where were you five years ago?

As I grow older, I realize that time really does go by quickly.

Five years ago today, I was sitting at my OB's office, explaining to him that I thought I was ready to pop. He laughed. I was only 35 weeks along. But then he checked me. And I was already at 4 centimeters.

I remember that Friday vividly.

I went to work. And then that evening I walked. Then I put chili sauce on everything I ate for dinner. Then I walked. And walked. And that night Dad2Amara and I did exactly what got us into this predicament again.

I wanted to do anything to speed the pregnancy process along.

Saturday came and still no Amara. I went to work that Saturday (I was still working a weekend shift at the time) just like nothing had different. Except the huge beach ball of a belly of mine starting to drop lower and lower.

On Sunday, I went to work. But I didn't go home.

By the end of the day, I was a proud mom.

Amara's fifth birthday is Sunday.

Happy birthday, Bean! Mommy loves you!


  1. Happy Birth Day to you - Mom2Amara! ;-) I think we should all get presents on our children's birthdays. This is a lovely tribute. Amara is a lucky girl.

  2. Laurie - I'm with you! Gifts all around on our children's birthdays!
