Don’t call us, we’ll call you

My first grown-up birthday

Filed under: Family, Motherhood, Personal — llcall @ 8:25 pm

That’s what today feels like.  I don’t think it has that much to do with my new age, although 31 is (let’s be honest) only 9 years from 40 (yikes!).  I don’t even think it is because Neal keeps wishing me a happy 56th birthday.  I think mostly it’s because of her:

and her relentless need to be fed and clothed and held and diapered (!!) and entertained (albeit all while looking adorable).  Doesn’t leave much time for lounging around eating bonbons, which is why I’m oh-so-grateful my excellent visiting teacher Kristin volunteered her babysitting services for the night!

But just because I’m not celebrating my birthday like old times, doesn’t mean you can’t.  Enjoy these past birthday posts if you absolutely need to see a cute baby pic of me to commemorate the day.



  1. She is so cute! Made my day! I hope you have a great day! Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday Lindsay! Even if you feel growm-up, you maintain your youth beautifully! Hope your day has been great (and gets better as your babysitter relieves you 🙂

  4. Again, Happy Birthday. The chocolate will come sometime this week. I figure you like to have your birthday last as long as possible, so I’ll help you out with that. I’ll surprise ya! 🙂

  5. A huge thank you to Kristin for watching Baby Sage so Lindsay & Neal could celebrate. Did you make it to the ill-fated lecture series tonight? (you know, pay-at-the-door) If so, tell me what you thought!
    Sage’s locks show feathering growth! The color? Does it match yours, Lindsay? And those out-stretched baby arms: she loved you up for your birthday. What better treat! Happy birthday month, Lindsay!

    • We had to do an early night…5:30, so no lecture, just dinner. As for Addison’s hair, I can’t say it’s much like mine was because I had NO hair until I was 3 years old.

  6. Aha! Hair is Neal’s legacy even if it does match your color and texture: all of my babies had it (hair), and much before age 3.
