Today our vicarage church completely surprised us with a baby shower after the service. It was really thoughtful of them and no one can believe that they were all able to keep it a secret! We enjoyed cake at the church and then an hour of opening gifts and cards at home - after a nap, of course. Even Cade got a couple of books and matchbox cars. I am truly amazed at the generosity of the people here!

The balloons that got away!

One of the cakes. I'm not sure what kind of message they are trying to send us with this one :)

Apparently lunchtime without Daddy is down right boring! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine my little ball of energy could fall asleep at the table! At first I thought he was just joking when he laid his head down, but then he said he was going to sleep right there. He sat like that for a while and then I noticed his breathing was slower and he was no longer squinting his eyes to keep them shut. I guess getting up at 6 am with Daddy wears him out!

Thankful for a good eater!

The Lord has truly blessed me with a toddler who eats anything! Today he ate all of his lunch before I finished even half of mine. Now, if it was mac n cheese, that would be totally understandable out of a 2 1/2 year old. However, today it was a tortilla wrap with spinach, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, cream cheese, and hummus! And as we are eating, he asked if we were going to have salad, too.

'Mommy, can I have some sprouts? I like avocado. Are we having hummus? I like that, too.'

God bless him!
