Last year my birthday was absolutely amazing. The day before was our gender reveal party and we found out we were having Carter, not Emma. We had lots of family in town from the party and we all went to IHop for breakfast together. That was all topped off by an evening swimming in a friend's pool and then feeling Carter kick for the first time on the way home. It was a magical feeling. So really how could this year top that?
I'll tell you how. I got to spend the entire day with that sweet face! The day started at 6:30 am, a bit earlier than I'd like, but when you wake up to Carter's face it's hard to complain. I took Carter back to bed with me where we played and snuggled until he drifted off to sleep and I followed suit. When we woke up from our nap we went out for a run.
We got home, read some books, played for a while, Carter took a short nap while I showered and ate, and then we went up to school to work for a bit. I had tutoring that evening so Ty came home straight from work. He got Carter ready for bed and started the grill. When I got home I was greeted by Carter laying on the floor straining for a sparkly gift bag. The first thing I noticed when I looked at the bag was that instead of tissue paper Ty had used a burp cloth. We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed a relaxing evening.
Since we didn't have time to go to dinner after tutoring due to Carter's bedtime, we went out to dinner tonight. Ever since I've lived here Ty has taken me to my favorite sushi restaurant for my birthday. Last year I didn't get to go due to the bebe, so it was nice to start the tradition up again. Carter went with us and was very well behaved.

My birthday wish this year? For Baby #2 to be as sweet and perfect as our little man!
