I have been thinking back to 5 years ago alllllllllll day! See....5 years ago I was induced with my little baby girl!!!! I was SO nervous, SO ready, and SO big!
I was in labor for 23 hours (yes, that is NOT a typo.......it was 23 HOURS) and received the BEST gift a girl could EVER ask for!!! July 22nd WAS going to be Kacey's birthday........BUT she had other plans. She patiently waited inside me of the ENTIRE day and came on the 23rd of July.
Every year on the 22nd I look back at the old videos of her birth and all that lead up to the BIG event. I am SHOCKED that it has been a full FIVE years!!!! How on earth am I the mother of a Five year old?!?!
I have a ton to do today to get ready for our big SURPRISE trip to Disney tomorrow. We have season passes, so if you go on your birthday (after signing up online for the 2009 Birthday event) they will give her an $80 gift certificate to buy WHATEVER she wants inside of the park. I am especially excited about this because EVERY single time we go there she BEGS me for this $80 Ariel Wedding dress. Tomorrow.....she will be getting this dress! (although with my luck she will buy something else and then continue to beg me for that darn dress!)
I look back to five years ago with fond (and painful) memories............but after seeing this picture of my stomach I am grateful to be sitting here looking back on the big event. (and big stomach)
