In case you hadn't guessed, my darling husband turns 40 today. We had a family birthday party at his Mom's house on Sunday. It was nice to get together with the family. It's funny, when our parent's turned 40 it seemed 'so old'. But now that Colin is 40 and I'm fast approaching it, it really doesn't seem so old after all.
This is supposed to be a nice family, birthday picture but Ella was in such a weird mood. She's going through a growth spurt and really tied (i.e. grumpy) but even when I make her lie down for the afternoon, she doesn't fall asleep. Though falling asleep would require Ella actually stop talking. I don't know what to do with her when she's like this. She misbehaves a lot but if I speak to her she cries like I've broke her heart. Everything is a tragedy to Ella these days.
