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:'re my kid.
Ashley Belle:'re my mom.


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!
