Yesterday I turned 37. That means in 3 years I will be 40. That is middle aged people! I don't understand how these things happen. I guess age is all how you look at it. I can choose to be sad and depressed about it or I can choose to celebrate and say the best years are still ahead of me. I choose the later.Last year we went skiing, whale watching, and spent time with friends at the beach by the fire pit roasting marshmallows. This years birthday was not exciting or glamorous but it was by far the best birthday. Aidan went to the doctor on Monday for his 6 month immunizations and well baby visit (He now weighs 18 lbs 6 ozs and is 28 1/2 inches long. He is in the 75th percentile for his weight and 90th percentile for his height- which makes his daddy very happy.) As a result of his shots he was a very cranky and sick baby yesterday. It was the first time he has ever had a fever, so I spent my birthday taking care of a sick baby. Clinton and I arranged for a babysitter so we could go out to dinner and a movie but canceled our plans. I did manage to sneak out while Aidan was napping and get a facial ( which was incredible!). Now you may ask yourself why this years birthday was the best ever. It is because I got to take care of a sick baby. My baby! That in itself makes it the best birthday!

Hey Kelly, Happy Birthday to YOU! The punchline of how you spent your birthday did not surprise me. You're a natural in the Motherhood department. As for the I'm-almost-40-middle-age schtick, CHANGE! Although I can't say I knew this then, turns out there's lots of truth in the adage women are like fine wines ... getting better with age. See ya soon... Renee Stern
