Birthday Presents

Today has been a great birthday so far. This morning, Brandon showered me with presents. I had made him a list of things I wanted, and since he loves me so much, he bought all but one thing (you gotta save something for Christmas, right?). I was so beyond delighted. There was even one thing that I wanted desperately that he thought was a silly present, but he got it for me anyway because he knew how much I wanted it. Such a good husband.

He offered to take the day off of work, since I'm way more important, but I insisted that he go. After all, we only have five weeks left here and then we'll be together ALL the time. (I'm so excited for that -- those eight months are so heavenly.) Instead, Brandon made me breakfast before he had to leave for his meeting this morning.

I went out to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (my favorite restaurant) with some of the other girls that are out here for the summer. My friend Michelle was super sweet and paid for my lunch. For dessert, a Godiva chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberries on it. So divine.

The others had to get back home afterwards, but Michelle came with me to Kiddie Kandids. I had a coupon for a free 8x10 and wanted to get Caleb's picture taken since he is getting so much cuter and bigger every day.

Caleb was a trooper, despite the fact that he was so tired (only one nap all day today). He was fussy, but still gave the photographers several cute smiles. I thought it was a super sweet birthday present for him to give to me.

Now, the baby's in bed and I'm waiting for my husband to come home so we can go out to dinner together. We're even getting a babysitter so as not to disturb Caleb's sleep. (Well, my friend Jenn is coming over. Not that she should have to do much with the baby in bed already.) But I'm looking forward to spending the evening out with my hubby. Don't get to do that much anymore these days.

Here are a few more cute pics from today's photo shoot.

Such CUTE pictures! I especially love the bathtub picture. What a good boy to smile when he was so tired. I hope your birthday was really great and that dinner with Brandon was excellent.
Love, Mama
