How did I get so lucky??? Every morning I get to wake up to this smile and every morning I feel so blessed when I see it:). Our little man is really proving to be such a sweet boy. For the most part, he is happy and easy going. Sometimes we feel like bad parents because he really likes to watch TV. Not that we just set him down in front of the TV to entertain him, but while Richie and I will be watching a show we will look down and realize that Don is watching with us. We are definitely a TV household. Richie and I don't really like to travel much, we hardly ever go out, so TV time is kind of our entertainment. We watch a lot of movies and have certain shows that we like to watch together. So I guess we are just training Don a little early:).
Don makes me sooooo happy...with a smile like that, how could he not?????
Rich's birthday, July 12th, fell in the middle of the week. We had been really busy the last two weekends and so Richie requested a low key birthday. He actually said he didn't want to do anything except hang out at home with his baby:). Of course I had to ignore that and make him a special dinner and do some cake and ice cream.
I love this picture below...Don is like, "Dad, what are we doing???" Richie's parents and Natalya also had to ignore the request for a quiet night and came over to join us for some cake and ice cream. Here are Rich and Nats enjoying some delicious Parmesan chicken...thanks, Beth, for the great recipe.
My little family:)...they make me so happy.
Natalya cracks me up in this picture. I guess she didn't want to smile for the camera, but she also wouldn't get out of the shot...who knows...gotta love seven year olds:).
It was a low key birthday but such a great night for a great guy. He said the best gift that he had was little Peanut. Richie is such a wonderful dad and husband and it was great to get to celebrate him for a little bit.
Sometimes I feel like my life is so crazy (in a good way) and that craziness should be shared with the rest of you. My husband, Richard, and I have been married for five years and we live in Lacey, WA, with our two dogs, Baxter and Lady. We are expecting our first child around May 10th. We are so excited to watch our family grow. I hope that you enjoy reading stories about my life experiences and find some humor in most of them. I am also an amateur photographer so I will be using this blog as a way to share some of my pictures with everyone. Enjoy!!!
