Doesn't feel any different than 30. Not that I thought it really would, but still.

I still remember the first birthday after I got married and Ed bought me my first "wife" birthday card. And yesterday I got my first "Mommy" birthday card. I teared up a bit, it was so darn cute.

Ed took me to Atlantic City for my birthday this weekend and we had a great time. His parents watched EJ for us and they said he was an angel for them. Ed gave me my present when we got to our room...a birthday card filled with money to gamble. I was THRILLED!!! I love to gamble and barely ever get to do it. We played my favorite...craps...for a while, and even got in some roulette and blackjack. We saw a show, ate amazing food and of course had plenty of cocktails and champagne. I'm still exhausted but EJ is being great to Mommy today and he's just chilling for me.

So far, 31 is my favorite age :)

I'm an Aunt again!!

My niece Ella Grace was born just before 8pm on Easter Sunday. She was 7lbs 5oz and 20 inches long. It's so hard to believe my EJ was 2 whole pounds smaller than she is...she seems to tiny. Everyone is doing great!

3-month check-up and updates

First of all, I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!!

EJ had his 3-month appointment on Monday and he did great. He now weighs 11 lbs 9 oz (20%) and is 23.5 inches long (40%). He was in the 10th and 20th percentiles last month so he's starting to catch up to the averages for his age (slowly but surely). He also got two more vaccines. The first one was fine, but he was most unhappy with his second. Luckily I have learned my lesson from last month and I had his bottle ready to go and that calmed him down almost immediately. He loves to be naked so he enjoyed most of the appointment when he was just in his diaper while the doctor checked him over.

He's doing great sleeping. He goes for about 7 hours now, but sometimes those hours start at 8pm so I still get up around 3am to feed him. But luckily he eats and then goes right back to sleep until 8-9am. I really am getting a good night's sleep most nights these days. And he's usually good about staying in bed for a little bit so I have time to shower/brush my teeth/get dressed before we start our day. Although, there are the random days where it's lunchtime and I am still in my PJ's. LOL.

I guess that's it for now. Thanks for checking in :)

When EJ and the eggs all fell down...
