6 years ago tonight

at around 6:30p.m., I was being introduced to the cutest little girl I had ever laid eyes on.

Holding her and watching her was amazing for so many reasons. First, we were told to expect a boy for months and then out popped this cute little thing who left everyone scrambling and second, she was like a carbon copy of myself as a baby and it was stunning to see how our family continues on.

So she was quietly dubbed Mini Mouse and named after her proud auntie.

and at around 6:30p.m. today, that same proud auntie had a telephone conversation with an adorable young girl full of life, squealing about her new puppy jumping on her and excited about her upcoming birthday party at chucke e cheese this weekend, which I could come to if I wanted.

Of course I want to.

I wouldn't miss it for the world. I miss too many of her moments and she's growing up waaaay too fast.

Happy Birthday Syd - ♥ ya lots

Those kinds of feelings are a sure sign of adulthood for sure. You are so lucky that you're an auntie! And she's certainly lucky to have an auntie who loves her so much *sniff sniff*
