William and I celebrated our Birthday yesterday. There is something so special about sharing this day with my little guy. It creates a neat bond between us.
It was the big 3-0 for me. I have been dreading this Birthday, but it actually wasn't that bad. I am excited for my 30's and for the phase of life we will be in. I think it will be great. I never would have imagined that I would have just had my 4th child by my 30th Birthday. Crazy! I feel very blessed.
William turned 2. He is such a happy, fun-loving boy. He has a very fun and contagious personality.
He loves to be outside, and spends about 6 hours a day out there romping around. When he is actually inside, he is either watching Barney or Cars. His two favorites.
He is still a very big boy, and we kiss on his chub all the time. He is big, but he is extremely coordinated. It is fun to watch him try new things. He recently figured out how to ride Sam's scooter. He talks extremely well, and he has an adorable little way of saying things.
William woke up to balloons and pancakes...two of his favorite things.
I woke up to a nice card from Ben and some jewelry and chocolate he got for me.
We kept the day low-key, because Ben and I are very sleep deprived at the moment. It was also my first day alone with all of the kids. Ben came home at 1:00 though, so it was manageable. I am so grateful for his flexible job at times like this.
The day was filled with phone calls, messages, flowers and visits from friends and family. I felt very loved, and I know William did too.
Later in the evening we had pizza, cupcakes, and opened gifts. Ben surprised me with a fire pit for the backyard! I am so excited!
William got a Geotrax Christmas train, and literally yelled with excitement. It was hilarious and so adorable.
We had a great Birthday together and it was a great time to remember what life really is all about.
