5 Years Ago....

This little cutie pie is 5 today. Five. She is so smart and so funny but sometimes I can't
believe she's five. She's still so cute & tiny!

It's hard to believe that 5 years ago at this very moment I was being jabbed with needles and nurses were blowing through the veins on my hands. Lol! It's funny now but I was sobbing like a baby then. And then at 10:52am this adorable, tiny, chubby baby was born and changed our lives forever.

She's made us work hard, learn to love each other more, be more patient with her and each other and see life in a whole new way. She's brought so much joy and laughter and fun to us!

It's funny to see bits of my personality and lots of Beej's meld together with some of her own to create this adorable, spunky, funny little girl! She makes me smile each and every day. I couldn't imagine not having her now. She changed my view on motherhood. I never ever thought I wanted to be a mom but she has made me realize what a wonderful thing it really is.

We are celebrating her today and I couldn't be more excited!
She took cupcakes to school to share with her friends, she only has a half
day of school so later today we're going to take her to the local bounce house playground
then she's asked to go to Zaxby's for dinner (she said McD's first then switched, thank God!). I told her she could pick a little cake out at Wal-Mart afterwards. Even though we'll have
cupcakes at her party on Saturday but I can't let her actual birthday day go by with out a cake and candles and balloons!

So happy birthday, sweet girl! We love you!
