Happy Birthday My Mommy!

A pleasing pile of pancakes. I tossed in a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter for extra goodness!

A burrito for Charlie! Remember my post about his poor eating habits? They seemed to have disappeared this week! Instead of picking up the burrito and eating it whole, he tore into it and ate it piece by piece. I mean, is there any other way a pre toddler eats? Did I care, no because it lead to this:

He usually has water with every meal, but this week he's been given lots of Pedialyte due to the recent stomach virus. I read that giving juice during meals can act as a filler and prohibit healthy eating.

Falling asleep in Grandma's arms.

A tired boy!

Today is my Mommy's birthday. She is...just kidding Mom! We started the day with a pancake breakfast, at her request. We threw together a variety of leftovers for lunch and headed out for a night on the town, just us girls! We mulled over life while sipping our coffees during a pedicure. We tossed around creative ideas as we shopped at Hobby Lobby. We satisfied our hunger at a restaurant where neither of us had dined before. It was a lovely evening spent with a most lovely lady. I love you mom!

Thanks for the comment! :)

Haha I try to be one of those girls who make lemonade out of lemons, but let me tell you it took a lot of prayer when I heard that he was joining the Air Force. Now I am happy and satisfies that I am in God's will, but in the beginning, I felt like my whole life was turned upside down!

Your prayers are appreciated by all the military families I know. There are so many hurting families out there and so many stories I could tell that make my heart sad.

That was a pretty clever post! haha don't feel bad, I am exactly the same way when it comes to my laptop! :)

Have a great night, and super cute pics by the way too!
