Olivia, age 5

Five years ago.
Five years ago, I was getting hooked up to pitocin and watching The Price is Right, while my contractions got stronger and stronger.
Five year ago, when The Price is Right was over, I started watching Oceans Eleven as a distraction (hello Brad, Matt and George.  Worked like a charm... until it didn't!)
Five years ago, I had no idea that in a few hours, minutes, seconds, my life would change forever.

Man, time goes by quickly.


In the past year, my darling girl has:

...been visited by the tooth fairy three times
...successfully completed her second dance recital
...learned to swim and dive down eight feet to retrieve toys
...stopped sucking her thumb (!)
...had her ears pierced one and a half times (one had to be redone because it fell out)
...added another stamp to her passport, visiting Turks & Caicos for a second time
...started Kindergarten
...got a bunk bed (and claimed the top bunk)
...attended her first birthday party without a parent
...watched her first play "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
...took her first ride in a convertible
...welcomed two more cousins to her family tree

Five years ago today, I became a mom.
I had no idea that meant I would be forced to have my heart walk around outside of my body.

This is a cute post. I have an Olivia who is only 9 months old at this time. I hope I can remember things like that and be able to post it somewhere for her to be able to read when she is older.
