Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

It was Mikey's birthday yesterday, he's 2! I haven't been around much as my inlaws arrived on Monday and we've been non stop since then!

Yesterday for his birthday we went to the zoo, it was awesome. Mikey laughed at the naughty monkeys and was a little scared when the lions roared and the sea lions did tricks he thought were funny, but they smelled bad. He got to play on the awesome playground they have at the zoo which has a trampoline built into the ground.

Then the car broke down in the parking lot and we had to catch the bus home (Car is still not fixed. Think it's the fuel injection). A real bummer because we were supposed to be going over to Stuttgart today for Oktoberfest. We had a little birthday dinner in the evening and some of Mikey's friends came over for cake. Mikey wouldn't eat his cake because he was being a big ol' cranky pants from such an exciting day. I made the cake myself (me, baking? I know, weird) and it actually turned out really good!

My mother in law has my camera right now, she has gone into town. But I will upload some photographs of the zoo, cake and gifts etc when I get it back!

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
