The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.

Birthday Twins!

Gray has a friend named Catalina who shares his birthday. I vividly remember the day I found out that Catalina’s mom, Debby was pregnant. I had stopped at Target to pick something up after work before I picked Ben up from daycare and I ran into Debby. I was seven or eight weeks pregnant with Gray and she asked me how it was going. I told her I was a bit nauseous, but otherwise, pretty good. And that’s when she let the cat out of the bag (hee! get it? because her name is Catalina? I totally didn’t mean to do that.). She told me they had just found out the day before that she was pregnant too!

I was thrilled for her and Todd, but also totally excited that I would have someone I knew going through the pregnancy with me! Little did I know that baby Cat would decide she needed to see the world a month early and would be born on the exact same day as Gray, about 12 hours after. How fun is that?!

Anyway, last night we had a joint birthday party for the two. I swear, two is seriously my favorite age. They are just so entertained by the littlest things. Gray has always been a serious balloon lover, so I bought 12 for the kids to play with. Throughout the night, the loud party din would be occasionally overtaken by Gray’s shriek of “Bwa-LOON!!!” just for no reason except that he was so overcome with joy at being in the presence of so many balloons all for him.

It was a fabulous party and enjoyed by all. Check out the highlights:

“Oh Good God, Mother. Yes, I’m two, get over it already.”




Tell me that’s not the cutest birthday kiss you ever did see.

  2. If you can look at that boy without breaking into a huge grin, you should check immediately into a cemetery, because you’re long since dead.
