The Birthday Boy (almost)

We went out and celebrated Daniel's upcoming 28th birthday! Yea I said 28...I married a MUCH older man ;). Anyways D is slammed right now with finals coming up, so we went out a couple of days early. His actual birthday isn't till Tuesday. We went to one of D's favorite places...Cheesecake Factory. It was delish as always.


The birthday boy with his main man!

Then we went to burn some energy to none other than Toys R Us! This kid is OBSESSED with trains!

uUh...can we say haircut time??

And here I am with Caleb at 23 weeks.

You of course can't tell from the picture but I was totally supporting the rubber band method with these jeans. I am stubborn sometimes and feel the need to squeeze into my pre-pregnancy jeans.

All in all we had a fun night! I love this man more than words can express and I am delighted daily to be walking with him in this journey called life =)

**warning this is a picture post!**

More to come on what made my Easter EXTRA special. Will wait to share that for another post because it deserves one all by itself!!!!!

Breakfast with the Boys!

This morning when we woke up, I turned to Daniel and said, "Since we have to go to Panera anyways today for our party tonight, do you want to get breakfast there?" With no hesitation D quickly responded "Yes!"

We literally rolled out of bed and off we went (in our jammies except D because, well...moving on).

Loaded up in the car and headed out!

This is our driver. I promise he is a happy driver, I just think he is still waking up =)

Our spread...Whole grain bagel with hazelnut cream cheese for myself, cinnamon roll for E and sausage, egg & cheese for D! D also helped little man with the cinnamon roll!

and we can't go anywhere without our milk!

my boys (aren't they adorable =))!!!

My last bite. Always want to savor this!

And the ONLY picture you will get of me. No makeup, in my jammies, pregnant = UNATTRACTIVE!

Seriously y'all how adorable is this? Eli got a box from his Nana & Grandaddy the other day for Easter, and this was one of the gifts inside. So stinkin' cute =)

this is how we clean our plates!

I know this kid (if he could) would say "Thank you Daddy & Mommy for breakfast" (or at least I like to think so).

Okay, just pulled a cake out of the oven for our Easter celebration tomorrow and then need to prepare for our party tonight with our SEBC peeps!

22 weeks

Caleb is growing like a weed which means I am too!

Its hard to believe that my body has gone from this...(definitely poking out in the second picture)

to today...

I think I truly forgot how much my body did change with Eli!

Nothing new to really report except that I am still feel great (pregnancy wise) with Caleb dancing/kicking all around in my tummy. I am just still a little under the weather and now Daniel is coming down with it =(.

And I'll leave you with this..

Sometimes (and please someone comfort me and tell me your husband does this) I find random pictures on our camera. It is when Daniel gets ahold of the camera and I don't know about it...well, pictures like this show up!

(if you can't tell it's my back side.)

Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been under the weather for a few days now trying to shake this cold. Will be back soon with pictures and more posts!

Random thoughts rolling around in my head....

*warning this is very random and in no specific order

I had way to much junk food today due to celebrating my birthday.

I still can't believe I am 25. That just sounds old to me (okay sorry to all those who have exceeded that age and are rolling your eyes just about now!)

Caleb is a very busy and active boy in my tummy. I feel like he is dancing in there at times.

My goal for tomorrow morning on the treadmill is 4 miles. Doesn't sound like much but that's about all I can squeeze out of this almost 21 week pregnant body of mine (and I don't have enough time to run more unfortunately).

D is super busy with school. While he was in the middle of writing one of his million papers the other night...he looked up at me and said "I can't remember what it is like coming home and not having school work to do."

I am reading through Exodus right now and really enjoying it!

I am also reading Radical by David Platt. Um yea, GREAT book!!!

I am making Eli some pretty adorable shorts right now too. Pics to come when I am done.

Heading to the beach to visit my sis and brother in law in a month and so ready!

Typing all of this on the iPad. Not the easiest thing in the world.

I am still so excited and nervous about being out numbered with all boys. I'm sure it will be fun =)

I love the age Eli is at right now. Really don't want him to grow up too quick!

And lastly I will leave you with this...

We will be cutting all our toothpaste when we can no longer squeeze anymore out. We did that tonight and discovered so much more!

Exhausted. Hitting the sac!

Pictures & Growing Baby!!

A rare picture of the two of us (actually I should say *three*). This guy makes my heart melt!

Trying to get a belly shot!

**Notice dirty mirror** Someone needs to get to cleaning it!

the last two are of me dreaming of warmer is bound to get warmer one day RIGHT?

Will be back to "write" more next time. The boys took me out last night for an early birthday celebration. I honestly didn't think we would do anything, but Daniel insisted. Birthdays just don't seem the same without extended family around. Oh well...

Have a great day!
