It's hard to believe that 2 years ago today, I started feeling those first pains of agonizing labor - thanks to my midwife stripping my membranes. I had this *thing* in me that I called Fuzzball, which in some ways seems like a lifetime ago, and in other ways feels like yesterday. The past two years have been nothing but awesome since becoming a mom - and I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it... parenthood, that is.
This is definitely my favorite stage - toddlerhood. Although from time to time it's wrought with terrible twos nonsense - temper tantrums and unbearable whining, mostly it's pretty damn cute.
We had her birthday party on Saturday, since her actual birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year - and man did that kid make out. She's seriously spoiled. Not only did she get what she's been asking for for what seems like months, a tricycle (or as she calls it, MOTORCYCLE!), her dad surprised (or tried to) us with something else...
That's right. We now own a kitty. Boots is her name. I call her Meowzers. She's fun.
Funny enough, Ryan is allergic to cats. And apparently, so am I, as I haven't stopped itching since she showed up. But am I complaining? Hell no. I'm a cat person. Much more so than a dog person.
Anyway, I'm still just in awe that this...
has grown into this...
And I'm so extremely thankful for that.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
