Best Bday Present Ever

So my sweet hubby bought me an AMAZING new camera for my birthday. It is a Nikon D5000, and I can't wait to take some new pictures of our little angel! I have been wanting a new camera since I got pregnant and Chris finally made it happen. I will never be able to figure out all of the incredible features of this new toy, but hopefully I will be able to figure out enough to start taking some really good, quality photos!

He also made me a giant cupcake. That's right. As Seen On TV giant cupcake. It was so sweet of him to do, and it was delicious. A nice, quiet family evening is just what I needed. So, look for some good pics in the near future.

So, my mom has been coming out to take care of Kate 2 days a week while Chris and I both work. During the summer she told me how much she missed her time with Kate and how she was ready for me to go back to work so that she could start seeing Kate regularly again. What I didn't realize until she was here today, and getting ready to leave, was how much I missed seeing my Mom on a regular basis. I have come to appreciate her so much more now that I know the blessing that is being a mother. I could just sit here and talk to her for hours. I am grateful, and appreciative every day. I know that we are blessed to not have to put Kate in daycare and I sometimes worry that I cannot adequately express my gratitude.
