Just yesterday..

It seems like yesterday I saw this little face for the very first time, now she is going to be celebrating her sixth birthday in 3 days.
Words can't even describe the emotions I felt looking into her eyes that very first day in February, so overcome with emotion it engulfed my whole being. I remember entering the tiny motel room, I went in last, nervous, the noise level was overwhelming, then I saw you. I can say for sure, you were mine, it was meant to be. It's like the room stopped, I couldn't hear the noise, everyone in the room disappeared, it was only the three of us, you, Daddy and Mommy.
As I lay in bed last night thinking about your six little years, I am so proud of all your accomplishments, I love being your Mom.
The next few days belong to you, a celebration for all you mean to your Daddy, your Mie-Mie and me your Mom.
I love you Puddin' Pop A favorite photo of mine, this is our beautiful guide Lily holding Jennifer.

These pictures are so adorable!

It is amazing how quickly days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, and the months turn into years! The time really goes too quickly. I look at my 10 year old in disbelief at times....how can he be that old already!

Enjoy your birthday weekend!

What a beautiful post. I have no doubt that Jennifer and Jilly-bean were meant to have you as their mama. Doesn't it just seem like yesterday that you looked into Jennifer's eyes for the first time? Here's to many wonderful future memories.

Hugs,
Jonni
