The best birthday present

So on Thursday I turned 31. It's crazy to think that I'm that old, not that it's old, but that I'm getting older. I don't see myself as that old. So anyways, the kids and Todd woke me up to a donut with candles in it. It was fun. All the children made cards for me and Todd bought me some new clothes. He usually does a good job picking out clothes and even got the sizes right. Later that day I went to the hospital to receive the best gift yet. I was allowed to nurse Seth for the first time, and even more exciting was that he actually latched on and nursed for about five minutes. It was a great day. I got to nurse him again on Saturday and that didn't go so great because I couldn't get Seth to wake up. Today went even better, he nursed for 15 minutes! He's getting better every day. I can't wait to bring him home. His surgery has been moved up to the 15th. Perhaps we will be home before the beginning of October. The kids are very excited to have him come home. They are going to throw him a welcome home party the day we bring him home. It will be a fun day as well.
