Carrie and Kevin brought over this really fun game Cards Against Humanity. We played it for hours. Very fun! Its sort of like raunchy Aples to Apples. It was pretty hilarious. Of course now Steve HAS to have it. :)
So it was really fun and yummy night overall. I love hanging out with them!
Saturday we went to a birthday party for Steven's friend, Nathan. Nathan's parents, Matt and Sharon have been Steve's friends for a long time and I really like them too! Nathan's birthday is almost exactly the same as Steven's just a year ahead of him. It was really fun, there was a ton of good food, ton of kids, they have every toy you can imagine! And...then Steven threw up, twice. So we went home early. But not before Steven was SO adorable with this tiny baby that was there. I was holding her and he just wanted so badly to hold her too. I let him sit next to me on the couch and he just wanted to stroke her face and belly, hold her little hand. It was truly adorable. I wish I would have taken a picture. (Gives me hope for this big brother thing.)
Steven took a 4 hour nap that afternoon then got up, ate some, watched a movie until about 7:30pm and said "so tired, mommy". So I put him to bed. Poor kiddo. Must have caught a 24 hour bug because he was better by morning.
Sunday we had Steven's 2 year pictures with the amazing Kelly Reinholz. She is such a great photographer and always is so personable with Steven. She makes him laugh so much and us too! We decided to take the pictures at the Museum of Transportation because Steven is really into trains, trucks, planes, etc. right now. It was a bit more chilly than we expected but I think it turned out great considering we had a sick kid the day before. Steven had a great time running around and cheesing it up for Kelly. I can't wait to see all the pics! She put up a sneak peak already. And they look great!
