Jeremy and I got to have a much needed date night Friday night. He said I got to pick where we went. So where did I want to go? No where but the PBR! I LOVE watching Professional Bull Riding on TV and since it was in town I thought it was perfect. For me it's like watching a train wreck in that you can't take your eyes off of it because these people are CRAZY! I mean who wants to get on a 1500lb bull and try to hang on and then have to get off/fall off without the bull smushing you to pieces. Amazing! Anyway we had a fabulous time and am so glad I got to spend it with my honey!
Poor bull did not want to go back in his pen
My handsome date
This is why you don't ride bulls. They step on you and SHATTER your knee!
We took both the girls for their annual checkups on Monday. All was going well until....the finger pricks and shots. Soooooo downhill from there. And Ella had to pee in a cup! I can't believe she's old enough to be doing that now. But both girls are very healthy and everything is going well and normal. Here are their stats:
We celebrated Megan's 1st birthday with friends and family this past Sunday. It was so nice to get together and see everyone. Megan had a great time and definitely did not want to get dirty with the cake. It was such a different experience than with Ella's 1st birthday. We had to hose Ella off. But we are so proud of our baby girl and wish her a very happy first birthday!!
Megan, you are ONE YEAR OLD today!!! Where has the past year gone? You have been such an easy baby (compared to that sister of yours). :) We've had no hospital visits, no turning blue spells, and no RSV. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have been such a delight and another love of our lives. You have been tolerating your sister well until recently. She seems to be completely annoying you so you have learned to bite in order to protect yourself. However, your father and I don't condone biting (and you get your punishment) but at the same time I don't blame you. :) You're so smart and strong willed. And you're tough as nails! When you fall or bang into something it doesn't phase you. You are so fun to get in the morning. You're so excited to see us when we walk in even though you can't really see us because you're hair is in your face because you have SO MUCH of it! We are so blessed to have you in our lives and can't imagine you not in it! We love you so much and can't wait to watch you grow and see the special things you have in store for you. Happy Birthday sweet girl!!
1 year old
Birthday (Just a reminder that your mother birthed you with NO MEDICATION!) :)
We celebrated Ella's 3rd birthday with friends and family at River City Gymnastics. It was a lot of fun! She had a ball and loved hanging out with everyone. Thank you to everyone that came and made her day special. It meant the world to us to have you there.
Always using that tongue
