|This time, last year...|
It's my 33rd birthday today (man I'm getting old!) and I couldn't help but reflect what I was up to this time last year. I was just entering my 3rd trimester, battling gestational diabetes, living through a major house remodel pregnant and with a toddler, and anxiously awaiting to meet baby Mateo face-to-face.
This year, I've gotten to study my little dimpled-wonder's face for 9 months already. Diego has proven to be a caring older brother, and we're done with our house remodel! I am living about as normal and happy life with my two kids as I could imagine. Of course, there are typical issues like "The Terrible Twos" and "9-Month Old baby Separation Anxiety" that stress me out from time to time, but that won't stop me from celebrating today.
This year, gestational diabetes-free, I can eat my birthday (cup)cake "con gusto"! Although - gestational diabetes didn't really stop me last year either. Ha!
Ready to celebrate again! - Shirley
