Some of the best middles

The middle can be so under appreciated sometimes, dont you think? Today I'm celebrating one of the best "middles" of my life. To do that I've made up a list of some of the best middles...

a grilled cheese sandwich: melty, gooey, cheese...what more could you want?

    a burger: the middle on this particular item is a necessity, not to mention all the beefy goodness

    a cream filled donut: although it can be argued that the cream is superfluous it is my humble opinion that everyone needs a little excess in life sometimes, and this is the perfect example.

    Summer: particularly when you are NOT pregnant, but summer is the middle of the year and claims such things as family reunions, swimming every day, barbeques, etc.

    Speaking of pregnancy the middle is normally the best part, you're not barfy, you're not too big, you're starting to feel the baby move, you find out the gender, the best part by far..the middle.

There's halftimes, and intermissions, recess and seventh inning stretches, but one of the best middles by far is the one that is in our family: Aiden.

Handsome Aiden,

life might define you as "middle child", but you dear boy are one of the best "middles" this world will ever see. So today when you turn three, please know that you are the cheese to my sandwich, the beef to my burger, the cream to my donut, and one of the biggest joys of my life. And remember, "Beginnings are normally scary, endings are usually sad, it's the MIDDLE thats the best part!" Happy Birthday man cub, we love you!

Middles are so the best (speaking as a middle). Adam and I might only have 2 kids because if we have more we'd probably the crap out of our middle. Kidding...who knows how many we'll have. I love that picture. I love your blog and clever writing style. I sincerely hope your feet are less puffy and belly less itchy than mine. 5 weeks. Ish.

Michelle said my sentiments:) I am teary eyed esp being a middleish child and .. knowing a little history. I know I was such a small part of your life here but know you are so loved and missed by your friends here in Ft Worth
