A recap of sorts

I've been really busy lately.  Not like, productive-busy.  Just busy with all sorts of day-to-day stuff.  That's my excuse for not updating...take it or leave it ;-)

Keeping up with EZ is getting to be like running a marathon, but thankfully, he's fallen into a schedule with sleep and naps...mostly.  I'm knocking on wood here, but I think we're back in the groove :)

Ezra has been learning and doing so much everyday.  His most recent new favorite thing to do is to play with the salad spinner.  He loves to push the plunger down, then lift the top off really fast so he can watch the basket spin.  He gets so excited and laughs when he does it!

The weather has been pretty great lately (with a few cooler days tossed in), so naturally, Ezra & I have been spending more time outside.  Here's Ezra last Saturday at the OB Kite Festival.  He had a great time running around, chasing bubbles & kids & balls.

We took our lunch down to the beach & then spent a little time on the grassy area playing some soccer...

On our way back to the car, we stopped for some ice cream at a local shop.  My Up-All-Night-Espresso ice cream was fantastic, but it was no match for the novelty of Jordan's ice cream waffle sandwich...

In other news...
He's back to loving his bike!

Last Sunday was my birthday.  My 30th birthday, to be exact.  Ouch.
Actually, it was pretty great - and surprisingly, being 30 doesn't suck.  Who knew?  It was a day full of my favorite stuff...We started the day with strawberry pancakes and a mimosa, headed to the beach, picked up some Chinese takeout on the way home and finished it off with ice cream cake from Coldstone.  The best part?  Ezra decided that his present to me would be him suddenly loving the water & waves at the beach!  He walked right in and didn't want to get out (despite the very cold water!).  The only thing he liked as much as that, was playing in the sand.  He could've done it for hours :)  'Twas a good day.
