I, however, am not the same person in that picture. I'm busy decorating and wrapping today so it hasn't fully hit me that I have been a mother for 5 whole years, and all that has changed. Regardless of what has happened or has not happened in the last 5 years, the fact that this child has sprouted into the larger-than-life girl we see now - is nothing short of a miracle.
Happiest of birthdays, Sunshine dear. Thank you for letting me test out this motherhood thing on you. I love you all the way to moon and back, times infinity. dangit. now she's going to ask me what infinity means. any suggestions?
