It was my birthday

13 Jun

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day! Kerry got me a really nice camera plus the bag and a tripod. I guess the days of balancing our camera on books and magazines to get a family picture are over 🙂 I am still trying to get through the manual- but I did have fun taking some pictures yesterday. Plus, when he was out ‘running errands’ yesterday morning he managed to pick up a pink box of cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake. So yummy!

Kerry picked a great selection- chocolate ganache, coconut, chocolate birthday, vanilla birthday, red velvet and vanilla. Amazingly, there are still a few left but the ones we have eaten have been delicious. (I used the ‘food’ scene from the new camera)

Hadley and I went to My Gym yesterday morning and she almost fell asleep before we could get out of the building. All the excitement of running around, new friends and a trampoline were exhausting. She slept in the car and did not even wake up as I carried her to her room. After her long nap, we headed to a friend’s house to watch the World Cup game between U.S. and England. Miss H was fascinated with the two cats but they were not so amused with her. They hid under the bed and lucky for them- H was unable to squeeze herself under there (she tried very, very hard). I am sure the cats were happy when we left!

We ended my birthday with a nice Italian dinner and a movie 🙂

I got a nice new bag and earring from Mom, a beautiful necklace and earring from Dad and Kathy and Kerry’s dad sent me some money to spend on myself. Even my work gave me a really nice gift (technically I don’t think they realized it was my birthday) but it was really nice!

I feel so spoiled today! Thanks to Kerry for making it a great weekend!

15 month check-up

Miss H got a perfect bill of health on Friday! She is 31 inches tall and 21 pounds 4 ounces. Getting taller and staying slim was what the doctor’s diagnosis. He was impressed with her ‘talking’ and her ‘high level of activity’- (I think that is the nice way of saying she is hyper and all over the place). He thought she would not like him at this visit but she was happy to see him and very curious about his stethoscope. The two shots she got were a minor annoyance and after she was no longer required to lay on the table- all the tears were gone.

After the visit, we met friends at the pool and enjoyed the nice weather!
