Tonight, we went to Famous Dave's with my parents and brother for a yummy dinner and good drinks. It was so much fun! Then Carl and I walked around Target and TJ Maxx for a bit and then went to see Eagle Eye. It was such a good movie! I lovvvved it. What a fun night! I think I felt like it was MY birthday rather than his!
Lately, Avery's new saying is "'Scuse me, Mommy!". I mad us some chicken, rice and vegetable soup for lunch today and while she was sitting at the table waiting for her soup she said "'Scuse me, Mommy. I need a spoon!" It was too cute. She also drank her soup rather than using the aforementioned spoon, which is weird, but that is exactly what I've come to expect from two year olds. They are just plain weird. But also so sweet and lovable and fun. I really love toddlers, even if they are frustrating little $%@# most of the time!
I turned in my first paper for my English Composition class (thank you for the editing Becky and Em!) and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I just wrote it on the day the twins were born, but it's a pretty emotional story and I think it turned out well. I hope so at least. I have always thought that it could be neat to write a book on our NICU experiences and our preemie experiences, but am not sure that I'd have enough info to actually make it into a book. Plus, I'm not really all that confident in my writing abilities. At least, not yet. Maybe someday.
Tomorrow we are going to try to make it to church (for the first time in MONTHS!) and I am looking forward to it. It is always nice to see everyone and the kids love going. We are also planning on going to some friends house afterwards or possibly for dinner, where we are going to meet their brand new adopted daughter from Africa. I believe she is three, and in her pictures she is beyond adorable, and I cannot wait to meet her.
Have a good weekend everyone and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY!
