One For The Books


Our little family (minus our furbaby)

Yesterday was my 26th birthday. Noah's mom took me shopping for the day and we had plans for my family to come over for a birthday dinner. It was pretty tough leaving Ava for the first time with daddy but Noah did great. She was on the bilibed the night before and I was hoping that was the last night. On the way back from shopping I got the best birthday news, Ava's bilirubin levels were low enough so she could discontinue the photo-therapy! I was so excited because I could go home and enjoy her again.
My mom came over and she made low country boil hmmmm... and pot stickers (doesn't really go with low country, but they sure were delicious!). I prepared chocolate covered strawberries and Noah's mom made me chocolate cake (which I have been craving ever since I was on bedrest). While we were all preparing our stuff in the kitchen, Noah walks in the room with an Edible Arrangement!!! I was so excited. Noah's sister and her family sent it to me for my birthday. I have always wanted one of those and it was a sweet surprise!

The food was awesome and the company wasn't half bad either. What better way to spend your birthday than with family. It was my first birthday as a mom and my favorite present was my sweet baby girl. I still can't believe she's already a week old. I really have to savor every moment because by the looks of things time is going to fly by!

Ava is such a great baby. She's my little monkey :)
This birthday was super special. One for the books.
