My "Sweet" Husband
If you couldn't tell from the last couple of posts, I haven't had the best couple of days this past week. Not because of anything in particular, just some blue days that most all mother's go through. (My 4th case of mastitis and constant migraines haven't helped my mood....not to mention the swing in hormones from having a baby in general) Anyway, my sweet husband came home with a strawberry cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory and some AWESOME perfume called Bond #9 from Saks 5th Avenue. It is soooooo good. I love you Babe, thank you!!

My Yummy Cheesecake!

The Pork Roast that Saved Me...(and the rest of the family)

Every time family leaves, it takes me a while to re-adjust to life without them. Which is why I had absolutely no desire to cook this week. When I say no desire, I mean it was a stretch for me to put together a peanut butter and jelly. That dreaded glance into the refrigerator was almost more than I could handle until I came upon a little bowl of joy whipped up by my absolutely amazing mother. A delicious pork roast!!! Not only was I grateful to eat something without having to cook, Kate, Hailey and John were able to enjoy its tasty goodness.
In short thank you mom for saving me this week! I love YOU!

By the way, this little cutie is CRAWLING!!!

Thank you Grandpa and Nana for stocking up our fridge with yummy treats from Costco! Hailey loves these Minute Maid frozen popsicles.

Lovin' life after a good meal!

More Pictures.....

For some reason I thought I had added these pictures, but after I went through the long stream of pictures I realized I hadn't. We couldn't get Emily to pose for us very often!! We love you Emily!!!

Rigby Family Visit

We were counting the days until my family came and now it is already over!!! Nevertheless, we obviously took a million pictures to document this monumentous occasion. I'll have to admit my mom and I got a little (a lot) picture happy. This is a picture of my family just arriving after traveling all day. Hailey had fallen asleep, but we woke her up for a minute to see Nana, Grandpa, Annie and Emily.

One Happy Nana!!

You will soon learn that Hailey and Annie are hooked at the hip! Best Buds....Could be Sisters!

Annie and Hailey had so much fun together to say the least!!
Hailey loves her Grandpa!
Every time we watch "So You Think you Can Dance" Hailey has to dance too.
We had a fun barbeque with our neighbors!
My Dad had a Flooring Convention in Cincinnati, so we spent the weekend hanging out while he attended meetings. We had so much fun swimming, going to movies, sleeping, (the down comforters are awesome) and yes of course EATING. Thanks to my Dad's amazing Priceline skills we were able to stay at the Marriott in Cincinnati. This place was soooooo nice!!
Thanks Grandpa for the awesome hotel!!!

Hailey saw a huge puddle and had to wade in it/splash in it.

My favorite part of the trip to Cincinnati was when my Dad bought us extra tickets to the closing social/party of his convention on the "Belle of Cincinnati" boat. Oh ya, don't think we were trying to coordinate colors, we were supporting Go For Red for Cancer.

There were tons of games and live bands on the boat. Annie won a Nano i-pod playing Bingo.

King for a day?

Queen of the SHIP?

There were two live bands and Hailey took full advantage of them. Hailey was the only one on the floor "shaking her booty." Everyone couldn't believe how much she loved dancing, and how "not shy" she was. This little band played her favorite song for her, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."

More Dancing
Walking to our favorite little restaurant called First Watch. I thought it was crazy that it was only open until 2:30 pm.

We had to take a trip to the Children's Museum, we had fun!

John acting like a goofball.
