Bridget's Beloved Birthday!

Enjoying the cake on her 1st Birthday


Today is Bridget's 12th birthday, or as a friend so thoughtfully put it, YOUR-BABY-IS-TURNING-12-TODAY!!! We are having a cold, rainy day here which cancelled Edward's track meet and Bridget's track practice. This evening, she has an orchestra concert, so after that, we will eat cake with the family.

This morning, I woke up staring at a huge deep scar on my forehead that I had never seen before and thought it must be flesh-eating bacteria, and I thought this can't be happening on Bridget's birthday. The good news is, I must have just slept on my forehead wrong, because it's pretty much gone now.

Little sweetie-pie Bridget has always love birthdays, and she has been counting the days down for months till today. The excitement level is sky-high here today. When she was 3, she would tell me every day that tomorrow is Bitty Baby's Birthday. I was greeted by her huge grin this morning, and I sang to her the Song right away which in turn took my mind off the flesh wound. She came off the bus today with armloads of presents, so I think she is having a good day so far.

Happy Birthday, Bridget! (So Julia, very glad it isn't flesh-eating bacteria. I hope this means I will still see you soon!)

Happy, happy birthday Bridget! How I wish we could see you and share in your excitement but we'll have to wait until next week at Grandparents Day. We're looking forward to it!

Happy Birthday Bridge over troubled water! I hope you had a wonderful day. Paige is turning 11 next Friday and she is counting down too. I've had 36 and I still look forward to them too.
I'm glad you're mother doesn't have a flesh eating bacterial infection. That would not make for a very fun birthday for you, hanging around in the hospital and all.
