Today, I am 29 weeks along.
But, enough about the baby. Today, I am 27. Happy birthday to me.
I love my birthday as an adult. As a kid, I was just sick with excitement and then crushed with sadness when it was all over and I had to wait ANOTHER WHOLE YEAR for it to come. Now, a year goes by much faster and I just enjoy my birthday while it’s here, including going out to lunch with some friends, another friend offering to make the dessert of my choice, and a few gifts. It’s just a fun, nice day.
Also, my dad happens to be in town this weekend for work, so that makes it even better.
And we have big dinner plans for this weekend, which I am unreasonably excited about.
And. . . . a couple of other things to share:
- I wrote a post at one of my very favorite parenting blogs, Modern Parents, Messy Kids, about eight of my favorite books for adults.
- On Disney Baby this week – An Easy DIY Quiet Toy, Hiring Our Very First Babysitter, 9 Easy Paper Decorations for a Party, and Themed Baby Names in a Family.
- I love this post about the characteristics of creative people. It’s inspiring to me as both an individual and as a parent. For blogging inspiration and business advice check out the new Alt blog.
- Next week is our second Sisters Share It All post, and we’ll be writing about our current favorite clothing items (and a couple of ways we wear it). Just a heads up if you want to write about the same topic and link up on Tuesday!
