Forgotten No More

Tomorrow is a big day. My Birthday! I will be turning a whole quarter of a century. The joke between the hubby and I is that once I hit the 2-5 he's going to be trading me in for a newer model ;-)

So far, my birthday has been great and the day isn't even here yet. HB was so excited about the cards he and little man picked out, as well as the gift, that he insisted I open them early. The card was perfect, one of those musical little numbers and it seemed like it was written for us {good job Hallmark} Anyways, HB is doing well this year. I am not the type that needs a huge celebration, or lots of gifts, but I do like the day to be a little special.

It was even more important to me this year that it not go unnoticed, because HB had some making up to do. Last year, he came back from deployment shortly before my birthday. We had talked in the weeks leading up to him coming home how excited I was to have him home for my bday. Imagine my grumpiness when my birthday rolls around and no mention of the day. I figured, hey, he just got home a few days ago, he may just need a little jog to the memory, so I didn't get upset right away. As the day wore on, he had work meetings and all that fun stuff, you know how reintegration goes. We texted a bit here and there and still, no birthday wishes. At this point, everyone in the Western Hemisphere, except my husband seemed to be wishing me Happy Birthday. I was so happy to have him home, but so depressed that he had forgotten my birthday. I finally admitted to myself that it was a forgotten day. I told my bestie, trying to seem as flippant as possible, but I know she knew I was sad {like a good bestie, she dutifully reminded the hubby what day it was, but told him not to tell me, I figured it out though}

Of course, HB felt terrible, but I was not in a forgiving mood. I wanted to be selfish on my birthday. I had built up in my mind what this perfect day would be with my little family reunited that when I didn't get what I wanted I pouted like a small child.
HB = king of kitchen
I think this HB's effort this year has shown that we have both had a little readjusting to do even if we didn't think so, but we have made it through better than ever! Thank you HB for taking the extra step to remind me that I am important to you. Love you! It seems this year I can have my cake and eat it too!!!

Birthday Wishes

I got lucky in the Mother in Law department. From the moment HB and I started dating she has been nothing but sweet. The other day, out of the blue, I got a text from her asking if I would be ok with the move and living somewhere new. She just wanted me to know that my friends/family are welcome to stay with them anytime they want to visit. {made my heart melt}
Anyhoo, today is her birthday! Little man and I got crafty and made her some special coasters with his hand prints on them. Nothing too fancy, super inexpensive, but from the heart! {and lots of fun to make}

Happy Birthday Gma! Lots of love from all of us :)

Happy 1st Birthday Lil GBear

My handsome lil Gbear,

There are no words that can accurately describe the love I have for you and how happy I am to have you in my life. You bring joy to your daddy and I constantly and I can’t believe that a year ago I was in the back of an ambulance giving birth to you (Way to make an entrance!). I’m sure that is just a taste of the excitement we have to look forward to with you as our son. So on your birthday, I want to thank you for bringing the sunshine into our lives, even when some of the days seemed cloudy.

In honor of your 12 months, 12 things I love about you. (Although this list could be unending, I’ll stick with 12 haha)

I love opening the door to your room in the mornings to your smiling face, standing in your crib waiting for me to come give you loving.

I love when you fall asleep on my chest and snuggle (although those times are rarer now since you love to explore)

I love your giggle, especially when we tickle you. Or you bop your daddy on the head with something. (I think it’s pretty funny too ;)

I love your chubby little thighs. And your beautiful blue eyes.

I love when you flirt with people when we’re out. You act bashful and then light up the room with your smile.

I love when you try and stick a toy in my mouth and laugh and laugh and laugh (even if it just falls to the ground)

I love your sense of adventure~ you love to explore new places~ but I love even more when you look over your shoulder for me as you crawl to your next adventure.

I love your newfound obsession with spoons. Who needs fancy toys when you have a plastic spoon?

I love your yummy food dance.

I love watching you learn new skills. You are so close to walking, but just not ready to let go (and neither am I!) And now you're blowing raspberries, so cute!

I love when you crawl over me and explore my face, putting your chubby little baby hand on my nose, my mouth, my ears, just giggling all the while.

I love bath time. You love to be in the bath so much and I love seeing you so happy.

Thank you for bringing such happiness to my life. You kept me going while your daddy was deployed and now that he’s back home you make our little family so happy. I love you always and forever! Happy Birthday Lil Gbear....quit growing so fast!   ;)

Love, Mama Bear

*I scheduled this post so that it would coincide with when he was born ;) Daddy, Lil Gbear and I are celebrating at Daddy's work Christmas party
