Birthday Celebrations

I had a wonderful birthday this year spent with family. The first thing Cambry said to me when she woke up was "Mommy Happy Day!". Greg had told her the night before that it was my birthday the next day, and I couldn't believe she remembered! I think she may have thought that meant we were going to a party, so maybe she was excited all night thinking about it. Poor thing. She is a sweetheart. 

Then later that morning Lainey gave me real smiles for the first time. A bunch of them! I tried to capture it on camera but didn't get a great one. 

My parents came over that day and we went to lunch at Panera. Lainey slept the whole time and Cambry did great chowing down on her mac & cheese.

The next day Greg took off work so we could spend the day together as a family. We went to Buffalo Grille for breakfast. 

Afterward we took Cambry to Monkey Bizness for her early birthday. We aren't doing a party, but wanted to take her to do something fun. She had a great time there and Lainey slept in her car seat pretty much the whole time.

That evening my Dad watched the girls while we went to Celebration, the Christmas show at our church. It was fantastic! We really enjoyed it and it was great to have a night out. My Dad was very brave watching both of them. Cambry threw a huge fit as we were leaving and Lainey was starting to cry so we said "Good luck!" and headed out the door. Haha. My Dad survived and we are so thankful for him.
