This past Saturday we had Brinson's 3rd birthday party. We were a little concerned when we woke up to rain. Rainy, cold...I was mortified. I hadn't prepared for 35+ people INDOORS. Thank Heaven by 3pm the weather was nice so the kiddos and adults could play outside. We had an awesome time. Brinson made out like a bandit again with all her birthday loot! I cannot believe she is 3!!!!
We had some new faces this year for the party. NICU podmate Morgan Manley came with her folks, B's classmates Lilyana and Megan came with their parents, Ned's co-worker Shawn Kirk and his family, our dear friends The Hardy's with their daughter Isa, and also someone very special to us, Megan Johnson who brought her daughter Ella. Megan was my Labor and Delivery nurse at Women's hospital. She was with us when we delivered Cooper and Brinson. She did our mold of Cooper's hand and footprints. She will always have a special place in our hearts.
And next year, I'm thinking...party somewhere other than home. :)
