Reflections on FIVE - Part 1

I don't know if it's the fact that I saw Mamma Mia with my girlfriends this week.  Maybe I'm really having a nervous breakdown.  Maybe I feel like my life is not as full as it should be.  Whatever it is, I'm really having a hard time with the fact that my baby girl will be 5 on August 8th.  FIVE - that's a whole hand.  Five - that's a number that I didn't know would come so quickly.  That being said, I thought I'd take everyone for a trip down memory lane. 

A week before Hannah was born 2003 - I was pretty miserable.  It was a hot summer and the AC at the duplex was not working 100%.  I just remember it being hot all the time. . . hot, hot, hot. 

I remember . . . . . I remember.

No, that's not a beach ball - that's Pokey and my big belly!  Yes, Pokey was our first baby.  And you can tell by these photos.

But what I remember most is that I was missing my sister terribly.  She was in California, I was in Texas.  We were both so sad.  Here's a happy photo from before they left.


So, five years ago today, I still did not have  baby in my arms.  I was only 35 weeks pregnant.  We didn't expect to have a baby for another month.

They DO grow fast! I'm wondering how I'm staring High School and 15 smack dab in the face!
