Chuck E Cheese

So the above pictures are from a photo shoot I tried to do with Monroe- not the top one thats just a random one I thought she looked super cute in. I took both the girls to go get real pictures taken yesterday and they did really good! I was surprised. We dont get them till bretts birthday, Im really excited to get them. last weekend we went to Chuck E Cheese, where a kid can be a kid, we got a coupon in the mail for a pizza, pops and like 60 coins for $19- steal of a deal. Berkley had a good time. I think Brett had more fun with the games and she had more fun pullling out the tickets. sad thing though- I guess none of the Chuck E Cheeses have the ball pit anymore. I guess someone died or something- how horrible! I hadn't been there since... I dont even know but I remeber everything seeming alot bigger! I must have been pretty little last time I went. Anyway it was a big hit and we'll have to go back!

Her new best friend- she has a thing for people dressed up as animals- you think she'd be scared but no- she wanted to be in everyone elses picture. And she tried to get him to come with her to play-

More Monroe

thanks for all the comments! We are all doing well. And I hope noone was confused on the last post I didn't mean to imply that the labor was easy---definately not! it was just fast once I was at the hospital. I was trying to last as long as possible at home befroe I went in. I had 3 contractions on the way to the hospital which is only about 7 minutes away, So I think if I would have waited any longer we would have had the baby in the car! anyway. enough about that here are some more pictures of our little "sweetheart"! Berkleys starting to call her that!

for all the mama's---I stole this from a friends blog

Some homes try to hide the fact That children shelter there. Ours boasts of it quite openly, The signs are everywhere. For smears are on the windows, Little smudges on the door; I should apologize I guess, For the toys strewn on the floor. But I sat down with the children: We played and laughed and read. And if the doorbell doesn’t shine, their eyes will shine instead. For when at times I’m forced to choose The one job or the other, I want to be a homemaker But first I’ll be a mother.--author unknown
