6 Years

6 years ago tomorrow afternoon I became a mother. I cannot even believe its been that long, yet at the same time I can't imagine not being a mom. I remember the week leading up to Beth's birth so well. Man, was I ever miserable! I was just telling her tonight how big she made my belly!

This was 5 days before she was born. The night before I THOUGHT she was going to be born, see how ready and excited I look? Yeah, the next 5 days were pretty miserable. But Sunday morning October 23rd I finally headed to the hospital. That afternoon at 4:46 my beautiful girl was born. Bruised and swollen from her rough delivery, but beautiful none the less! My heart grew 10 times bigger just hearing her cry the first time. I would never be the same.

I love my big girl Beth so so much. She is an absolute delight. I have never met any girl as girly and sweet and sensitive as this girl is. I look forward to watching her grow up so much. I have a feeling I'm really going to like the woman she is going to become. Happy Birthday sweet girl! How has time gone so fast?!
