I woke up to a 5 year old! Yes, you heard me correctly, 5. I cannot believe that it has already been that long. I remember seeing her little face for the first time, holding her all attached to monitors and then finally be able to take her home. Spending day in and day out with her, watching her learn and grow and develop into the wonderful little person she is today.
We went from milestones of rolling over to her spelling "communicate" on the way home from school. She's full of stories and imagination, which means there is never a dull moment in our house. I can't think of a day that I don't love her a little bit more than the next. Now I'm not saying we don't have our trying moments because we do, but as she grows and learns so do I. I am far from perfect as a person and a mom, but E has taught me so much and we may struggle and butt heads but it's all part of our wonderful little life.
I love her to pieces and am looking forward to everything else we have to go through together. Kindergarten in the fall, then best friends and fights, awkward wardrobe changes and funky hair cuts before we have to deal with boyfriends(I'm so giving Superman the green light on this one), ACTs and off to college or traveling Europe or whatever she decides to do.
Bring on many more smiles, tears, hugs and bed time struggles!
