Today you are five.
Five years old.
I have always made fun of those old bitties that say things like
"Wow, where has the time gone?"
Well, your mom is officially an old bitty today.
Where have the last 5 years gone?!?!?!?
It seems like yesterday that I was pregnant with you,
feeling the first pangs of labor shortly before daddy's alarm clock went off,
and totally (happily) surprised when you came into the world only 9 1/2 hours into labor.
After 2 pushes, you came into the world....ready for action.
I should have known this was a precursor to your personality.
Jump into everything feet first....ready for action.
It seems like yesterday, you had this perfectly round little bald head....
....content to suck your thumb, and jump in the jumparoo.
This sweet little baby
With your big blue eyes
And your cute little belly laugh
And your fast ninja-like crawl
