High Five Age

Next week, my darling little Ashley Belle will turn F-I-V-E.  FIVE.  El numero fivo.

How is this even possible????!!!!!?????

Here is a picture of the two of us right after I first met her - the little person who'd been kicking me and giving me heartburn and making me crave skittles for 9 months.

I think we're both looking at each other like:

Me:  So....you're my kid.
Ashley Belle:  So.....you're my mom.

{silence}

Ashley Belle:  What do we do now?
Me:  I dunno.

But we've come a a long way, my baby girl.

And I think we've figured it out pretty well along the way.

I love you.

Happy Birthday to the "big" girl! I think we all feel like saying "So what now?" "Dunno!" when we leave the hospital. They should give you manual like with everything else! LOL!
