Tuesday was India's 4th birthday, and we had a lovely family party, complete with Carvel Ice Cream Cake. That seems to be the birthday cake of choice around here these days, and I'm not complaining because I do love those chocolaty bits.
The dark circle under her eye is not from shadows or bad photography. It's a shiner that her sister Willa gave her by hitting her in the eye with a frisbee. The bruise is a lovely shade of yellow/green today.
It was also President Obama's birthday--48 years to the day from when he was born in a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya... I hope I'm not offending anyone here, but what's with the birthers? I think John Stewart said it best:
What is the coincidence alluded to in the title of this post? India shares a birthday with Obama, Beatrix shares a birthday with Bill Clinton, and Willa shares one with JFK, jr. Does this mean that John Kennedy would have been President one day? It's impossible to say, but if the foretelling power of my children's birthdays is any indication, it seems pretty clear. Of course, Amy Grant, Christina Applegate, and John Larroquette also share Willa's birthday, so maybe it's the fate of one of them to be President someday.
I'm just saying.
