As I was getting out of the van with Bethany, I saw our daffodils in our back yard and just had to get my camera and take some pictures! I'm so glad spring is almost here! Warm weather, time outside, flowers blooming...I'm looking forward to it!

Well, I am officially not in my twenties any longer! Do I feel any older? No. Many peaple have asked me that. I did have a fun weekend full of birthday celebration. Friday night my good friend Glo and I went out to eat and to the movies. It was so much fun! Just the two of us talking and not worrying about the kiddos. And I haven't been to the movies in forever! We saw Untraceable. It was very disturbing! It doesn't matter that the movie was not the best...we just had fun anyway! On Saturday my Mom cooked my traditional b-day dinner complete with my most favorite dessert in the world-Red Velvet Cake! My mom made me a lamp out of a wine bottle. A picture of it is below. It turned out really pretty! We had seen one like it at a craft fair and I loved it. My mom is just so crafty that she just whipped one up! My good friend Kyndra got me a beautiful scarf and made me a yummy Peanut Butter Pie! I have not gotten my present from Adam yet. He hopes to get our wood floors in the living room and hall refinished so we won't have to look at our OLD carpet! I'll take pictures of it when it's done so you all can see. All in all, even though I'm another year older, I'm not sad. I'm happy! I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls. What more could I ask for?

Today Adam had to travel out of town so he took Shelby with him to spend some one on one time with her. So I get to spend some one on one time with Bethany! It's nice and very much needed. Don't get me wrong, I love Shelby to pieces, but it's much different when having a second baby. With Shelby, I got to spend ALL of my time with her. And with Bethany...well, not near as much. It's kind of hard to divide my time equally between the two. After Bethany was born and I was trying to adjust to having two, I felt really bad because all my time and effort was being put into Bethany. Shelby was used to having my total focus. Then I worried that I was not giving Bethany enough of my attention and felt bad because I could not give her ALL of my attention like I did Shelby. Well, it's getting a little easier. I am an only child myself so I am trying to figure out this whole sibling thing. I love being a mom of two beatiful girls and am so glad I am blessed with this wonderful opportunity to be a mom. We're all in this thing together and I guess we'll have lots to learn as we go along!

Bethany just amazes me each day at how much she is learning! Just within her seventh month she has learned to: clap her hands, sit up well, crawl, say da-da and ma-ma AND pull up. What's next....walking?!!!! I don't want her to grow up this fast. She DID NOT stay a little baby very long at all! I miss her being little!
