My Birthday Has Never Meant So Much

Thinking about my "birth" day this year has been a completely different experience. Thinking about what happened 26 years ago today - the anticipation, excitement and anxiousness my parents must have felt...

I was so small...

Parenting was completely new to mom and dad...

Grand-parenting was completely new to all my grandparents...

They didn't know if a girl or boy was coming...

They were so young... (I'm so young right?)

From my perspective they were so prepared...

I'm so excited for the above moments. In a few short months Jetty and I will be the parents. That's all I can really think about today...



  1. The perspective sure changes when you [are anticipating the day you] become a parent. The whole world changes! Happy Birthday Melanie!

  2. why did this make me spill tears? No, better question.. why did YOU make me spill tears? *sniffle*

    Happy birthday and happy preparations for the best birth day yet to come :)

    1. I do what I can ;) and thank you so much! =)

  3. I agree, this brought tears to my eyes!

    I cant believe you are going to be a mommy this year! and I am going to be an AUNTY!

    I am so excited! Geez you had a lot of hair on your head the day you were born! and I adore the picture of you and Daddy! <3


    1. I know! It's crazy isn't it! So exciting! Thanks for your sweet comment!

  4. Happy (belated) Birthday Mel. You brought tears to my eyes. I have a little habit of checking in on you and how everything is going with your pregnancy, partly because I cant wait to go through this stage in my life and you express your excitement so wonderfully (Note: if any of my family members see this... by the above, I do not mean that we are trying right now). Have a great day!

    1. Hahaha Lauren, I love it! I love watching other people's pregnancy updates too so I hope you share when that time comes! Thanks for peeking in and for the lovely comment. xo
