The One About My Birthday

Saturday was my 23rd Birthday!! It was my first birthday as Mommy and I saw everything different!! Now that I have given birth to my own amazing daughter, I have a much better appreciate for the BIRTH in birthday. 23 years ago yesterday, my mom gave birth to me. She is the best mom in the world. She is strong and independent and a great example of waking with Christ even when the going gets tough. We spent Saturday with Michael's family and today with mine. It was really important to me that I didn't feel rushed with either family.

Saturday I woke up to my smiling little girl!!  We spent some time at my mom's house and then we went to McKinney for the evening. MamMaw made Roast, Potatoes, and Carrots for dinner. She even set Kinsey a place at the table with a small plate and utensils!! When it was time to open presents, I got some baby gates!! YAY!!! I also got some things to help me get back to working out (clothes, socks, cool shoes, headphones), 2 charms for my charm bracelet from my hubby and baby girl, and movies for Kinsey to watch while I'm doing homework!! It was a great way to spend my birthday, with all of my family!!!

 This is how I woke up to her... Houdini got her arm out of her pajamas!!

Birthday's are tiring!!!

Today I woke up to my smiling girl!! (as always) My step- dad came over and gave me a jogging stroller!! YAY!! I can't wait for this rain to stop so I can use it!! Then we went to my mom's house to celebrate my birthday! We watched football, ate Pork Chops and rice and homemade cake, and just enjoyed each others company. I got some comfy clothes for school and some precious memories of how big my sweet girl was this year!!! It was a great day of football and family fun!!
