go shawty

it's my birfday.

I have never really been a big birthday person for my own birthday, which, is odd because some may say I tend to be an attention seeker the other 364 days of the year.

However, when I woke up this morning I must say I had a lil more pep in my step.

Maybe it is because I woke up to coffee brewing and I got to sleep until 8.....Matty is sweet.


Maybe it's because I woke up to them.

I know it's so cheesy
Trust me, I know.
But everything really does get
and brighter
and happpier
and funnier
when you have babes.

I confessed.
I'm one of them.
I feel a little bit better just knowing I said it.

I always rolled my eyes at the people who told me how my life would change once the twinks came.
I would always sometimes tune them out and go to another place because it's just weird to hear everyone telling you that.
What do you say?

Fast forward.
Babies come.
I am one of those people.

I am a cheesy person.

I tell people how their life will change.
I want my mouth to shut itself up.
But it can't.
I really can't wait for my pregnant friends to feel the love.

My justification as to how I am not one of those annoying people?
I know I'm one of those annoying people and, I preface my rants with things like:

"I know this is cheesy, but"
"you can tell yourself it's not going to happen all you want, but it will"
"it will happen and you won't even realize it"

In my mind that makes me not cheesy or annoying.
And, as long as I believe is true.


I mean, how can it not happen when you have two of these?

I love them.
I love us.

So, this year on my birthday I am spending it the best way possible.
With them.

With a lil Mexican lunch with the fam.

fyi - these angels now interact with each other in the cutest melt your heart way possible.....I walked out yesterday morning and they were making each other laugh.

They were taking turns laughing.

Like, having a conversation of just laughter.

For realz.

Silly Bubba, that is Uncle Michael's lunch, nochos.

Daddy will come home and we'll go to dinner and I will have had the best birthday ever.

I read this the other day in one of my favorite blogs and I now know it to be true.....
I used to want to be a child forever, now I just want to have a child forever.

Life is good.
