So last week was Josh's birthday. He had drill the next day so we really didn't have anything planned. We went to dinner with his parents and it was delicious. I felt so bad cause I could not think of what to get him and I remembered I saw this cake in a book on my Ipad. I asked Jenna if she would help me make it cause she has always loved to bake. I went to her house on his birthday while he was at work and school. I think I'm really dumb when it comes to cooking or baking; I thought this would be a piece of cake...haha. But it wasn't. We had 3 unhappy kids and 2 adults with marshmallow fondant all over our hands. Britain crawled over Jack's face, literally, and we thought the cake was going to be a total disaster. And by the time we thought that, we'd already been working on it for about 4 hours. So, we called our mom to come help us with the kids. We finally finished and if you don't look too close, it turned out pretty well! Josh can solve a Rubik's Cube, which is why I wanted to make it. But anyways, I think he liked it.

And this day finally came... the day that Jack will play with toys by himself. Not for too long, but it's a start.

We sure love this boy!

I know it's been a while, the kid (above), makes it a little hard for me to do much. I can't seem to get the hang of things. Oh well, so my house is a mess, I don't do my hair, or exercise, or much of anything else, but we have fun hanging out together. I'll try to update as much in as I can.

So, I always try to get a picture of Jack smiling, but it is really hard! I'll get him to smile so cute and then the red light on the camera comes on and his face turns to this

and yes, this is a different picture

This is the closest one to a smile. He's a funny kid

He sure loves his dad. Josh can get him to laugh like no one else.

So, there's this new Carter's store that's amazing! They actually have boy clothes! I've had a hard time finding things for Jack I like. They have a good clearance section. But anyway, I found these sunglasses there and I love them! I think it's just so cute!

We got to go to Disneyland! I love that place, although I'll admit, it was a little hard to do much with a baby. One that needs constant entertainment, that is. He got upset when we were on a ride that stopped for a minute. It had to be constantly moving.

Here we are waiting to get off Pirates of the Caribbean.

The lights on the camera make him take such goofy looking pictures

He loved Pluto! He's really the only character we met but he wanted Pluto's nose so bad!

And that is how we all ended our Disneyland trip, exhausted! But we had fun :)
