And we have the video to prove it:
Today is Vivian’s sixth birthday. We celebrated it and Nora’s half-birthday with Vivian’s grandma Rosemarie and grandparents Poppa Eric and Grandma Pat. We had exquisite raspberry moose cake and presents that the girls loved. The Lego (from Pat and Eric) was much appreciated, and the microphones? Well, Rosemarie and Erin sure know Vivian.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been six years since I first set eyes on Vivian, that long and fraught night and day in the hospital. I measured her today and she comes up to my chest. She’s getting harder to lug up to bed when she’s asleep, and she’s so bright and talkative and eager to take in the world.
It’s hard to believe it’s six years. It feels like yesterday. It feels like a million years ago.
