Happy Birthday to my True Loves


Today is my baby and my Babe's birthday. My little girl turns 2 and my wonderful husband turns 34. They are my pair of Gemini's. Both with the same personality and same features. She is her daddys little girl and though they can bump heads they are closer than I could have imagined. Today they gave each other groggy birthday kisses this morning and tonite I will sing to them over a sushi dinner. It has been a crazy year for them filled with separation and with lots of fun times and mornings together watching 'toons'. The Phi is becoming such a "kid", and all the good and bad that comes with it. She is at a strange stage where she is independent, but doesn't really know all the 'rules' yet. Rules like, no running around Target. She is a smart kid and she will learn with time. In one year she has gone from barely staying stable on her two feet to climbing playground equipment and going down slides all on her own. Seems like she has a bunch of new words everyday and one of them is finally Mom. She has fallen in love with her cousin Angelica and loves to play with her. Her hair has gotten longer, or bigger really and has stayed curly and light brown. I love her curls because they fit her quirky personality. She has developed an attitude and when PR Dad finally came home she had a period where she wouldn't sleep. She has tested my patience like no one else ever has. But I am so proud and happy to be her Mom. She is excited about her birthday and her party. And I am excited for all the fun stuff she will learn and we will do together in the next year. The Phi has effortlessly become the third person of our exclusive group. Joey sacrificed so much this year in hopes that the house would sell and we could be where we want to be and where we belong. Things have not worked out as we have hoped but despite the setbacks, this year I have watched him become an even better Dad than when The Phi was a baby. He has remained the funniest man that I know and don't let the grey hair fool you, he still is cool as hell. And if you forget that giant ZZ Top goatee will remind you. I wish that I could give him the Harley motorcycle that he dreams about. One day. Today we will be together and I will get to celebrate the 2 loves of my life.
