Bethany, the Six Year Old

Has it really been 6 years since this little one rushed into the world not breathing and had to be quickly revived by the nurses?
Six years ago since Naomi and Jacob together became big brother and big sister of a wee little baby (the smallest biological baby at 7 lbs and 12 oz)

Has it really been over 5 years since she refused to crawl? Four and a half years since she gave up and started walking?
A lot more than four years since she began to fill our house with her beautiful chatter? And we began to realize that she was the one who taught us all how to love so much better?

Four years since her butterfly birthday party?!

Has it really been three years since she started dancing with me?

Has it really been so many years since she shared with us how to see the world through her fairy eyes?

Has it been so many years since she proved to us that she very much could fly?!

Has it really been two whole years since she spent months wearing a black leotard and cat ears every day to play?

Has it been more than a year that she insisted on ribbons on her shoes just like fancy Nancy?

Has it really been six years since the big sister won a little sister?

We have been so blessed to spend six years with our fairy, our sensitive one, our precious Bethany!

Happy Birthday, Bethany girl.

Happy Birthday to Bethany! We love you so much and can't believe 6 years has passed either!

Olivia, I still vividly remember sitting with you at Chick-Fil-A after your midwife's appointment . . . you eagerly awaiting her arrival! Time has GOT to slow down!
