Happy Birthday To Me

Today is my 22nd birthday. It doesn't feel like a birthday, though, just another day. I'm not complaining though, because lately my normal days have been pretty damn good. :) I'm a new mom, spending days just feeding, cuddling, and enjoying my new little guy. Nights are mostly spent half-asleep as I try to feed Taevyn and get some rest at the same time. Mornings are usually spent sleeping as dad takes over child-care duties. Afternoons are usually spent cuddling both my guys in front of a movie, relaxing in front of the computer, or rocking the baby on the porch outside. I was going to go on a walk today, but the weather decided that it was going to rain all day, so I didn't. Chris completely forgot it was my birthday, and, while this would have annoyed me last year, this year I really didn't care. Besides, we both forgot his birthday last year. :P
I spent most of last year pregnant- it was one of the most challenging and worthwhile years of my life, but I'm glad it's over. I've decided being a mom of a newborn is a thousand times better than being pregnant, and this first year of my son's life beckons to me, promising to be even more challenging and even more rewarding than last year.


  1. Happy birthday!! Kiss your two birthday presents on the head for me. : )

  2. Hi and "Happy Birthday" a day late, but well intended all the same!! :-) Oh such sweet memories of my babies - each one so different and so special. My son was 9 pounds 9 ounces at birth!! He slept well and ate well - he was my third adn last. Oh they are all grown now, so savor every moment of this time of cuddling and bonding - it is wondrous beyond expression, as you already know. And I just wanted to say that you are an "OLD SOUL"... wise beyond your years.
    Love to you and yours
