Well, I celebrated a big milestone last Thursday-turning 30! I was a little sad; I know it's just a number and I'm still young, but still, not as young....oh well. Will made it special w/flowers, a beautiful card and a yummy cake (which Ella greatly enjoyed a piece of!) Sarah, a friend from college whom I haven't seen in awhile, came over to have lunch w/me and we had a wonderful time-she's great w/Ella. Then for my big b-day celebration we went to the lake for the weekend and Ga-ma and Gan-pa kept Ella while Will and I enjoyed our 2nd date night since Ella was born. We enjoyed a movie [Superman Returns-suprisingly really good-I was afraid I'd be sad seeing it w/out Christopher Reeve as Superman, but the new guy did a good job and there was plenty of romance to keep me interested. :-)] and had dinner-delicious salmon! Ella was great for her grandparents-I fed her right before we left, then mom fed her yogurt and a teething biscuit for her 6:00 feeding, and we were back for her next feeding. It was great for us to get away, but we found ourselves missing her at dinner-we kept looking to where her travel seat would have been attached to the table. This was the longest we've been away from her. We're actually trying to work up to a full night out; we'd like to go to a bed and breakfast while Mom and Kenny keep her, but we'll see about that. With me still breastfeeding and Ella not used to taking pumped milk in a bottle anymore, not sure how that one will work. Maybe she'll take it in her sippy cup? That won't be until October at the earliest anyhow-Mom and Kenny leave for their Alaskan cruise Sept. 9! They're so excited-well, Mom is, Kenny's still warming up to the idea, I think! :-) I know he'll enjoy it once they're there though. Well, enjoy the pics-some from b-day weekend and others I just recently took here at home.
