Sorry I've been horrible at posting, and at downloading pictures lately. It's so easy to let the card get full, even with as many pictures as I take, that hasn't happened yet. We've had a busy week. Last Thursday, some friends from work came by for a pizza lunch and to see the baby. We had a good time. Then, Friday was our anniversary, filled with Cara's doctor appt, Eric's doctor appt, a trip to marble slab and babies r us, and home. We ended up having chick fil a for our anniversary dinner :) Saturday Cara and I made our debut back into society. We went to a baby shower for my friend Erin Lane from church. She had a great turnout and we got to see a lot of ladies from our ABF (Adult Bible Fellowship) class at church. Sunday, we went over to Eric's parents house and spent most of the day. Cara had her first pool experience. Eric, Amanda, Cara and I jumped in for a quick 10 minute or so dip on Sunday. I think she had fun and we took tons of pictures. Monday, Eric went into work for a little bit and Cara and I went to get my allergy shots. Then we waited around for daddy to get home and headed off to Cingular to get our new razr phones for our anniversary present to each other. We then headed off to JC Penney to pick up the portraits, then to Santa Fe. Mom's friend Tommy was gracious enough to fix Eric's truck (they had to replace the tension pullley--or something like that), so we went to SF, mom made her good enchiladas and went spent the evening with Aunt Bailey, YaYa, Papa, and their friends Kristal, Hailee and Tommy. Carolyn Adams (my friend Miranda's mom) also came over and cuddled baby Cara for awhile while we caught up. Tuesday morning came and we waited for the weather to subside a little and then headed home. Eric ended up not going into to work because it rained all day.

Today was a fun filled day. Eric got up and went to only took him an hour and a half because of the downpour he was caught in. Cara and I got up and spent a leisurely morning. Then, after the 11 am feeding, I had her sitting on my legs, while she looked around (she loves ceiling fans and windows). I felt a big rumble (I have been blessed with a baby that only poops about once every 4-6 days!). It had been since Saturday that she had a dirty diaper, so I thought this was probably the start of one. We have learned however, to give her a good 10 minutes to finish her business, or she will finish while you're changing her diaper. So I called Eric and told him about the crazy sound and rumble I felt and gave her a couple of minutes. In those couple of minutes, she had managed to fill her diaper so much that it came out the top. The only reason I knew this was because it started coming through her onsie. Needless to say it was the biggest poop she has ever had, and I got stuck changing it. That onsie got tossed!! :) After that, Eric came home and we headed to Bed, Bath and Beyond to look at my sister Bailey's registry. She has quite a few showers coming up. Then we headed to Kroger for groceries. I am happy to say I saved $30 in coupons/kroger plus card member stuff! I always save coupons sent to me (put them in an envelope), but I rarely use them (or ever look at them again) before they expire. Today I decided if I'm going to be home another 3 months, the least I can do I try to save us some money on groceries. Today I succeeded and it was fun :) Until she started getting hungry towards the end and I told Eric to just keep her moving while I threw items in the cart. Right now we are watching the astros game, getting ready for her last feeding. She has been great since our anniversary. I usually feed her around 9:30, she lays down at 10 and sleeps for 5 glorious hours!! It has been awesome. The first time she did it, Eric couldn't go back to sleep, he said he wasn't used to that much sleep all at one time. :) I say that was her anniversary present to us!

Well now that I've written a book, I will close. I will download the pictures tomorrow and upload them, check flickr tomorrow evening :)

Happy Birthday Ashley!! Hope you got our card yesterday!
