They say it's your birthday.....

So yesterday marked the beginning of my 32 year *sigh*
Funny, 30 didn't seem that old, but 31 - good golly I am over the hill! I swear I woke up more tired last night than the night before (and, you better sit down, Ryan has been sleeping straight through!).
My actually birthday had the potenital to be crappy. Rob and I both had to work and Ryan was at the sitters, but it turned out quite nicely! I went to lunch with some friends - I had a delicious hummus pita, and got a great Law and Order coffee table book from my friend Dana! It features all crime scene photos - yeah, I am that geeky!
For dinner we had chicken fingers and fries - my ultimate favorite foods! Oh and my friend Pamela brought me a delicious HUGE slice of carrot cake! So I gained about 4 pounds yesterday!
The best gift was the phone call I received from one of my best friends. For my birthday she decided to give birth! YUP! A boy, Matthew Nicholas. 8 pounds, 20 inches and my birthday buddy! Everyone is doing well and I can't wait to leave work so that I can go meet him!
Sunday was my birthday dinner with family. I got some great kitchen stuff, clothes from my mom and sister, and the Muppets on DVD from Ryan. Oh, and he said "mommy" - not MA or Mama, MOMMY! I LOVE to hear it which is good since he says it all day now! He also kept saying Bopy yesterday morning and pointing to the stairs. I had no idea what he meant until we went down and he grabbed the balloons from Sunday's festivities and held them out to me and said "bopy". Hmmmm, okay. Oh and he calls the Tinkerbell on my PJs "doggie". I think doggie is a catch all for all living creatures not human in his world. Such is the life of an almost 11 month old boy!
So, to re-cap - food makes me happy, 31 makes me feel old, and my kid is a little weird, but still adorable!

Glad you had a good b-day! I love carrot cake too, so yummy!

You have quite a smart boy Andrea! He seems to be talking very well for not even being a year old yet, you should be proud(I'm sure you are)!

Happy Birthday!! Sounds like it turned out to be a good day; foodwise anyways! I love it when Scottie calls me "Mommy" even now at 27 months!
