In the afternoons, when we get home, Nora likes to visit her "flower garden", as she calls it. Here she is basking in her flower garden.
|Flowers for mommy!|
|Brandy wants in on the flower action.|
|Don't judge- I change into PJs as soon as I get home most afternoons!|
|Omg, that dimple. I could eat it.|
On Saturday, before the Little Gym, we joined Amelia, Allison, and Hugh for lunch at Tomato Head. After the gym, we took the girls for frozen yogurt at Yogli Mogli. As usual, they were so silly together.
Nora must have played extra hard that morning because we didn't even make it home for nap time.
She took an hour and a half car nap, and then she slept for another hour in my arms in the recliner before heading over to Kaitlyn's for a sleepover. Yes, a sleepover. Jessica offered to keep Nora over night so Brad and I could go out and celebrate my birthday, which is on Tuesday. We went to Cheesecake Factory and then watched a movie at home before going to bed and sleeping through the night in my own bed for the first time in..... I have no idea the last time I got to sleep in my own bed all night. It was glorious.
Today, we had a little family birthday lunch (for Nora and me) at Dede and Grandpa's. For the 2nd week in a row, we got to see Naomi. Sunday is probably my most favorite day of the week now for this reason. Elisabeth and Patrick gave Nora her 3rd Precious Moments birthday train piece, and Dede and Grandpa gave both of us gift cards to Kohls. Nora ate just a little lunch but a generous amount of cake and ice cream.
I'm looking forward to week fourteen when we'll officially celebrate both of our birthdays-- her 3rd and my (gulp) 37th.
