02/28 WEEK 30
I feel very bloated. I am sure it is very normal. Azalia is now over 3 pounds and growing like a maniac! I am still very sore and I have a 30 week Dr appointment later in the week. My exhaustion has slightly overwhenmed me after working on sanding the dresser and armoire and also painting the bathroom and her room with Daniel. Also, making dinner for Daniel’s birthday pretty much forced me bed ridden. I have been so tired to the point where I can barely stay awake at work. Hopefully my energy increases and doesn't decrease. I still have lots of work to do!!
Happy Birthday to Daniel
On February 19th we went over to Aunt Connie’s for dinner to celebrate our birthday’s. She is so sweet to have a little celebration for us. We had Mexican food which is of course one of my favorites. She also made a yummy cake that we made into strawberry shortcakes. Yum yum! They spoiled us as ususal with gifts! We got baby stuff which is nice because we need all the baby stuff we can get. They gave us a huge box of diapers and wipes. Then we got some baby clothes. LaReine and Grandma Cosman made a baby blanket, burp cloth and adorable bibs. Chere’ made a blanket and burp cloth. We definitely scored with the goods!!
The rest of the week went by super fast with us working on the room and bathroom for Azalia. I prepared for Daniel’s birthday and before I knew it his birthday was here!!
The day before his birthday on February 26th we celebrated with my family. I worked on preparing a pizza bar the night before and most of the afternoon on Sunday. I made pizza crusts and chopped up toppings. Then I made Daniel a birthday cake with his favorite cake which is rainbow chip. Then I also made ‘cup-o-dirts’ (chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos and gummy worms). Daniel opened his gifts after our delicious dinner and dessert. From my parents he got a Pass of all Passes to 7 Peaks, from grandma he got a Zelda video game, from Maddie and Jakob he got a really nice Element beanie, from my grandma Nelta and Mike he got cash and from me he got two Element t shirts, an Element belt, three more video games, a Greenbay Packers beach towel, and a new laptop case. He was spoiled.
On his actual birthday he had school until 9 o’clock. So the day after we went over to his moms to celebrate. She made us fondue! It was so yummy and I ate my little heart out. She put stuff up for both Daniel and I for our birthday. There were cute birthday signs and balloons everywhere. She gave us movie certificate gift cards and a gift card to Red Robin which was Daniel’s dads favorite restaurant. Ciara and Maddie celebrated and ate dinner with us. It was fun and we ended up talking for like 5 hours after dinner. So fun.
So Daniel’s birthday weekend was very fun to say the least and he got just about everything he could have asked for.
