Yesterday was my birthday! I know, it may not be cool to tell yourself happy birthday, but I don’t care. I love my birthday! I strongly believe in being your own birthday cheerleader. If you don’t wish yourself happy birthday, how can you expect other people to? So happy birthday to me!
It was a work day, so of course Ben and I went to work. Then we continued our normal Friday routine of getting the grocery shopping done. Pat was sick again, so it was just Ben and me. I was trying to get everything done in a timely fashion, so I didn’t stop to take a bunch of pictures. But Ben can sit up in shopping carts now!!! I love it! It is so nice to be able to have him there without bringing the stroller or taking up the whole basket part of the cart with his car seat. As I said, I didn’t take a picture. However, Ben sat in the cart for the first time this past weekend, and we got a picture of that! It’s pretty much the same idea as grocery shopping, just a different store.
|He’s getting so big!|
After grocery shopping I fed Ben his dinner, then luckily Pat was able to get up long enough for my birthday presents. I got a new camera!!! I am so excited. I normally take pictures on my phone. This is great for sending them to people. But our phones are a bit old school (not smartphones), and they don’t have a ton of storage. I’m constantly having to delete pictures and move things around to free up space. I also take pictures with the video camera. More memory, sure. But the thing is pretty big. My biggest request for a camera was that it would fit in my purse, and this one does! I still have to read all the info with it, so no new pictures yet. Pretty soon I’ll have more, better pictures of Ben! Yay!
Overall it was a pretty quiet birthday. I can’t expect a 7 month old to party late, can I? 😉 Meo and Omi are joining us for a birthday dinner tonight. I am trying out a new recipe! Yes, I love to cook so much I am super excited to cook for my birthday. It is a good excuse to try something new. Fingers crossed it is yummy! If not, we have a frozen pizza on standby. 🙂
Thanks for all the birthday wishes from everyone!
