Ah Monday! How was everyone's weekend? We had a pretty fun weekend here.

Friday I made homemade macaroni and cheese since it was rainy and cold out. Hubs and I were both exhausted that night. I think we were in bed by 9 or 9:30.

Saturday we got the guest room ready for my brother in law. He's going to be staying with us for a month or so. We also did some other chores around the house. Then my parents came over and Hubs and I got to have a date night!

I figured it would be nice to reconnect before his brother moves in. It is always nice to have a date night without the baby. Obviously we love and adore Chase but by the time he is in bed I'm pretty much half asleep myself.

Of course we ended up talking about work. I had an epiphany this week while playing with Chase. I was giving him kisses and making him giggle and I thought to myself that this is my job. No one else should be doing this. I know there are a lot of moms that aren't as lucky as I am to have the opportunity to stay home with their babies. I just can't imagine not being the one taking care of him right now. It was nice to hear Hubs agree that he doesn't understand how people can put their children in daycare at such a young age.

Having to put our future children in daycare right away is something I worry about. I just pray that I am able to have the time I have had with Chase with all of our children.

Sunday we had a birthday party to go to! Hub's cousin's son turned four this week! He and his brother were going to wear their spiderman costumes so she said the kids could wear whatever superhero costumes they had. Chase didn't have any but I found a spiderman shirt on clearance at Target!

My little man ready for the party!

Chase had so much fun at the party! He ate his gerber green beans. I was excited he ate with all the people around. Remember the party was on Sunday so Hubs was planted on the couch watching football. Chase got to watch some too while I was eating.

They had a friend from church come and sing songs for the kids. It was so fun! He had drums and shakers for all the kids and I couldn't believe Chase tolerated the kids banging away on the drums. He normally gets scared by loud noises. He played the sweetest song that he called the cuddle song and I had to not listen to the words so I didn't cry!

We are really close with the birthday boy but I don't think he knew we were there until we said good bye to him! He was so busy playing with his friends. He of course wanted to open our present first because it had pez on it. I don't think he knows about the awesomeness that is the web shooter that we got him. I'm hoping we can go over Friday and play.

Look at the cool party favor we got! Chase is a little confused on how to golf. Love that little stinker!

Going to this party has me thinking about Chase's 1st bday. There weren't very many people at this party I think 23 rsvped yes and it was kind of crazy. I also need to come up with a cool party favor like this one! Chase's party is going to be sports themed.
