Life is good.

I have been a slacker at posting lately... per usual... but I have been enjoying life. We have been able to enjoy some extra special family time these last couple weeks and I am trying really hard not to take it all for granted. Tonight we are celebrating Genevieve's 6th birthday. Pizza is ordered, cake is made (pineapple upside down cake, as she requested), and hot wings are absorbing sauce in the crockpot.

I was looking at some pictures last night and it's a little mind boggling to me how much my little middle girl has grown in the last couple years.

The day she was born... I still remember it vividly. 7 pounds 4 ounces, she looks so much fatter than that. haha

After we found out she had dislocating hips and was outfitted with her Pavlik harness (15 days old). 

13 weeks later (we were so lucky her case wasn't severe) she was out of that contraption, and before we knew it she was walking.

And not too long after she was a big sister.

And had her own unique sense of fashion. Beads and dress up dresses figured in heavily.

Around this same time frame she developed horrible red patches of eczema all up and down her arms and legs. My poor girl has had an awful lot of trials for such a little runt. She remained chipper and never complained, though. The only time she ever let us know it was bothering her was when she'd wake up crying in the middle of the night because it itched so bad. And I tried friggin' everything. It wasn't until we returned from Korea and went through the hoops to see a fantastic dermatologist that it finally went away. I really believe if not for the doctor that we were referred to she'd probably still be suffering with it today.

All ready for gymnastics in Korea. Mismatched socks, she still does that. If I look closely I can see the red patches on her arms. It makes me sad to remember her suffering.

Back from Korea and still our little Dress Up Queen.

I can't get over her faces. I love them.

Just last summer... and she's still changed so much. Where is my little baby that had dark curls and made an ET face?


November. Her head was in my lap. I love her.

And now she's 6. SIX!!!! What the hell, man. They really do grow up way too fast.


Happy Birthday, Sunnybeeb.
