Disneyland and Birthday fun
For my birthday we went to Disneyland for the day. I figure we might as well do all these things now while we don't have a newborn!! It was super quiet and beautiful weather. We got there right when it opened and went right to California Adventure because we still haven't been on the new toy story ride yet. It was super cute and there was NO wait, amazing. Of course after soaring over california (my personal favorite) we headed to Disneyland to do the whole Dumbo tea-cup small world thing and small world was closed again! So annoying since it was open for about 2 weeks this whole last year. Bummer. But I had an amazing birthday, with my adorable family and enjoyed spending a day at disneyland without stopping every couple hours to nurse a baby. We ate dinner with jason and erin that night at Maggianos and the next day Jamie brought me my favorite cake- Red Velvet from Nothing Bundt Cakes. If you have a Nothing Bundt Cakes close to you and you haven't tried it, you totally need to (note i saw one in sandy and there is also one in Scottsdale)
YUM!!! Then the rest of the week went by too fast. Dr apt on Wednesday with both kids restless and my dr. decided to do a NST. She is super cool and I love her but my kids were going crazy!! After drinking a whole Coke and waiting 45 minutes the baby finally started reacting. She also referred me to another ultrasound with the perinatologist since I am still measuring small. He said the baby is in the 35th percentile, and looks great. So I am super excited, maybe he will actually fit into those tiny newborn clothes Cole never used!
Mike spent the weekend scrapeing the acoustic ceiling in the new baby's room (it feels wierd to say baby- I think of Cole since he's barely 2!) and painting. It looks really nice. We will probably hire someone to do the rest of the house because it was more work than anticipated!! But we are almost ready for this little guy and getting pretty excited! The first picture is Baby Addison and Savannah, she was so thrilled to play with her and kept saying "Laura is SO lucky to have a baby girl". green with envy...............:)
