Five years ago today, I was gargantuan.
Like seriously GARGANTUAN.
I weighed more than I ever had in my whole entire life. I weighed more than my husband had in his whole entire life. I was FULL O' BABIES.
Note: The below picture was taken in December of 2006. TWO MONTHS before I gave birth to the twins.
Sidebar: Aw, look at Ashley! She was such a little squirt. (I hope somebody helped her out of that bucket because lord knows I wasn't moving my behind off that couch any time soon.)
Anyways, I tried to find a picture of me further along with the twins to show you all. And yes, I found a few. BUT GOOD LORD ALMIGHTY, I looked terrible those last couple of months. Yeah, yeah, everybody says that. With me, it's true. Obviously there wasn't much I could have done about the whale belly. And yes, no clothes fit me, let alone cute clothes. But could somebody have please passed me a hairbrush? Or a mirror? Yikes.
SO, needless to say, none of those photos will be making their debut on the world wide web anytime soon. The above photo will have to do. And let me just say the fact that it cuts out my entire facial/cranial area weighed heavily (heh heh, heavily) in my decision to post it.
ANYWAYS. Now that we've established I was hugely pregnant five years ago today, I can get to the point of this post. Which is that my baby boys are turning five years old tomorrow. Five!!!!!!
How can this be?
How is it possible to go from this...
...in just five short years? If somebody can explain it to me, I'm all ears.
