It's official, I'm in my thirties.  I'm no longer thirty, but in my thirties.  There is a huge difference and when I woke up this morning to grab one of the tikes out of bed while simultaneously being kicked by the one in my belly and the one who wound up in my bed at 5am, I felt every bit of a year older.  I cannot believe how quickly the time passes.  I mean wasn't I just twenty-five and getting engaged, or twenty six and getting married, or twenty-seven and giving birth to my first child?  How the hell did I wind up thirty-one?  I mean I have a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a baby on the way.  Somehow I became a grown-up dammit!

Oh well, today was great.  My daughter has been running fever since Friday and has felt like crap.  So as she crawled out of my room, I mean literally crawled, I wished her a good morning.  She told me "don't tell me dat and leave me alone!"  I knew it was going to be a good day.  I forgave her and left her alone because she has run fever of 103+.  My little guy was happily chowing down his oatmeal and from him I got a "dood mornin' momma.....happy durday!"  Now that can make a momma smile.  After 15 minutes, my big girl came around and gave me a big kiss and decided to cheer up.

We had lunch at the fabulous McDonald's and then when Josh got home gathered with family and good friends for a roast beef poboy at my current favorite restaurant. It's my only craving this pregnancy, what can I say!  After that we sang happy birthday and then enjoyed a big slice of cookie cake.  Meredith & Noah gave me a beautiful necklace and some comfy pj pants.  How lucky can one momma get!

Here is my birthday party!

My silly girl!
