1 month and 26 years

I started this yesterday....but its just getting posted today.......ah well.

Today was my birthday and Julia's one month birthday!!  Julia is a good baby.  Here is a video of her skills at 1 month.

To celebrate, I fed Julia, then Richard attempted to get anna to sing happy birthday to me.  No success she's a grouchy pants.  But she does like to do BELLY BLASTING YOGA movies with me.......if only yoga could remove the extra skin too.....

After yoga I fed julia and loaded up 3 carseats in the corolla (wow, thats intense, but doable)
and picked up my brother at the airport - he and his daughter E flew in from Denver to help me celebrate my birthday!

We went to a kids concert at Milagros in downtown portland and I fed Julia while we ate lunch.   Milagros is a little boutique - they had a little play area, doesn't anna make a nice mermaid.  Walking to milagros we past BEAST the really good french restaurant that I will someday be spendy enough to go to.  Anna was peeping in, all the chefs waved and loved it.  I thought they would bring her a snack like in lady and the tramp - no luck.

After Milagros, we decided to take a stroll around sherwood.  2 hours and 2 naps and a half hour at stella olsen park later....... we made it home.  Surprise!  I had a present and flowers at my door, thanks mom and kristin!  I felt so loved!!

Bryan made me dinner while anna and elizabeth hung out eating popcorn and watching Barney.

  After our portobella quesadillas, I had richard get anna to bed while I made my cake - grandma's lemon poppyseed (nicolized - meaning whole wheat with applesauce and less sugar = a savings of 100 Cal per slice).   100 calories is a lot when you eat 4 slices. Yes, I ate them by myself while they were putting together my birthday present (composter, bryan and richard are assembline it in the pic below - it took 3 hours - that's an expensive composter if you add up their billing rates!)

Pretty good day if you ask me!
