You say it's your birthday....

Today was my birthday! It has been a great weekend - I couldn't ask for a better birthday celebration. We took Micah to visit my grandmother on Saturday, and they had such a good time. He smiled and showed off his crawling skills and stood up. I think she understood he was her great grandson (hard to tell as she suffers from dementia), but she kept saying how gorgeous he was and what a sweet baby he is, so in that moment, I think we brought her a bit of joy. What else could we want?

Saturday evening was just a quiet night at home. DH spent most of it baking me a birthday cake, and at midnight he surprised me with a tiny little chocolate peanut butter cake with a candle in it! He also gave me my gift - an ipod touch! I'm so excited to start using it.

On Sunday, Micah slept until 8:30. Naturally, he refused to nap, so at 10:45, we packed up and went to my parents' house for brunch. My brother and his girls came down to join us, and we had a DELICIOUS brunch! My mom made a french toast casserole, and we had bagels and cream cheese and lox. She made a yummy chocolate roll to top it all off. Micah was a bit cranky because his napping schedule was off, so he crashed in the car on our way back home. We were able to transfer him to the crib, and he napped for about an hour. My mom came over around 6:30 to babysit, and off we went for a wonderful dinner with some friends. DH brought a cake - a chocolate cake, with dulce de leche filling and chocolate icing. He even wrote happy birthday on it! He is getting much better at decorating cakes.

So now I'm sitting here, stuffed with cake and food. I am re-starting my diet on September 1, so I better enjoy this next week!
