my birthday is coming!
Maybe you remember that I like to celebrate my birthday all month long? I've noticed that lots of other bloggers like to do the same. It's something I encourage everyone to try at least once. And if not this year, my friend, then when?
I've gotten just a little bit of grief from people who don't understand what I mean by this. I don't require that everyone celebrate with me...this is just something I do for myself. And have for as long as I can remember. I really love my birthday, my own personal holiday...and it's a time to celebrate the year before and anticipate the year that's coming.
Later this month, just a couple of days before Easter, I will turn 37. And I'm very excited about it. It's amazing to me that I've really been around for nearly 40 years. How can that be true? How?
On an unrelated note, I have an idea of something funny to do for Baby. He loves balloons more than anyone I've ever seen. I mean, just walking through the grocery store and seeing them makes him squeal loud enough to make other shoppers whip their heads around to look. He squeals and claps his hands and his eyes sparkle and dance. My idea is to surprise him some day by tying balloons all around his crib while he naps. I can just imagine how happy he'll be to see that!
The other day when he was napping I heard some funny noises over the monitor. I went in to check on him and found him sitting up and flipping through a book. Oh good gracious, am I ever in love with this little boy!
