My birthday was the 2nd. Yep, I made it. lol. I don't feel any different, other than just feeling like time is just slipping away. I can't believe that two years ago on my birthday I found out we were having a baby. Now that little tiny bean in my belly is walking, wait running, and talking. It seems like just a few months ago that we were moving here to VA and preparing to become a family of three. It's hard to believe this coming April will mark three years in the Navy, 2 years in Virginia, and be nearing Xander's 2nd birthday. I mean, one part of me feels like Robert and I have only been together a couple years. Another part of me feels like it was an entire lifetime ago when we got together. In reality, we've been together for 5.5 years and married for 2.5. It's hard realizing that life is just flying by, but I'm trying to enjoy every part of it.
So for my birthday, I had a Slumber Party with the girls. It's kind of like a Passion Party--lingerie and bedroom accessories. It was a lot of fun. Then the guys joined us for a costume party. Robert got me an Alton Brown cook book, a reed diffuser, and season 6 of The Office on DVD. Then the next day (my actual birthday) he took me to get a massage and out to lunch just the two of us. Then we came back to the house and got the little man and headed to the botanical gardens. We spent some time there and it was really nice because it actually felt like fall. Then we came back home, made cookies, and watched The Phantom of The Opera. =)
It was a fantastic weekend. Here are a few pictures from the party:
