My birthday

Today is my birthday. I'm 31. That seems so strange to me, sort of. To all my high school buds - I can remember like it was yesterday when we all turned 16. I never expected to be blowing out my 31st birthday candles with three little ones helping me. They are the true gifts of my life - I may not always act like it, I may not always recognize it because days sure can be hard sometimes. But I always know in my heart that these three are the best gifts ever. Thank you, Lord for these children. Eli was just about to burst in anticipation of singing happy birthday and helping me blow out my candles. Before we lit them he asked me what a 3 and a 1 are when you put them together. Then he asked about a 1 and a 3 together. I am absolutely ecstatic that I am 31 and not 13! This is way better than that was. Thanks to my high school friends for remembering my birthday with comments or emails. And to my brother for his very special rendition of the happy birthday song left on my cell phone. ("Happy Birthday, Baby!"). And to my mom for always making over me (not just on my birthday). And to my sweet husband for always making me feel special.
We also celebrated little sissy turning 9 months today. I took several pictures today in what is about to become her room. I had to share one of them. I can't believe she's already 9 months. I just want to soak her up. I love my little boo!

I hope you had a great birthday. I have to agree that 31 is much better than 13!

Ella's level of cuteness is just absurd. She must take after her Uncle Kevin. When did you start blogging?
