24

Yesterday was my 24th Birthday. I am not a huge fan of big birthday celebrations but I have to admit yesterday was a very good day! Everyone tried really hard to make me feel special and they did :)

I can't help but think about where we were one year ago. Things were horrible last year on my birthday. Peter lost his job the day before my birthday last year and I was just sick on my birthday and so afraid and upset for him. It just did not make sense. There were so many bad things going on in that first few months of last year and I was so beaten down. My birthday certainly did not feel like something to celebrate a year ago. Everything felt like a failure.

This year things are SO different. Peter is really happy with where he's spent the last 10 months working! Him getting laid off was truly a blessing! He would NOT want to be working at the place he was working at a year ago. I think almost all of his friends have quit working there now if that is any indication of the work environment. His new job takes such good care of him - he is spoiled!!!

We are also just weeks away from becoming parents and that is truly what makes me so happy! I definitely feel like we're in the last month of this "pregnancy" and I am so ready to see my baby boys face!!! Soon, very soon! We are both so excited! We are both guessing that mid-April will bring that amazing call, but we will wait and see. We've been wrong before :)

So all in all, things are great! We are in a bit of a hurry to get everything ready for this baby! It is hard when you don't know how old your baby is going to be!

I just KNOW this 24th year is going to be amazing!!!

Yup, this year's birthday sounds a lot better. Isn't it funny how things work out? I can't wait to hear more about the final stages of your "pregnancy. How amazing! Take care.
