Four birthdays in September. A month that flies by in a whirl of what we call our Holiday month (Eli was born in June, but benefits from the other birthdays in this month.)
First we saw three, and nine followed close behind. The odd ages, they make you pause. They are full of spice and sass. I like them. I turn one of those odd ages soon and am expecting much spice!
That morning moment. The surprise and sleepiness. The joy in a world celebrating you. Sparkle. As you get just a little bit older. Shine. As you move beautifully into that new number.
