my nice day

I have to admit I was feeling pretty sad that Darren couldn’t stay home today.

It’s my birthday, people!!! I should get to have my hubby spend it with me. Hehe…age doesn’t make a person grow out of wanting to feel extra special on their birthday.


Also, each of these years–this is the third–that I’ve been away from my beloved family back in WA I miss them especially on birthdays. But who can’t love life with such a cute little boy as I have? In this lovely self portrait he’s enjoying laying on top of me. Poor preggo mama! She isn’t allowed to lay down for one second without being flopped on top of by little son.

So yeah, he’s always here to make me smile! :)


Daddy went out to buy milk and came home with a cake (and the milk)! I was so touched that I nearly cried. So sweet of him. Dear Daddy! We sat down and had cake and ice cream before he had to go to work. During the day Deeder and I ate two more pieces…OK, 2 1/2. YUM! I love carrot cake.

Thank you, babe!


I had to take a picture before I bit into the yummy-ness :D


My favorite bro called while Darren was out. Thanks, Phip. I also got to talk to my mom and Cadet. Then just before bath time Darren’s mom and dad called. I love getting phone calls! Thank you, too, people who wished me a good day on Facebook and here.

Having you all makes me feel a whole lot less lonely!

Cadet told me that she and Lyd could probably come when Carly’s born. That would be AWESOME and way rad! If I could have them to take care of Deeder Bug why I lay flat on my back and feel like crap–yeah, that would rock. They could bathe him, feed him, play with him, and take him to the pool. He’d love that! Of course I’d let them play with Carly too…maybe!


Remember that revolutionary potty training advice that Deeder’s pediatrition gave me last week? We gave it a go today. Deeder trotted around bare bottomed all day, and only had one accident. I couldn’t believe it! Happy day.

A couple outdoor shots, sorry if you’re tired of these:


The landlady’s porch, and the snow beyond


Corner of doggie’s house.


The neighbor’s house. Yes, that neighbor who called the police on dog!

Today was REALLY cold. But was the sun ever beautiful! I took SO many pictures :) Having good lighting for pictures is so groovy, without it I never get anything good.

Thank you again, everyone!

    Happy belated birthday! That cake looks soo good. I never was fond of carrot cake, maybe if I give it a try now, I may like it. I can’t wait until spring so that I can take pictures outside. I hate taking them indoors, since the lighting drives me insane!
