Belated.
August 07, 2009

Yesterday was my birthday.

There was not a single exciting thing about this year’s birthday.  I spent most of the day half-naked on the couch while Charlotte slept on my chest or chomped on my nipple.  What wasn’t spent half-naked on the couch was spent half-naked on the bed or half-naked doing laundry.  Or half-naked THINKING about how once upon a time I was able to do laundry, but now it takes me a full day to drop a single load in the washer.

Best.  Birthday.  Ever.

    Happy Birthday! Sometimes a quiet day is as good as a busy one! It was my birthday too… I wish I could get as much enjoyment from birthdays as I used to as a kid! Xxx

    Happy Birthday my dear. They are never quite the same after you have given birth yourself. Think of your mom, so young and struggling with the new demands of motherhood, just as you are now.
      And that day long laundry experience? I switched pediatricians after mine complained that her sister just let her nephew run her life. I asked how old is he? 5 months. Well duh. It’s normal, and things will get back on track. Munching on baby or sorting socks? A no brainer.

    Happy Birthday! I think a lot of women, well men too probably, would love to spend their birthday half-naked.

    Happy Belated Birthday. But you now have a little one that you can kiss and touch and snuggle with for your birthday gift. What better gift is there…. Happy Birthday…
    P.S. I still want to smell Miss. Charlotte ;)

    Happy belated birthday!  Mine this year was spent hugely pregnant and nesting, and it was wonderful.  Funny how the kiddos can change everything.

    Charlotte just keeps on getting cuter.  She has such an old, wise face.  Keep those pictures coming!

    Happy Birthday!!!

    I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a birthday. Well, I can’t say I’d want my son chomping on my nipple, but I think you’re picking up what I’m putting down.

    Well, Happy Belated Birthday… and she is GORGEOUS!!!!  Congrats on a beautiful baby girl.  It really is amazing how much longer it takes to do ANYTHING with a newborn, haha.  I’m so happy for you though!
