Weekend Festivities

Last weekend was so great!  First of all, I never mentioned the trip we took to PCMC last Thursday morning!  Lex had another ultrasound and met with the orthopedic specialist again.  We got the GREAT news that she doesn't have to wear the harness any more!  We'll go back up in August when she's 6 months to get a pelvic x-ray (up to this point, she's been too little and her bones not developed enough for an x-ray, which is why we've done ultrasounds) just to make sure everything is still forming properly.  Then we'll go again when she starts walking to make sure everything is still good with that extra pressure.  Over all, we feel incredibly blessed.  The situation could have been much much worse, but she healed SO quickly!  I'm so grateful we live so close to one of the best children's hospitals!  Also, we never paid a penny for any of the doctors visits, ultrasounds, harness, etc.  It's such a blessing to have such awesome insurance!!!

Sunday was a lot of fun, it being Mother's Day and all!  DJ got me a pedicure foot bath, which is great!  I always have sore feet, so it's going to get lots of use! He also gave me a framed picture of him and Lex which is just adorable.  He made homemade bread and monkey bread all by himself for dinner, too.  He's so cute!  On top of that he got up with Lexsi 3 nights in a row so I didn't have to get up the night before Mother's Day or my birthday!  Talk about a keeper!

For my birthday, we decided to have a pizza and ping-pong party.  We brought my mom's ping-pong table down to our kitchen, which was fun!  Nikki and I played "Pop Pong," (rather than "beer pong," you know...), and we were both pretty terrible.  I think we ended in a draw.  

Lex loved hanging out with so many of her favorite people!

As is now tradition, DJ made and decorated my birthday cake.  Don't pretend you don't know what this is... it's clearly Princess Aurora! 

25 candles sure seems like a lot... I'm getting old!
 There was soooo much smoke...
 And yes, we really did need Nik to fan in front of the fire alarm so it didn't go off!

All in all, it was a GREAT day!  DJ gave me a pair of my favorite shoes, which is fantastic!  I have a pair that I got when I was pregnant, but they're a little big now that my feet aren't swollen.  So he got me a bright green pair in the right size!  I had a great time with all my family that day!

In other news... This little cutie is in pigtails today.  Can you believe it?  3 months old and sooo much hair!  I'm pretty sure I didn't have enough hair for pigtails til I was like 2 or 3 years old.  That lucky little girl!
