For Easter this year we went up to Lima, OH to see Josh’s extended family. Everyone loved seeing Jonathan and he got lots of holding time with his great Aunts. He did really well in the car too. We stopped on the way up to feed him and the car battery died. We jumped the car and were back on the road with Jonathan sleeping peacefully.
The Easter bunny visited Jonathan this year-he got an Easter book, Chocolate bunny, Crinkle Toy, some snickers (for daddy) and a little blue bunny. He also got a package in the mail from Grandma and Grandpa Maag which included a cute bunny hat and bib and a sweater that Josh wore as a baby. She also sent up a blanket that she made which is now in the bassinet part of his Pack N Play.
This week we celebrated my birthday starting on Wednesday-Mom and I went to MOPs and then shopping for some things for Jonathan. She also let me spend money at Target and bought my Chick Fil-A lunch. Jonathan gave me my first gift by sleeping from 8:30ish to 5ish-YAY! On Thursday, Josh and I went to the Cheesecake Factory while Mom watched Jonathan. We then went to my parents house and had the best cake ever (Dad’s raspberry cream cake) and I opened gifts from Josh, Jonathan, my parents and sister. Josh got me new black shoes, socks, shorts, Lilies, and two pairs of earrings, Jonathan got me a gift card to Starbucks, my parents gave me socks, scrapbooking supplies, a new purse, and gift card to Starbucks, Casey and Tahnee gave me a Lush Bath fizzee which will turn my bath gold-can’t wait to use that!
After cake and presents we hung around for a bit and then went home to put the little guy to bed.
Friday we celebrated with friends at Claddagh and had people over to our house afterwards. We played Mafia which is one of my favorite party games but we hadn’t played in awhile. We were up with the last guests until 1:30 which hadn’t happened in a long time.
Saturday Josh played games with some friends during the day so Jonathan and I went to JCPenny with my mom to get our hair cut (not Jonathan’s yet). I am not thrilled with the cut but it’s ok, some friends like it to so that was nice to hear. That night we went to a party for Jordan who shares my birthday. We played the Thing game which was fun but a little too technical at times and I didn’t have the patience to wait for some people to make their guesses! Jonathan slept in my arms most of the time but would wake up if I tried to put him down for long. We left early so Jonathan could be put to bed but he was so off routine it didn’t really matter at that point.
Sunday we went to another Birthday party-this one for Teddy Johnson who turned one. Jonathan swung on a swingset for the first time!! It was so cute, we got video and pictures to document the milestone. He fell asleep in the swing though, guess he was tired from all the partying. After the party we went home for a bit and Josh and I continued our quest to get all of the star coins in the new Mario World game. We beat the game but are now on world 3 of 8 collecting coins. I’ve been having fun doing this with him. I then got a call from Megan about dinner and Josh didn’t want to go so I went out with Megan, Nate, and Sara to the golf course by their house. Dinner was good and we did a Tequila shot for my birthday…my favorite:-) It was nice to be out with friends and not have to worry about JT because daddy was taking good care of him. We sat at the bar for awhile too and I felt like a DD because I wasn’t drinking even though they had cheap pitchers there. We walked back to their house and I had to go home so I couldn’t go in and hang out more.
Now it’s Monday and Josh is off work-we are going to the park, get the car seat installed in his car and my mom’s car, mow the grass/kill the dandelions, and get things together for me to go back to work. Hopefully we will enjoy the beautiful day and time together before I return to work on Wed…tear.
