I haven't blogged in so long! Really it's iPhone's fault. It's just so much easier to use my iPhone which always has service. Our dependable neighbor with the nice, quick wireless service moved out. So now we have spotted wireless service (i.e. the account called "twobrosoneho" -- the name should say it all).
At any rate... today is my birthday! I got to sleep in this morning and my wonderful husband brought me a latte and doughnuts. This is our new tradition. My Mom always used to do breakfast in bed for birthdays and special occasions. But Rob really doesn't cook.... but he knows I have a special weakness for doughnuts and rarely indulge. The perfect solution has been born!
Plus he and Maddie got me some awesome books for my presents. He got me Watership Down, which I've been dying to read since Season 1 of Lost. And Maddie got me a board book on different types of cars (or vroom-vrooms as she knows them). I'm going out to Tea with Mom and maybe Maddie if she isn't too nap-ready.
Last year, I was very concerned that it would be my last serious birthday celebration. I was convinced Maddie would be born very close to my birthday and I figured that my birthday would always be the secondary celebration to hers. And this year, I feel exactly that way and am loving it. I'm so excited about her birthday and mine... just seems like a lovely day to kick off the Maddie season!
