And Then She Was Five

At this moment five years ago I was insisting my husband must get the doctor in the room. I needed to push NOW.  

They hadn't come to check on me for a while. They assumed the pitocin would take longer to work. But just a little over an hour after receiving it, little miss Ali was ready to make her way into the world.

I can still remember how the early morning light glowed into the room as I cradled her for the first time. Only, today she is five. 

Today she

pretends to be a ballerina
loves to dance to the twist
gives the best snuggles in the world
isn't a baby anymore.
is a "big kid" that holds an even bigger place in my heart!


Happy Birthday to sweet little Ali!
