HOORAY!! Our little girl is FIVE today!! Wow, that was a blink of time for real!! We always say that the kids are growing too fast & there is so much truth in that, that it hurts. Remembering 2009 when this little girl came into our loves and changed it for eternity.
Today you turn five, It seems to amaze me how fast time is moving with you. I still remember how excited we were the day I found out I was expecting you. I by chance thought I was feeling a little different so took a trip to my Doctor to make sure it wasn't just a flu. Once there I was called into the office and before the Doctor could say any results I seen the file on the desk that highlighted "positive".
My heart leaped & although I was a mama already Ethan being three at the time I was so thrilled just as much as the first time we found out that we were expecting. It was a long nine months and not easy with me being sick all nine months and I mean all of it.
That day that you decided to change our world and made me a very proud mama of two. 16 Hours of labour with you & five days in hospital due to complications, my body needed more time to heal after you. But in those moments of extra days in the hospital in those quiet moments of just you + me once daddy went home with Ethan for the night and we had a room to ourselves - I would walk with you in that room and stand at the window holding you and think this world looked so different now. In the early quiet 3am feedings I would look at your face and say "good morning beautiful"
I still say it to you now as you know ... it's just stuck with you + me. I have written your story many times and each time I think how blessed I am to be your mama. In five years I have taught you so much and in turn you have taught me just as much. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being your mama girl !!
So Today as you wake up on this fifth Birthday I will greet you as normal and say "good morning beautiful - Happy Birthday" !
