Awesome-

My birthday was pretty darn good this year.
See the amazing birthday cake as proof ;)
It's the Tardis. From Doctor Who.

Squeal!

I've was so anxious about the cake, wondering what on earth my husband had in store for me. It was a wonderful surprise! He really spoils me, which reminds me...

I also got my tattoo done. Which is still healing. And is really sore. But totally worth it. Excellent birthday present.

The colors represent my lost babies. The green for my loss in May, the blue for my loss in March, the yellow for my loss in November. The center is red to represent me. All intertwined and connected, parts of me. It's perfect.

I had a good time hanging out with my friends on Saturday. Dinner was awesome, it was good to get out of the house too. And of course, then there was Rockband and a movie.

On my birthday I rounded up my husband and little brother, and I had them come with me to help a friend move. She needed the help, and I was more than glad to do it. Of course, now I'm really sore... but I'm just going to consider it my work out for the week. It's all good.

All in all, it was a nice diversion. I did have a little bit of a break down on Sunday after all the hoopla was done with, but it was just a little one. I think most people know how birthdays can be good and bad- for me it's thinking too much about how much time has passed, and what happened a few years ago, and where we are. I think being utterly exhausted from the weekend didn't help. I get so emotional when I'm tired.

But, it was a GREAT birthday. I am so grateful for my wonderful friends and my lovely husband <3

Happy birthday. I've always thought about getting a tattoo for the baby I lost but I'm a chicken.

Hi there and happy birthday! I just came across your blog through "A little blog about the big infertility" and wanted to leave a comment. I'm so sorry to read about your losses. I've never experienced a miscarriage, and I thank GOD for that. Because, even though infertility is super hard (I've been trying for my second child for 2-1/2 years now), the idea of getting pregnant and losing the child is unbearable to even imagine. I love your tattoo. It goes to show how important those babies are to you if you're willing to have a permanent reflection of it on your body. I also read you're taking the year off. I hope you enjoy 2011 and that it brings you nothing but joy and happiness. I'm now following your blog and am looking forward to reading about your adventures. :)
