1st time for everything

Well, it's official, Kate is sick for the first time. She just has a cold but it is still so sad. We took her to the doctor this morning and he gave us 2 prescriptions. She is definitely being more whinny but being a trooper for the most part. She has a runny nose, sneezing, and is all stuffed up. Feel better Kate!

Phil's Birthday

On Monday, it was Phil's 23rd golden birthday! (that's when you turn the age of what day you were born) so I decorated everything in gold. He woke up to a french toast breakfast. That night we went to a nice dinner at melting pot. It took so long though that we didn't even get to finish our meal because we had to get home to Kate but it was still really fun and just got a raincheck for the dessert. Phil got a subscription to gamefly, (it's like netflix for video games) new suits, and a book. It was so fun to celebrate Phil's birthday. We love you Phil.

new ride

No, we did not get a new car, but Kate did get a new car seat! I seriously cannot believe that she already too big for the one she has now. The new one can face rear and forward, so until she is 1 she will still be backwards. It goes up to 65 pounds, which is about 4 or 5 years old. I am happy and sad about this because we can't just carry her around in her seat anymore and just easily put her in and out of the car. We now have to take her out, which means always sitting in highchairs and shopping carts which is always a nightmare because she always gets into everything. But my arm is very happy about this because I don't have to lug her around in her seat anymore. It is SO heavy. My arm has popped blood vessels all over it. Kate, you are growing up to fast!
this was the 1st time Kate sat in her carseat which she is to big for now. this really shows just how big she is getting!

Love is in the air

Although I have never been a huge fan and Valentine's Day because I think you should show someone you love them everyday, it was still fun to celebrate it this year. We didn't do anything that special but we did get a new dishwasher and refrigerator and I am SO excited. I can't describe how much I hate my dishwasher and maybe this will give me an incentive to actually do the dishes. That night we made a nice dinner at home with lobster tails, shrimp fettuccine alfredo and roasted asparagus. It was great to be reminded how lucky I am to have a great husband who I love so much.

San Diego

This past weekend we took a trip to San Diego! Phil's parents were so nice to let us use a week of their timeshare. Thank you so much! My first choice was to go to Aruba but I don't think that would have worked so well with Kate, so we went for a more practical location. It was so fun to get away for 5 days. The first day we went to Point Loma. It was so beautiful there. The next day we went to La Jolla. That was my favorite. On Monday we decided to go to the San Diego Zoo but woke up and both thought, let's go to Disneyland! How could we pass that up with being only an hour away. We had a blast at Disneyland and California Adventure. Kate hated Pirates of the Caribbean but loved Buzz Lightyear. We even went back on Tuesday. We also became annual passport members so we can go unlimited all year long! On Wednesday while we were driving back we saw a Pottery Barn outlet and I yelled "We have to stop!" If anyone has a chance to go there it is amazing! We got all new bedding which we needed desperately, for a steal! (I hated the old we had!) We had such a fun time and I can't thank my in-laws enough for giving us this chance to get away.
