morning we dropped Scout off and headed to Belton for my 10 yr high school reunion. Aya and Da came down as well, so P stayed with Nonnie, Deeda, Aya, and Da... She had a ball doing just about anything she wanted while LC and I went to the dinner.

(29.5 weeks in this pic.... I don't feel like I look this big! Lord help me with the next 10ish weeks)

I honestly can't believe I'm 28, have been out of high school for 10 years, will have pledged Kappa 10 years ago this August, have been married for 3 1/2 years, have an almost 2 year old and about to have another little girl. Sometimes I think I can't be old enough to be doing "this".... the grown up life I so desperately wanted at such a young age.... a mortgage, being married, having children, worrying about raising said children "right", and trying to be my own person in the middle of it all. But I am, and I think I'm doing a pretty decent job, but time keeps flying by!

Saturday Recap!

Today was a BUSY day... though it seems like every day in our house is a busy day!

This morning we headed to a wildlife preserve knowing P would LOVE it! And LOVE it she did!

She was thrilled to be on a "choo choo".

Watching the Clydesdales

A zonkey (zebra and donkey)... Check out the stripes on his legs!!

The camels LOVED LC! And now, you can ask P what a camel does and she'll chew like they were... so cute!

After petting the meerkat
Petting the 3 month old kangaroo
Such a sweet Daddy to smoosh himself in the barrel so P could ride on the choo choo!
After our time with the animals, we ran over to LC's business partner's house so P could ride on the company's Razr.
She's great at steering to the right... not so great when you're the passenger ;)
Momma got to drive in the back pasture
This evening, we went to Simply Fondue with the Semi-Homemades to celebrate my birthday a few days early. We decided to do two cheeses.... cheddar and pepperjack... and chocolate. Best decision ever! It was delicious and no one missed the meat course.
(Why do we always forget the camera and end up having to use our phones?)

Big B

Last week, P, Aya and I headed south for Josh's graduation... Well, Aya for graduation, P and I just to visit since graduation didn't start until 8 (bedtime).

Wednesday night we went to dinner with Nonnie, Deeda, Tod, Josh, and Josh's girlfriend Jinah. Deeda was poured the fullest glass of wine I've ever seen poured at a restaurant!

I'm sure I'll be getting this look a lot when she's a teenager!

Running around with her favorite coasters

Putting "bebe" night night

and then laying down with her.

Helping Nonnie and Aya go through the cabinets... Nonnie and Deeda are moving soon.

Watering the ferns

and the grass

and trying to water Momma!

Take a toddler who's constantly taking her diaper off, asking us to use the potty or telling us she's gone, one of these

and some of these
and apparently we're potty training!
This is totally Miss Priss led... I was completely prepared to wait until after the baby was here, but she's obviously wanting something else. I'm sitting her on her pink potty or the big one about every 15 minutes, but even still, there's been tee-teeing on the floor right after she gets off the toilet! We aren't making a big deal about accidents, just a HUGE deal when she does go on the potty.
