I slept horribly I was so stressed out last night. I woke up at 3 with Harmon in the room and so I got up and went to the bathroom. I than proceeded to knock myself hard in the head after losing my balance on a door knob.
I figured this is an Omen... but it wasn't!
Chris burst into the room early this morning (he gets to work at 6:30 so when I wake up) bearing my beloved McDonalds breakfast singing Happy Birthday. Harmon and I had been snuggling together and it was just such a happy moment. He even got the twins dressed and fed everyone breakfast so I could enjoy breakfast in bed. I even lived on the wild side and let Harmon watch PBS for 30 minutes before our nanny got here (we never have the tv on) which let me just put up my feet for a few minutes.
Today was a good day and we needed that. In fact so many of birthday wishes came true! Callum did some serious walking all day long. He is now taking like 30 steps by himself. I think he might be walking really soon. Harmon was a doll! So sweet! I'm doing 100x better about the whole Rachel thing. It is what it is and I think I'm over the general mourning. The only times I got a little sad was when I noticed her struggling to do some of the little things that she so wants to do (for exmp. when she was trying to get on the little school bus we have and she kept falling off). With that said she is just amazing and I can never lose track of that. She actually built a tower in blocks taller than her tonight! So finding peace with her situation has probably been my best birthday gift.
Chris put a bug in one of my good friends ears and so my friend put together a surprise luncheon for me today. I had so many good friends there, it was such a beautiful treat! It was so funny b/c it was so much a surprise that I was in a meeting when my friend showed up so I had to run out in the middle of it. Everyone was understanding about my quick escape. Tonight Chris and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings. The kids love it there and so do we. It was a great ending to a great day.
Oh and here is a picture of the party we had on Saturday with some of my family.
