Today is my 35th birthday. I am officially mid-thirties. I am officially "advanced maternal age" (a term for moms to be 35 or older). I'm now even OLDER than David. He always gives me a hard time about being older than him........ especially since he's still only 33. So far, 35 isn't too bad. I've had a nice laid-back day at home. The girls are out of school today so they have provided me with lots of entertainment. They've been doing "shows" for me which have included lots of singing, dancing, and wardrobe changes. Here are a few flashback pictures:

Me at about 2 months old.
I've been told that my paci was taken away from me right before they snapped the photo.

Girl Power!

Poor David is going to be officially outnumbered. We finally found out yesterday that we are having another little girl! This little girl likes to stay balled up and really didn't want to let us know. The ultrasound tech suggested we go eat and come back. Apparently, that did the trick. The baby was kicking around even more, but still being very modest. Finally, she showed us that she is indeed a girl. David was joking last night that maybe she hadn't grown her boy parts yet. I told him our next pet could be a boy! Madeline is excited and Lydia still seems oblivious to the whole baby thing.
I have no doubt that David will adjust just fine to having three girls. He already does a great job with Madeline and Lydia. He's already worried about the teenage years. I told him let's just cross that bridge when we get there!
