Must share

I just had to share this story.
My heart broke as I read her words, but I also felt her strength.
I held my own baby on my lap as I read. Tears dropped from my face onto his head.
I know we hear stories like these in our lives to remind us to be grateful for what we have everyday and to love deeply.

For my 26th

It was a snowy Saturday so we stayed in as long as we could, but I really wanted to get out and eat somewhere. It was a good excuse to try somewhere new to eat. I wanted to try a cute little deli downtown, but by the time we got there, they weren't serving lunch anymore. So instead of driving around aimlessly in the snowy weather, we just went next door to a Thai restaurant. I'm usually a fan of Thai, but Skyler wasn't, but he obliged because it was my birthday. Thanks babe. We had a very pleasant time. It wasn't as good as my other favorite Thai place, but that's ok.

Westin showing his excitement for my birthday

I normally make cupcakes when it's someone's birthday, but since it was my birthday I requested we go buy some. We drove to So Cupcake (quite a bit out of the way) for some cupcakes.

This place is so cute. It's like a little girls dream!

We got 12.
Yeah, and they were all gone by the end of the night.

We ended the night with a movie. It was our first attempt at a movie with Westin. He was wonderful. He slept the whole time. I had a wonderful birthday with my new little family. Thanks boys!

Festival of Trees

Westin and I invited my mom to go to the Festival of Tress with us this year (or last year now). I hadn't gone in years; probably since I went as a teenager. We enjoyed looking at all the beautiful trees people had decorated. I got lots of good ideas for future trees of my own; down the road when I have more money to decorate.

We also got some sweet rolls. They were so good; probably the best sweet roll ever. We went back for seconds.

This was one of my favorite tress with the red, silver, and black.

shots are no fun

for baby or momma. I cry with him every time he gets a shot.

Westin @ 2 months

I found the cutest little crocheted infant hat at the Festival of Trees and just had to buy it. It fit Westin like it was made for him. I was excited to get some pictures of him with it on. However, he wasn't as excited as I was. I only got one or two good pictures of him before he had had it with the hat and picture time. So I had to get the rest of them once he was asleep. He's much more cooperative that way.
