Today, on the way to work (not with Layla in the car... I abide by all traffic rules with our little Angel in the car, trust me), I managed to come into contact with (not literally, don't flip out) about 38 different drivers who were sure that the left lane is now for lame slow ass Sunday drives in the sun. NEWSFLASH - the left lane is for those of us who are constantly on the go, who have a slight to moderate case of A.D.H.D. and who straight up just enjoy driving fast while blaring some sweet Christmas tunes, or, straight up ghetto beats.
There. I feel better. Tell your friends... if they see a blue(ish) Envoy hauling up on their ass, they'd be wise, to MOVE, BIATCH and GET OUT THA WAY!!

And here's a quick video of our little walker. She has made the full transition from a "new walker" to an "all the time walker". She's hilarious and always wants to carry something from one place to another. She is very determined and stubborn about this walking thing which is good and bad. It's good in the sense that I truly need to give my back a break from lugging her around, but bad in that when it's time to get ready for work and get her ready for daycare, it's really hard to chase her down and get her to sit long enough for a new diaper, clothes and shoes!!!

What a difference a year makes!! Here's Bean with her prize from Grandpa the day we got home from the hospital with her. She was two days old with her shiny new gun. Whoa mama.

Just a quick one here, but thought her face was cute once she fell on her butt. :)
And here's a random one. Layla LOVES shoes. She ALWAYS wants us to put her shoes on, no matter what time of day it is or what she's doing. She's definitely my little girl! ;) Here, she wanted to put my shoes on (yes, I'm aware that these shoes are ass ugly... They're my go get the mail shoes). She tried walking in them, but it wasn't working out for her so much.

On Friday night, Jake went to drill and was told that he was free to go and wouldn't have to come back for Saturday or Sunday's drill times. He was thanked for his service and commitment to the Army and sent on his way with a blessing to enjoy his life as a civilian. Very final and very comforting. What an AWESOME birthday present.
To celebrate the weekend events, Jake and I got a surprise visit from his parents. They hand delivered my birthday gift on Saturday, an awesome t-light candle holder / wall hanging thingie (okay, I don't know what to call it really but it's super cool and I saw it in a boutique up in Crivitz the last time I was there and told Jake's mom how much I loved it). How sweet of them to make the trip down to say happy birthday, deliver the gift and bring us lunch! Love you guys!!
Saturday night Jake and I had our friend and neighbor, Jenny, over to partake in some celebratory wine drinking. Good times had by all, that's for sure! Sunday Jake went hunting for a bit and our other friend and neighbor (we have awesome neighbors), Lori, took Layla bean for a while so I could make dinner for Jake and I (I made steak for Jake, fish for me, but seriously, aren't you proud!? I made steak!). Then Jake and I were able to have a quiet dinner alone. Which, I must say, was super odd. We both kept looking around as if we had lost something. We were set to pick up Beepa at 8:00 and by 7:45, I looked at Jake and said, "Okay, can we go get her now? I miss her."
This weekend Jake and I will be heading to Vino 100 for some wine and to the Ale House for dinner to have a formal Bday celebration. Should be a hoot. I just said "hoot". Yep, I'm 31 for sure. I'm old.
So, all in all, a super awesome 31st birthday.

You're 14 months old today. One year and two months. 60 weeks (I think). Our little baby isn't such a little baby anymore. Last night, I came home from work to you "little" Layla, standing in the living room, looking more like a little girl than ever before. You are getting so tall, and are really developing a funny personality. You do all that you can to make us laugh, and, when we are laughing at something totally unrelated to you, you start laughing with us, thinking that there couldn't possibly be anything else in this world that would invoke laughing besides you. I understand that feeling. ;)

This weekend was spent at Grandma and Gradpa Sherman's in Crivitz. Mama forgot the camera, so she doesn't have pictures to post. :( We had a great time relaxing and being away fromt the "hustle and bustle". Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma for letting us take over your house, and for all the fun stuff you pulled out for Layla! She had so much fun, that when we put her in the truck to leave on Sunday, she cried her eyes out. Grandma Sherman had so many fun toys to share with Layla - Uncle Jeremy's play kitchen set from when he was a little tot (yes, Uncle Jeremy had a play kitchen set, and he may want to deck me for calling it out on the blog), blocks, cookie monster piano, books, you name it. And all of it are toys from when the boys were little. So neat!! Thanks for the great family weekend D and Ice. We love you!!
