Being a mom is really an incredible thing….especially as you watch your ‘baby’ grow and change and turn into a real honest-to-goodness person with opinions, thoughts, ideas, and talents. It is filled with so many incredible experiences that fill your heart with so much joy. Now, I’m not saying there aren’t bad times, cause there are, but the sweet moments of motherhood are so much more memorable! As my little girl turns 7 I am filled with so much happiness at the beautiful little girl that she is becoming.
Mother’s Day is a sentimental day for me - mostly because it’s so hard to believe that 7 years ago - ON Mother’s Day - I became a mommy when I gave birth to this sweet little baby girl - all 8lbs. 4oz. of her! (sorry about the quality - I had to SCAN photos since we didn’t have a digital camera back then!! LOL!)
And now I have this beautiful child who is growing and changing every day…. it’s truly amazing to see it happen right in front of you!
I am feeling particulary sappy the past few days, I’m not sure what that’s all about, but I put together a little slideshow! Creating the slideshow was pretty amazing - to look at 7 years of photos, growth and change all in one place! And how can you possibly pick only a ‘few’ photos to use in a 2 minute slideshow that sum up a persons 7 years of life?! Well, I’ll post the short version HERE if you want to see it….Analisa will get a longer version made just for her!
Happy Birthday to my amazing girl! You are my sunshine!
