We've been anticipating Heather beginning her teething phase for a while, but we finally have visual confirmation. A little stump of a tooth is poking out of her bottom gums! We are feeling a mixture of excitement and horror--we are so happy she's growing up, but we don't enjoy dealing with the growing pains. Oh well, this too shall pass...but we welcome any suggestions on how to make it pass quicker!
In other news, Stephanie just celebrated her 21st birthday on Friday! Most of the day was a typical day--classes, work, etc. However, we did have a special dinner at Stephanie's request--blue cheese & bacon burgers with homemade fries. It really hit the spot. As an added bonus, Stephanie's sister Rachel came over (for the long weekend) and watched Heather while we went out for a date to see Up. Unfortunately, it was sold out at the theater, so we ended up going to Blockbuster and eventually we agreed on Labyrinth. It has been about 15 years since I've seen that movie, and although we had a good time, I don't think I would mind waiting another 15 before watching it again!
We're excited to celebrate Stephanie's birthday and Labor Day with my family tomorrow! For those of you that aren't so close, we love you and can't wait to see you!
