Yesterday we celebrated my sister's 24th birthday by playing some lazer tag and going to Red Robin. Andrea has been talking about how fun it is but the $8 per person price seemed a little steep for me. But I had a blast and was only charged the 12 and under price of $5. I know I look young, but 12? Joe said it was because it was a guy charging me and he and Grace were off at another table. Have to say if that was the case, I'm flattered. Even after childbirth, my looks saved me three whole dollars. Yes, I know this may sound silly, but ladies you know what I am talking about. I figure its similar to being carded when you are 45; kind of nice once and awhile. So what if he charged Andrea and Brad the same price. Let me have my moment of happiness.

... her first tooth. That's right, my baby has her first tooth. Just noticed it yesterday. There isn't much to see right now as it just poked through, but it sure explains all the fussiness lately. I think she may be working on another if today is any indicator. Poor thing. Any helpful hints from you experienced moms out there? Also I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about amber/hazelwood necklaces that are supposed to help with teething. Have to say I'm skeptical, but if it would help, I am willing to try. I will absolutely be posting pictures as soon as you can actually see the tooth without a microscope.

Today was one of those days when I wish I could just crawl back into bed and pretend the world didn't exist for awhile. But life doesn't work that way. Instead of telling you all the reasons today was so hard, I've decided to make a list of all the wonderful blessings in my life. They are a lot more fun to read about anyways.
- My daughter lights up my world whenever she smiles at me.
- I have a beautiful baby and a husband who loves me. How many years did I pray and long for this time in my life? God has truly blessed me beyond measure.
