I Became A Mother Nine Years Ago Today

That's right! My eldest child is now nine. Nine-years-old. Niner. How did this happen? Sometimes I look at her and think, "where did you come from?" I mean this is how she looks now:

But this is how she looked about 6 years ago:

And this is how she looked when she was 6 days old (yep! I graduated from BYU 6 days after she was born!):

I seriously can't imagine my life without her.

I love you, #1! Thank you for letting me make so many mistakes with you, for forgiving me so easily, and for being my hero. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
