Birthday Month

The month of March can definitely be called Birthday Month around here! Luckily, I am the baby and the last one to celebrate a birthday this month (the 30th). My father, on the other hand, is the oldest and he celebrates his birthday on March 12th. My mother is stuck in the middle, celebrating her birthday on March 22nd. The best thing about all of us celebrating our birthdays this month is that Eddie got to sing happy birthday and blow out candles three different times. His face just lights up with excitement when he is singing. And he is so cute when he keeps saying, "Happy birthday Peepaw, Happy birthday Nana, Happy birthday Mommy." He enjoyed being able to help all of us open our presents too! I keep telling him that he is just getting extra practice for when it is his birthday on April 29th. He knows when his birthday is and he knows what it means to celebrate a birthday. He knows he is having a party and he knows that he wants a blue cake ( I hope I can make that one happen). Stay tuned for the results of Eddie party! For now, here are some pictures of our birthdays!!!

MOM. Press Pause Please!

These are the words that I often hear from my son when he is watching one of his movies and has to go to the bathroom or wants to stop it so that he can play for a while. Every time I hear him say these words I think to myself.... Wouldn't it be nice if I could really press pause? I wish I could press pause right now in real life to slow things down a bit because little son you are growing up way to fast. I think to myself.... when did the constant conversation back and forth begin. When did you start problem solving because son you are quiet the problem solver. When did you start going to the bathroom all by yourself? When did you start laughing at parts of movies you think are funny? When did you start telling us that you love us too? It seems like everything you have learned happened overnight. You are so smart. You are so kind. You are so beautiful and loving. Daddy and I just want to hold you and cuddle with you and read books with you and play with you. We know that you are going to grow and there is nothing we can do to stop it, we just want you to know how much we love you and that we will/would do anything for you. "Press Pause Please!" No problem. Anything for you babe!
