Thursday was my father-in-law's 50th birthday! And we are experiencing one of the bummer times of living so far away from them since we didn't get to help him celebrate - not that he would have wanted us there - as of right now, he and my MIL are on vacation by themselves. Yeah. We would NOT have been welcome! ;)
But I think the Nater-Tot might have something up his sleeve for when they come visit us in April. :)
Yesterday, my friends Leigh Ann, Melanie and Eryn (yep, that's how she spells it. Isn't that fun??) and I all went to lunch at Chick-Fil-A and then to a kids sale at a local church (no, they weren't selling kids). Nathan TOTALLY made out and got some new toys and I found a jogging stroller for a great deal! I'm pretty sure I heard my stroller sigh with relief when I pulled the jogging stroller out of the car - we have been taking nightly walks since it's been so nice out and it's been a killer on ours. :)
It was such a needed time of laughing and talking with ladies who are in the exact same place as me. And especially having some conversation that doesn't go like this:
"Nathan, can you say, 'BUH BUH BUH BUH?'"
"Close. It's BUH BUH BUH. Like BUH-aby and BUH-lack."
I didn't have to enunciate any words at lunch. :) We all had such a great time that we decided to do it again next week, except minus the kids sale.
Then we had Clint and Leigh Ann over for an impromptu pancake dinner. SO fun. Nathan has decided that everyone (and anyone) everywhere (and anywhere) exist purely for him to entertain. So he danced and laughed and talked for us.
