What a man!!!

Although Cason is my are some pics of my little man!!! He gets bigger everyday and is finding out more about himself too!!! I'm not sure what he weighs but today he is 5months. I can't believe it. It's crazy how I'm not as strict and paranoid as I was with Ella. He's been doing the whole rice cereal thing for a while but now I'm thinking he's ready for more.

4 Year Anniversary!!!

On the 22nd, Cason and I celebrated our 4th anniversary. I feel like it should be more (not in a bad way). This last year has been so exciting. We've had a lot happen with Cason starting a new job, having another baby, moving into a new house, etc...
All fun things that have brought us even closer together!!!
I am so grateful for him and for all the fun that we have. I don't think a day goes by that he doesn't make me smile and feel like I'm the most important thing in his life! Cason truly is
Every year we switch off on who plans the anniversary...this year was mine so I thought it would be fun to leave the kids for a few days (thank you mom & dad) and spend some good, no interrupted, quality time. Cason, being skeptical that I would find the cheapest hotel, made the hotel arrangements and I got to planning the rest!
We got to Marina Del Ray on Thursday, layed out by the pool for the couple of hours that it was sunny. Then we got ready for the night and drove into Hollywood where we ate dinner and saw "Wicked". I have been wanting to see it since it first came out in New York but never had the chance when my sister lived there. the rain and cold we spent the day at Universal Studios. We got front of the line passes (the best thing in the world) and all you can eat braclets!!! Saturday we met up with one of my old roomates, had lunch and met her fiance, then made the drive back.

At Venice beach! Our tattoos...don't worry...of course they're fake!!! And a cute seal that was next to the Pier!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

I am not very smooth with words and hopefully this post will let you know what a great mom I have! For tradition, every birthday we celebrate in the family, we go around and say things we love and appreciate about that person. Some of the things that were said were:
  • is selfless
  • compassionate
  • a "Great" grandma
  • appreciated now more than ever now that we have kids
  • fun loving
  • easy to talk to & a great listener
  • her grandkids light up when they see her enter the room!

My mom truly is the greatest!!! I can't think of a time that she hasn't been there for me! When I was up at school, she would be there without hesitation if I needed a shoulder to cry on or groceries in my fridge. She made every hard time in my life so much easier. Growing up and even more today she has always been a true friend and someone I can always talk to and get advice from. She has taught me so many things about myself and who I want to be. She is someone I look up to and want to be like!
