I’m 27!?

Yesterday I turned 27!
Pretty much since I turned 25 when my birthday rolls around I have to really think about how old I’m turning..?! I’ll blame it this time on the newborn coma I’m still in. ;)
It was a fun day! Ben and I took the whole gang to Qdoba for lunch.
A favorite with kids because it’s yummy and FAST.
and for some reason our kids are usually behaved there.
(We can NEVER take them to chili’s without someone or all of them having a melt down. weird.)
After lunch I was given my crown from the girls…I think I pulled it off right ;)
Loved spending the day with these sweeties.
Soo…27 with 3 kids.
(4 year old, 2 year old and 8 week old)
Sometimes ben and I are like wait… we have THREE kids?? haha.
They are fun. But I seriously can’t believe we have 3!!
I can’t imagine life without them.
Once you see their face when they’re born…
or hear their voice or see their personality come through..
in those moments you are like wow.. you are such an amazing little person!
I remember being a little girl talking about how I wanted to be a mommy..
and trying to picture my family.. doodling them.. and here they are! ;)
I feel so blessed. I love how silly and sweet they are!
Micah wanted to get in on the funny face making!
I always think of Shannon when I see a Pink Sky.
I think this was a special Happy Birthday from my angel.
It made me smile.
My cute kids.
Put one baby down and it’s another one’s turn. That’s life right now.
I shuffle babies through my arms. ;)
The girls are playing well together lately… Sophie was using my tripod to take photos of sienna with her baby….or they run around playing super girls and come to me for a mission. It’s a little exhausting thinking of a million different rescue situations. ;)
But… now that they are playing more together..they are ‘fighting’ more together.
I’m trying to block out future years of that and focus on the now haha.
My cute husband.
Celebrated our 5 year anniversary this past year!
Ended my birthday with Dinner with Ben and friends..
and some Cookie Cake.
My Favorite kind of cake. ;)
(Shirt from Old Navy. It was a polka dot kinda night!)
Thanks for all the birthday wishes
via instagram and facebook!!
Have a wonderful day.

    Only 27! I’m hitting 29 this year (with NO kids!) and I can’t imagine having 3. But it is true, after 25 you actually have to think…”wait, how old am I?” LOL Looks like it was a great day!

    Can’t believe you’re 27, thats my age! Did you go to high school in Pittsburgh? I went to CMU and know a ton of kids from Pittsburgh so chances are we prolly know a few of the same people :) You have achieved a lot at only 27! And what a wonderful family you have!

    I also have to always think how old I am turning or when someone asks me how old I am I usually have to think about it too. I think I’ve told you this but at my 27th birthday I had a 4 year old (girl), 3 year old (girl) and a 7 week old (boy). Almost exactly the same, CRAZY!! Wish we lived closer and I actually knew you (haha), our kids would probably have tons of fun. Anyway, it looks like you had a great birthday. Your family is so cute!! And I think I wished you a happy birthday on instagram, but if not….Happy belated birthday and I hope this year is full of many blessings.
