A Month of Birthdays

I always thought it would be fun to have my babies in the spring, so when their birthdays all ended up within 5 weeks between April and May, I couldn't imagine why that would not have been great idea.  Well, every year this 5 week birthday marathon about kills me off, but May is almost over and we survived.  We ate plenty of cake, opened too many presents and we soaked up every second of it.

Here are some highlights of our annual May Birthday Marathon:

Lauren's 10th Birthday

My darling Lauren turned 10.  I can hardly believe it.  This year for her birthday, all she wanted was go to the mall with her cousin Cora. I put together a mall scavenger hunt for them.  The girls had a great time. Lauren continues to be a total joy to us and her huge personality puts a smile on our faces everyday. 

Sophie's 5th Birthday

My baby turned 5.  (I am freaking out a little about that...I am definitely turning into a big mom).  Although I will never complain about the fact that I don't have to change poopy diapers, nurse, be pregnant, potty train or deal with no sleep, I did love every second of that phase, so it is weird to think that it is over for me.  But, Sophie is a delight and has promised me that she will always be my baby.

Here is Sophie on the morning of her 5th birthday.  We always have the kids go on a hunt to find their presents right when they wake up.  They love it.


Christian's 7th Birthday

My sweet Christian is 7.  His squinty eyes, the skinniest legs I have ever seen and his amazingly sweet compliments continue to melt my heart.  What a delight he is.


Whew, I am tired.  Although the warm weather has yet to show up, summer is officially here...but no rest for me.  We move in 2 weeks.  Although I have emotionally freaked out at least 30.5 times about our home purchase, I think we are ready. Bring it!
