Apparently August 4th is a popular day to have a baby. Friends Cheryl & Courtney have birthdays today, my ASL teacher’s birthday is also today. There is also a handful of famous people who share their day of birth Barack Obama, Cole & Dylan Sprouse, Louis Armstrong and the Queen Mother Elizabeth to name a few. But (sorry) none of those are as important as two people in my family…..
My Daddy & Annika
I love my daddy!! His birthday always was important to me, not because I love my daddy and think he’s the bestest (which I do), but it means once his birthday comes its 20 days until mine! (Yep, I’m vain, I love myself, and my birthday!). I assume tonight we’ll have a birthday celebration for him and celebrate his birthday with extended family in the next week? Not 100% sure on that!
On to Annika…..three years ago this little girl was brought into our lives through adoption. Unfortunately, she didn’t stay with us very long. After 2 failed adoption attempts, last October she finally came home at just over 2 years old! So today is our first REAL birthday with Miss Annika Brooke! I wish I could be up celebrating with her, but I can’t! I’ll be up this weekend, and cannot wait to hear all about it!
