We celebrated Maggie's birthday with a fun party on Saturday. We were blessed to have many of our family and friends there including Jack and Liam's birth families! There was a lot of love in that school basement.
Matthew was not a happy camper. Took him to the doctor today and he has an ear infection. My sad little baby.
A future graduate of the Big Flirt University.
It was a Hello Kitty Day.
She doesn't seem too excited but she wasn't crying. Liam did decide to help himself to some icing before we were ready to serve the cake. Some things never change.
She liked her cake, icing and ice cream. Maggie was a happy girl.
Fun manicure set with dollars shaped into hearts - very neat idea. Maggie was thrilled to rip the hearts off the tape.
Reading one of her birthday cards.
Does this come in my size? Maggie is going to be a fashionista this summer.
There's a smile.
Jack and Meaghan kept posing for my nephew Christopher who had apps that, well, let's see, killed them with heat seeking missiles, bombed them, stomped them with a transformer type robot and let their behinds give birth to an alien. They thought it was so cool. It's obvious that we are fortunate to live in a country where planes that fly overhead are non threatening.
You go Miss Thing.
And Mike, well, you just go. He was modeling Maggie's crown.
My niece's artwork of her fish on display in the school basement.
An image of all the pictures from the parish directory made into the shape of the church. Somewhere on here are pictures of my mom and dad and my brother and his family. Very neat.
As you can tell, I haven't been faithful about updating this blog lately. These days you can find me at AdoptionBlessing.blogspot.com. I started that blog when we were trying to adopt a second time and I have decided to continue that one.
I had a wonderful pregnancy. Sure, there were a couple of things that
happened during those 9.5 months that were a little unnerving but
all-in-all, I was very lucky.
Here are the reasons I
wish I was still pregnant...
1. The return of
acne. So soon we meet again.
2. Having a belly like Santa's that
"shook when he laughed like a bowl of jelly."
3. The dark
parenthesis (stretch marks) on my belly.
4. A nice place to rest
5. Weekly ultrasounds
6. The excitement of not
knowing when baby Matthew would arrive.
7. And the number one
reason - feeling my son move within me.
are the reasons I'm glad that I'm not pregnant...
Hourly trips to the bathroom. (I feel like I have a guy's bladder now
in comparison to what I experienced during pregnancy.)
unnerving things that occurred during pregnancy
3. The delivery
4. The cervix check - oweechie.
5. The ability to
walk up hills and take stairs faster than a turtle. 6. And the number
one reason: baby Matthew in my life.
