I turned 40 the other day .... "mom you are so old" said Olivia "are you sure you can blow out ALL those candles?" ... yup because there were only 2 candles - one with a 4 and one with a 0 ... blowing them out on my cake went just fine ;-)
Two of my friends from nursing school came to visit on my birthday. It was fun catching up with each of them and lamenting the joys of studying for our final licensing exam. I feel ready and then I do not feel ready to take it. I have my appointment scheduled but am debating if I should move it further out to have a bit more time to get ready. Part of me says NO let's just get it done with and another part of me is worried about not being truly ready and not passing .. I have not have nearly enough study time to get ready as I have spent my time enjoying being back home full time, getting ready for Zola's birth and just having her in our lives. Sleep deprivation surely is no help either....decisions decisions.
This picture is from my birthday .. this little beauty is keeping me young at heart and my 3 older kiddos sure keeps me running too. I love all of them so much. It is very fascinating to observe the bigger children's approach and beginning relationship with Zola. They are all so different but they all love her in their own way - it is very sweet and endearing.
Then again how can you not just love this little face - I just want to squeeze and love her .. and take naps with her ... LOL
