How Can It Be?

How is it that this girl, who started out so tiny and squally and who puked all the way down my back on her first night home from the hospital, and who spent the first three ths of her life crying at the top of her lungs until I thought I was going to lose my mind...

How is it that today, she is 9 years old? I mean, when you're pregnant and when you have a newborn, everyone says "Oh, it'll go by sooooo fast!" but, REALLY?! Nine years?! How can it be? I could go on and on and write a whole bunch of stuff about Reilly, but, honestly, I think it'll just suffice to say that she's fun, she makes me laugh every day, she's silly, she's stubborn, she's developed a great sense of humor, she's got a heart for the Lord, and I love her more than any other girl on the planet.
Happy birthday, Baby Bear!

Oh, and because years ago Reilly decided that she and Supey have the same birthday, I present you with some pictures of the Birthday Cat.
(Because nothing says "happy birthday!" like a cat, wearing camo undies.)

Happy birthday, Reilly!

It sure does go by so fast. I swear all I did was blink and we went from February 15th 2000 to February 15th 2009 and I suddenly have a 9 year old!

Natalie said... did you let that happen? How can she be 9 and yet I haven't aged a day? Weird.

Happy Birthday Reilly!!!
