and friends coming over in their princess-wear finest.
Five years ago today... I still had three weeks left until my due date.
Five years ago today... I decided to get a few last things for Easter baskets. I took my kids to my parents' house before making a quick run to Target... and then my mom noticed (sly detective that she is) that I was having pretty hard contractions about every 7-8 minutes, so she thought maybe she should come with me.
Five years ago today... I woke up looking like this...
(Well, more or less... This was taken about 6 weeks earlier in Vegas... but when your baby comes by surprise, you don't have much time to get those last-minute baby belly shots!)
Five years ago today... I had no idea what a wild and crazy and absolutely wonderful ride I was about to take.
Today... I shake my head at the wonder of it all.
Happy birthday, Roo! I love you!
