    A Look Back.

Thirty One.

Hey – guess what?  Today is my birthday!  Thirty one big ones today.  Weird.

Now that I’m a mom, I find myself thinking about my birthday a bit differently this year.  I remember how I felt the day I had Cullen.  So much anticipation, hope, worry, and excitement.  I try to picture what he will be like at thirty one.  It’s so hard to imagine!

I think about what it must have been like for my mom thirty one years ago today.  Strange to think that she was having all those same thoughts about little old me!  (Although not really little – I was almost TEN pounds!  God bless her.)

And so I can’t think of a better way to share my birthday than with the person for whom today is also full of so many memories…

My mom flew all the way from Cincinnati to celebrate with us this weekend, and I could not be happier.  It’s so fun to watch her with Cullen, and I’m hoping I might even score a few extra naps…

Have a great weekend!

Oh Happy Birthday lovely lady. Oh to be 31 again!! Such a wonderful time.

Has something been wrong with your site? Today is the first day I could get in in over 4 or 5 days. Had no other problems except with your site. And still can’t get some of the pictures to come up. Very strange. Well, enjoy your birthday!!

Happy belated birthday.

In my family, it’s always been a tradition to say “Happy Mother’s(or Father’s)Day” to the parent on birthdays too!
