Happy Birthday To Me!

1511914_10101626491694479_773290759_n_editedToday is my 35th birthday. I am officially in my mid thirties. If I got pregnant again (not happening), my medical chart would be plastered with alerts warning staff of “advanced maternal age”.  Does that mean I am now an advanced mother?

Anyways, to celebrate my birthday, Charlie and I spent a lovely afternoon at Harper’s Ferry, WV. The overcast sky made way for the sun just as we arrived. We spent the afternoon playing in the grass by the river, walking on trails, and strolling through town. Oddly enough, I think the shuttle bus was Charlie’s favorite part of the adventure.

Getting older doesn’t bother me. I am not embarrassed by my age nor do I dread getting old. Mostly, I am grateful for the privilege to grow older. Additionally, I’m thankful beyond words to have Charlie with me.

Birthdays do not get any better than today.

In May 2012, my pregnancy ended three and a half months early due to severe early onset preeclampsia. This is my collection of thoughts and media. It is an attempt to document and discuss our experience of navigating the post NICU world. View all posts by Rebecca Wood
