Less Than a Week

My baby turns two next Tuesday. Time goes SO fast. It feels like it was just yesterday I was getting frustrated with Alicia for always saying, "You don't even look pregnant". Or how about the time I had my F.B.I. (Fabulous Baby Inside) shirt on and the check out girl at Wal-Mart said, "Your shirt, I don't get it!". Mind you I was 7 months pregnant at the time. Then there is always the janitor at school who said, "I know that walk. You're pregnant. So, when are you due?" My answer "Yesterday!" Fast forward to the excitement of going to the hospital to be induced and the 43 hours of waiting as woman after woman came in, had a baby and went on over to the next road. Then the beautiful baby girl that came into this world (two weeks late). Her long, little toes and fingers that spread apart with a scare bringing about the nickname "Treefrog". All of the friends that visited me in the hospital. The fact that she was so small we had NO clothes that fit her. Julianne had to run to the store and buy us a preemie outfit for her. Breastfeeding her in the middle of the night. That had to have been yesterday, right? It's impossible that this all took place two years ago. Oh how time flies! I think I had better go spend some time with this precious little girl...before she grows up on me. Enjoy your little ones because before you know it they won't be so little anymore.
