36 weeks and 32 years

by

It’s my birthday today! And as we’ve done the past years, it’s time to get out my birthday balloons!

Grab a balloon

Pick a balloon. Now imagine that you’re flying into the blue horizon with that balloon in hand. Whoosh! Isn’t that fun? I’m following you, holding on to my gold balloon.

You have to tell the balloon where to take us. We are celebrating my birthday together and it’s up to you to choose where we are celebrating my 32nd year. You have to pick an interesting place otherwise the balloons won’t move. They’re kinda picky like that.

Now, where are we celebrating my birthday? 😉

*****

Thank you Lord, thank you Universe for all the blessings you’ve given me, especially within the past 9 months. I am thankful for:

My Timmy Boy, who celebrates his 36 weeks or 9 months in my tummy today. Thank you for his good health and good growth. I woke up to his movements this morning, and I’d like to think it was his own way of greeting me “Happy Birthday Mom!”

My husband, who has been consistent in his love and support, especially when I would be attacked by Incredible Hulk pregnancy hormones.

My family, who have never failed to stand by me through everything, even taking on the washing of Timmy’s onesies and blankets as we prepare for his arrival.

My friends, who have showered me with so much love and helpful advice while making wisecracks about my humongous, pointed belly.

And, YOU, my blogger friends, my readers, who have been a source of great wisdom and strength for me. Thank you for the encouragement, for your POSITIVITY. Let’s keep the happy thoughts and actions goin’ round and round!

    I will tie a blue balloon around the neck of a stork and let it fly all over the sky. The stork will safely deliver your little Timmy into your arms in a couple of weeks time and blue because your first born is a boy! =)

    Happy Birthday Toni. May you continue to be showered with blessings!

    The greatest birthday gift ever is right inside your tummy. But if I had my way, I’d let those balloons take you to Mothercare, Gingersnaps, Big&Small company, Debenhams, Zara, Baby Gap, Zodiac and all the baby sections of Rustans, SM and Landmark so you can shop, shop, and shop to your heart’s delight. How? Another balloon will be carrying a blank check for your Baby Timmy Shopping Spree! Hehe!

    Have a safe delivery Toni. I so know that you’ll make a wonderful mom.

    Happy, happy birthday!

    Happy, happy birthday Mommy Toni!

    The balloon will take you to your parents’ place and you will have a bountiful celebration there, feast on food for long life, play FT afterwards and your Granny kissing Timmy again just like in one of your previous posts.

    happy birthday toni! I think its safe to say that this year you received the best gift ever, a little baby boy inside your tummy… ilang weeks nalang.

    If I were to choose, i’d take the purple ballon and whisk us to one of those fab salon and spa to have our pregnant bellies pampered and after that your gold ballon will take you back to a surprise party your family and friends have prepared for you.

    have a great day toni!

    Happy birthday to you! I love reading your blogs. I just attended a baby shower to a first time mom and I just imagine how happy you could also be. I will be third time mom by September. I wish you a safe delivery and a healthy baby Timmy!

    Happy birthday Toni. A week from now and your countdown begins! Yipee..so excited for you and your hubby.

    I’m picking a green balloon for you. Because green reminds me of nature bliss – R&R! Come your delivery day, it helps to take a mental vacation to that place you’ve always felt so relaxed — just to combat the labor pains. Haha. Worked for me. :) As always, praying for your safe delivery!

    let’s take the pink balloon up, up and away! :)

    let it lead us over great oceans, over green grass, over a hidden valley with the best spa sanctuary.

    let’s get pampered for the day – a total relaxation and reflection day :)

    Happy Belated birthday Miss Toni, wonderful mommy to be!

    Happy birthday Toni! We’re not going anywhere as pregnant women are not allowed to take flight in the later stages of pregnancy. We’ll just sit on a park bench with the balloon and probably share a cake.
