Cornyval and the brave..

Weekend was fabulous!! Friday night we headed out to this neighborhood annual carnival called Cornyval! It was a blast! Addison is normally extremely scared of just about EVERYTHING! She finally got over it and rode on everything! Even the huge Ferris wheel! I am so proud of her! My little baby is growing up!!!

Kiki on Sunday laid down and fell asleep in my arms and we napped together all snuggled in bed. I actually got a little teary as I dozed off because we used to do this when I was nursing and she was a newborn and I was off work. It was just her and me.

Ever since I have been back from Charlotte, she just isn't as close to me as she was. She latched onto Thomas and that has been her security. Part of me doesn't mind because it gives me a little more freedom, but part of me gets sad and swallows the guilt like a bad drug. Either way - I feel like maybe she is finally forgetting that I left a little and is giving me another chance. Yeah Kiki!

We also took her swimming on Sunday! It was beautiful out and Addison spent most of Saturday and Sunday with her Nana Simon so we had some free hands! She loved it and her bathing suit was adorable!!!

Friday night we are off to Austin, TX to celebrate my big 3-0! I am so excited and am determined to lose 3 or 4 pounds this week before I go. I got my teeth whitened, my skin tanned and my hair bleached. Only thing left for my "dirty 30" party is 15 pounds to be lost...
