Along the lines of personal history, I've been thinking back over the last year in the history of myself and my little girl. She is twenty weeks old today! Amazing! She's got such a personality already, so happy and sweet (and also firey, strong and silly!) At this milestone, I couldn't help but think back to when I was twenty weeks pregnant with her (and looking oh, so serious! haha!), half-baked, as I called it then (although she came a little early, so she was a bit more than halfway there already.)
I was just starting to show and just starting to breathe easier about the pregnancy, with a successful anatomy scan behind us (where we found out that my intuition about having a girl was correct) and feeling her move (amazing!) It was an exciting time and the hubster and I spent a lot of time speculating about what she'd be like, what she would look like, what things she would enjoy doing. And now she's been in our life for twenty weeks!
I can't say that time has exactly flown by, like everyone says it does. It has in some ways, but in others, with a baby who does not like to sleep, time moves quite slowly. But today, I'm feeling a bit sentimental about her reaching this milestone. Twenty weeks sounds like a big number! And today, I moved the shoulder straps in her car seat up a notch. She's getting so long!
Here's to my sparkling little girl and the weeks, months, and years ahead. I love you, Mush!
