I am extremely late on posting this. But on Saturday, June 20th (a day early) we celebrated Randy's 29th birthday.
Randy decided this year, instead of his typical Ultimate Feast from Red Lobster, he just wanted to go to the Louisville Bats game. Mandy was able to get the suite for the game from her boss. So that is where we headed
It was super hot this year. And me being the brainiac that I am, decided to get Randy a Reese's Blizzard Ice Cream cake from DQ. Randy's friends were nice enough to pick the cake up for me so Randy did not see that he got an ice cream cake. The sucky part was, it was so hot and the guys were stuck outside for a little while because we were unable to get into the suite since Mandy was not there yet. But thankfully, there was a fridge upstairs so the cake didn't get too mushy.
Randy and I had found out a week before his birthday that we were having a little girl. We decided we would tell his family the big news during his birthday. We were keeping it a surprise from all his family. We decided to have, "Happy Birthday Daddy Love Kylar" in pink icing on his cake. So when we finished singing, "Happy Birthday" everyone would see the pink writing and know that we were having a girl. Well, that did not go as well as I would have liked. First, I spilled the beans before the big reveal. Not once, but TWICE!! Secondly, everyone thought we were not finding out the sex of the baby until July 10th, so they were all a little confused as to HOW we knew we were having a girl. But oh well. It was still fun!
The next day we went to Randy's parents house for a birthday/father's day dinner. And Randy got to celebrate his birthday a second time. His BIG present from me was a gift he had been dropping "subtle" hints about for a few months! I was originally going to get him something completely different, but all I heard was, "I really want a camcorder for my birthday"!! I decided to be the loving wife that I am and get him his camcorder!! And as many people know, me and electronics are not on an even playing field. I do not understand them! Nor do I know what to look for! All I knew is the print out that Randy so subtly gave me of the camera he wanted was no longer available! So I was on my own! Being the resourceful lady that I am, I turned to my "online friends" and they helped point me in the right direction.
I ended up getting him a Sony Mini DV camcorder. And his parents got him the tapes for it. I am getting used to seeing my husband with the camera in his hand! He loves to "document" what he is doing with Kylar's room and just recording random things. Like me cooking dinner!! But like I said, I am getting used to it. And it will be really nice for him to be able to document our daughter as she is growing up. Especially since so many people live so far away and won't see her often.
All in all, I think Randy had a great birthday! He got the gift he wanted and he got to spend time with friends and family! Heck!! He better have had a good birthday, he got to celebrate his birthday 2 days in a row!!!
On a side note, here is the most recent belly pic! This was taken today, 8/4/09. At 27 weeks!! 13 weeks to go. I cannot believe that I am in the 3rd trimester already! It seems like time is going by so fast, but at the same time so slow!!
