Birthday Party

Well before I get to the birthday fun I'll give you a baby update. Sadly, nothing to report. No progress! I was a bit disappointed to hear that, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see where we're at next week. I have been having a few teeny tiny contractions here and there the last day or two, but now I'm just thinking that maybe I shouldn't get my hopes up.

I was super busy this weekend and didn't get around to writing birthday posts for the girls. Oops. Their birthday was Saturday. Emma turned 4 and Abby turned 3. That was also the day of the shared birthday party for all three kids!

This is the amazing cake that our friend Debbie made for us. So cute!!
And here, Abby just wanted a random picture with Jessie. She's adorable :)
Blowing out the candles (Ian didn't want to participate)
Opening presents.
All Ian wanted to do was play with his new Thomas train toys.
That's why he wouldn't blow out his candle, eat any cake, or play in the bounce house.
Although he did finally get in and loved it of course.

And after the party Daddy and Grandpa even got in to bounce with them!
Jessie (seen above) rented the bounce house as her present to them and the kids really had a good time in there - no wonder they love her so much! I was worried because about an hour before the party it started to rain and I thought they wouldn't get to use it. Luckily it didn't rain very hard and didn't last terribly long. It was crazy having everyone crammed in our little house for the beginning of the party, but I think everyone survived.

I might try to give the girls each a birthday post. That way I don't have to be stuck with any mommy guilt for writing one for Ian and not them. :)

I just found your blog through Maggie's. We also use NFP and had 4 kids within 5 years. I was reading your past posts, and wanted to encourage you with going natural for the childbirth if you can. I had epidurals with the first 3, and had my 4th one naturally, and it was the best labor ever. If I can do it, anybody can do it :) I'll keep you in my prayers!!
