5 years old.
Just typing that gives me goosebumps. It’s so hard to believe that 5 years have already gone by and that no matter how hard I try to stop her, Alea is growing up right before my very eyes. I say this every single year, but it feels like this birthday and the fact that she’s turning 5, means that she’s not a baby anymore.
I feel like 5 is a big, big deal. It’s the year that she’ll start kindergarten at her new school and she’ll even start going to a new, more local daycare. It’s just crazy to think that 5 years ago today, I was in labor all day long and my beautiful little girl was born at 6:19pm.
8lbs 6oz and 21″ of absolute perfection.
Happy Birthday my sweet Alea Lou. You’re the girl who made me a mommy and I’m forever thankful for your giggles, snuggles, cuddles and love. I love you more than all the stars in the sky.
