We had a great weekend! Nick was in Chicago all last week so we were definitely ready for him to be home! Much respect for my friends that have to do that every week, whew!! We kept pretty busy while he was gone, but the nights definitely get lonely without him.
Friday was Finley's actual birthday, we didn't really do a whole lot, just hung out at home. We knew the rest of our weekend would be pretty busy so we just wanted to relax Friday.
Saturday morning, I headed to Katie's house for her 31 party and I'm excited for my new purchases :)
That evening, we had a wedding to go to of some good friends. We knew there would be a lot of kids there so we decided to take Cole with us. We left Finley home with our sitter and I don't think she was too happy with us. She gets super bored when Cole isn't around to entertain her so I knew she wouldn't be a happy camper. But, she did ok, and went to bed pretty early.
We had a great time at the wedding....Cole was an absolute hoot! He loves weddings, mostly because of the dancing. Yes, he's going to be our little Broadway star some day! We took so many pictures that night but they are all on the in-laws computer so I'll have to post those later. They did have a photo booth that Cole was crazy about. Auntie Em used one of the napkins to make him a cape, and then they had some masks as props for the photo booth, so Cole was in super hero heaven!
Here is just one of the pictures...I can't get the others to scan :(
We didn't get home till after 11:00pm, so Cole was pretty tired....however, he was up at his usual 7am the next day, ugh!
I don't know if I "accidentally" had one too many glasses of wine Saturday night or what, but I just was feeling off on Sunday, Mother's day. I felt like my head was in a huge fog, was so sleepy, and just didn't feel myself.
That evening, we met up with Nick's family for dinner to celebrate Mother's day. It was an excellent restaurant with yummy food...from what I hear :) About half way through our time at the restaurant, I started feeling super nauseous. With all the smells and food in my vicinity, I was not feeling well at all! So when everyone got up to leave, I couldn't have been more relieved so I could just go home. However, the awesome husbands that we have, had this waiting outside the restaurant for all us girls!!!
As soon as I realized it was for us, my heart sank....and I was also looking for a bush to possibly puke in. I felt absolutely horrible because it was such an awesome idea that the guys had, but I knew I couldn't go in the limo. So, Cole went in my place :) The driver took Cole and the girls around the city for awhile then headed back to our house to drop everyone off. Emily sent me this picture while they were in the limo.
I was beyond bummed I couldn't go along, especially because they said Cole had such a great time. But I didn't want to have to make any pit stops along the highway.
They did take this picture of me in the limo, so at least I got to sit in it :)
I started to feel a little better on the way home and I truly believe this was all caused by hormones. I am in the process of weaning Finley right now and I have had the hormones/side effects from hell! I never had that with Cole but basically I'm having all my old early pregnancy side effects again. NO....I am not pregnant!!! I have read that it is very common for women to get like this while weaning, it's just funny that it's way worse with Finley than with Cole. Girls!!!!!
Not sure how long this will last but it's no fun. I've been getting those ocular migraines again, every Wednesday, isn't that weird! Ready for this to be over!
However, when I see my cute, happy, healthy kids snuggling in bed together, I can't help but feel so blessed. I could just eat them up!
I also have to post this video. When we were on our way to dinner Sunday night with Nick's family, we had the radio on and Nick noticed that Cole was singing along to the song. I don't even like this song, so I can't imagine it's on too much in the car, but apparently he knew it. It's just so sweet because he's holding a rose and singing such a sweet song. Love this kid!!!
