today is my birthday. i am 28. that sounds old to me; i am old, not old like trevor...but still old. i think i am 22. when people talk about early twenties, i still think i fall into that category. but i dont. i am a mere two years away from 30. weird.
over the years i have had some great birthdays. surprise parties, planned parties, little parties and big parties. i have some fantastic birthday memories. but i am beginning to think that this year tops them all.
This year, i woke up to my daughter moving around in her crib. I quickly grabbed her out and the two of us cuddled in my bed for about an hour. i was woken again by a tiny little hand poking my nose. opening my eyes to see her beautiful smiling face was an incredible way to start my birthday. the rest of the morning was spent playing games and cuddling with my little chicklet. and when i said "today is mommy's birthday" i got a giant smile and a big clap. i like to think she understood me and was helping me celebrate.
i had two wonderful cards waiting for me this morning as well. one from my wonderful husband and a nice homemade card that little e made for me. she is so talented.
and at lunch time i received my gift from rhys. spain. i can not put into words how excited i am. i CAN NOT wait to go. two weeks from now i will be celebrating my 28th on the beach, sipping some sangria, watching my little girl enjoy the sand and sea for the first time.
yup. this could be the best birthday ever.
