Today I'm 27.
So, happy birthday to me!
Here's a fun fact: I share this day with my nephew, Liam and my second-cousin, Ara. I'm pretty sure that by some point in the day, I will also share it with my friend Jayme's new baby boy, Coy.
It's weird to think that I am inching closer and closer to my 30's and further and further away from my 20's, but it doesn't really bother me. This birthday is actually pretty special for two reasons.
 It's my last birthday as a non-Mama*.
*Some may argue that being pregnant makes me a Mama already, but for arguments sake - let's just go with it.
 I am turning the same age that my mom was when she had me.
|Momma - Pregnant with me in 1985; Lou - Pregnant with baby boy in 2012|
Pretty special, eh?
Mom put a sweet little diddy on Facebook about us being the same age with our first babies (amongst other wonderful things) and failed to warn me of it's tear-inducing contents.
I hope my 27th year will be as special as I think - full of love, laughter, new experiences (and challenges), and a deeper appreciation for the little things.
