Happy Birthday to ME!

Its 3:34 am and I am officially 34 years old and can't sleep! Not sure the actual cause of my not sleeping it could be one of a few things, or possibly all:

- Timmy woke up crying at 2 am, requesting a little mommy time. During which:
-Bethany was laying head down in my bed kicking me with her cold feet.
-Eric waking up wanting some love, moves Bethany out of the bed to hear:
-Gregory jump out of his bed, sprint across the game room and land on our bed in 2.2 seconds, I think beating a world record.
- Me no longer able to sleep decide to go check email and blog only to be interrupted by:
-Emily crying and wandering around upstairs, lost and confused.

So here I sit, hearing the hum of the computer, the snores of those soundly sleeping in my room-- just a side note I think we are going to save money and move into a one bedroom apartment--wondering what the next 30+ years have in store for me. Or even if I have 30 more years? Life is so fragile.

Well Happy birthday me! I think I better go sleep...but how about some pictures first!

This is me my senior year of high school on the swim team! Those are my awesome friends, Gen, Jen D and Anna. Hope they don't mind the swim suit post! Go Wild Cats!
This sweet one is of me at a year old. I am not sitting up because I have a body cast, that goes from my ankles to just under my armpits. Do you see any of my kids in me? Here I am at around 3 months, what's up with blue shag carpet?
This is one of the only pictures I have of me with my grandpa, my dad's dad. He passed away shortly after this picture was taken. I am around 8 years old, maybe 7 in this picture, anyway I was in second grade. I encourage y'all, myself included, when you have kids with your grandparents, or grandparents when you're with your grandkids, take some pictures!
This is one of my favorite family portraits! The late 70's don't get much better than this. I am sporting the lovely mushroom cut, my older sister is sporting Faucet Feathers, and who could be happier than my little two year old brother?
