We are still here

Ok so the whole month of February has passed with out a post. I'm sorry (to the handful of you who read this silly little blog). I guess I will once again play catch up.

Well, Feb. starts off with my birthday. This year was a big one- 30! Wow it still sounds weird to say, but I don't feel old so I'm not sweating it. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to share from my b'day. Kevin borrowed my camera for work and he accidentally deleted my pictures before I downloaded them to our computer :(. 

The  night of my actual birthday the three of us went out to eat and then I went to Sephora and bought some much needed make up. I also asked them to give me a "make over" while Kevin took Morgan to the Disney store.We finished the night off by going to grabbing a cupcake :).

That Saturday we celebrated again with a few friends. I originally wanted to go roller skating, but there wasn't a rink anywhere close by, so I settled for bowling. It was an interesting experience because everyone there had a toddler and those kids were ALL over the place. I think Morgan was the worst. She did not want to hang out with us...she wanted to run. The only thing that helped was the little ramp you can use to help you guide the call down the lane. I don't think anyone scored higher than a 60 because we kept having our kids bowl our turns It was fun though and I glad we went.

Other than that, February has been kind of crappy. We all got this crazy cold/cough that seemed to last FOREVER and then Morgan was stressing me out. She was really trying my patience at every turn. Thankfully, she and I have had some really good days this week and it is making me feel like "ok, I can do this". 

 She really likes eating cereal like this now. She also really loves to drink the milk from the bowl when she is done and of course make a huge mess, which is something she is really good at :).

We love that we have a park close enough to walk to, and even more than that we love that we have friends near by to walk with us.

We went to an open gym for kids ages 1-5 and Morgan loved it. This picture is blurry, but this is her running on the tumbling track. 
If it wasn't so expensive I would consider signing her up for a toddler gymnastic class. I really think she would enjoy it.
Brushing her teeth is one of her favorite activities. If I would let her, she probably would do this 8 times a day. I have to put her toothpaste high in the medicine cabinet or I would find a mess daily.

  She has to make sure her buddy is safely buckled in.
This girl LOVES cars and going "faster, faster faster!" I have no clue where she gets it *cough*KEVIN*cough*

A few things that Morgan has said lately that make me smile:

I walk in her room to get her from her bed- "oh mommy! I like your jamas!"

"Nice tie, daddy!" 

"mommy, you're my best friend"

"no, I not want to go to circle, circle" (while driving into the target parking lot)

I taught her what the traffic lights mean so she will often shout "GREEN!" trying to get the light to change so we can go.

She is learning so much and teaching me a lot in the process.
