Just An All Around Good Day (and it's only 3:20!)

This is how Ashton fell asleep last night. He must have been praying for a good nights sleep because finally at 3 months old he slept for 6 hours straight! (I think it's actually an answer to mommy and daddy's prayers) I was so excited to see 4:22am on the alarm clock. So hopefully the pattern continues.
And then my aunt brought Kaleb home from preschool and although my birthday isn't until tomorrow she took him to Wal-mart to pick me out something. He came in the door and yelled Happy Birthday and wanted me to open it right away. My aunt said that he picked it out all by himself. She just followed him around Wal-mart a couple of times until he found what he wanted. First he looked through the food section, then she said he told her it was by the underwear. Kaleb kept telling her he wanted to get me a white circle. She had no idea what he was talking about. Matt had asked Kaleb earlier this week what he should get mom for her birthday and Kaleb told him a bracelet so I'm guessing that's what Kaleb was searching for. After trying to decide between a pearl necklace and this silver one he picked the silver circle necklace.

P.S. The necklace is very pretty, he has great taste. And congrats on Ashton sleeping...that is a hug accomplishment!

Isn't it funny that when you have an infant all of the sudden 4:25 AM is the most blessed time of day if it's the first time your looking at the alarm clock that morning? Ah, perspective.

And I think it's adorable that Kaleb got you such great stuff and really seemed thoughtful about it. I think it's even MORE awesome that your aunt remembered and made a big deal out of it. What a wonderful relationship.

Since Amber left two comments I couldn't feel left out! Here is your birthday wish: I wish for you more nights with longer sleep hours and more strawberries, just for eating. Happy Birthday Old Lady!
