Where Has Time Gone?

Yes...would someone please tell me where has time gone???? If you find it would you please tell it to slow down? I remember it as if it were yesterday..hoping int he car at 1:30am, eating Combos, with some pain yet very manageable, with a lil drizzle driving down the highway, chit chatting with my hubby as we made our way to the hospital on March 26, 2010. We were so sure we were going to get sent home yet we needed to go in JUST IN CASE. Well....that "just in case" turned out to be 5cm dilated...soft cervix..IV in my call to my mom...trasfered to a wheelchair..rolled into the labor 2am! I can honestly tell you, and ya might laugh in disbelief, but this is when it truly hit me that I was pregnant hahaha! I know...I guess 3 months of non-stop nausea and 9 months of a growing belly didn't hit me like this very memorable moment in time hit me. I knew this wasn't one of the 100+ "A Baby Story" episodes..I wasn't to watch the birth of someone else's baby and or cry for someone else's baby...this was ME!!!!! From the minute they wheeled me into the labor I knew there was no turning back...not that I wanted to but this baby girl was coming whether we were ready or not. She was born 9 days early. I tell ya..such a jokester from birth! Fast forward 5 months later and we now have a beautiful, energetic, talkative, sweet, friendly, very expressive, did I say beautiful 5 month old! WOW..really 5 months have gone by already?

I know many moms can totally relate to me on this one. I grew up hearing the phrase, "they grow up too fast"..yep they were definitely right. And because I've noticed this, I've made a promise to myself that I will enjoy her to the fullest. Lieke I do with my husband, I tell her that I love her every single day, many times a day. I kiss her a hundred times a day and love to see her smile because she feels loved! Time sure does fly when you're having fun! I am looking forward to many more "I love yous" or like we say "Te Amo" and to many sweet kisses. Since I'm with her pretty much 24/7 (which I love) I don't see how much she's grown until either someone else notices or I see pics like these....

These are the then...and now....can you tell she's grown? This is only 5 months later!
