School, My Birthday, and everthing else...
Let's see, I'm 23 now. My birthday was fantastic. I got a pair of BRIGHT yellow shoes from Hillary. THANK YOU! They are awesome high heels and very vibrant. My mother in law got me a TI-84 calculator...very much needed, a great gift. And my marvelous hubby got me what I wanted the most, an undermount radio for my kitchen. I LOVE IT. He kept telling me he wasn't going to get me what I wanted because he didn't get what he wanted for his birthday. (I LOOKED EVERYWHERE, PEOPLE!) But, when I got home, lo and behold, there is my new radio! I was so excited.
Joel is FULL OUT walking now...more like running. The boy only walks when he's mad. If there is food within like a 10 foot radius, he will sprint for it. He is so funny. He makes word sounds when I tell him things like "banana" and "food" but still isn't good at mimicking them. I think he's a bit behind Aurora on that aspect. But that's okay, no two babies are alike, right? But really, he's doing great developmentally. Physically, he's a bit on the hefty side, but he's just a big boy, he's happy and that's what matters. He loves popping his lips for food or kisses. I think it's funny how it's the same for him for either. He's still very huggy. If you pick him up, he will just grab you around your neck and squeeze. It's so sweet, the sweetest hugs I get.
Aurora is starting Tee Ball this year. She has tryouts this Saturday and then they will pick her team on the 29th. I signed up to be a coach, but I have no idea if they'll need me. I hope they do because I know I'd like to coach as they get older.
I'm super excited about the kid's birthday this year. I know it's still 2 months away, but I'd like to have the party at my house, and since it's not quite finished yet, 2 months isn't much time. I'm hoping a lot of my family can come up. My aunt said she probably would, but I don't know for sure. Lucky her, her best friend paid to take her on a 2 month trip to Australia and New Zealand. I'm way jealous, I've always wanted to visit Australia. I can't believe my babies are going to be 4 and 1. It just hardly seems possible.
Anyway, I'm rambling on and probably not making much sense. I know my grammar is probably awful throughout this whole mess and that's because I'm just writing what I'm thinking. So I'm out for today!
