I remember being newly pregnant and thinking that 40 weeks was such a long time to wait to meet my baby. And by third trimester, I was convinced that the time was absolutely CRAWLING. I honestly thought that the hours of each day were just dragging on and on. Of course I attribute that to my hugely swollen body and my general discomfort there at the end. What can I say? Excessive swelling and a nearly 50lb weight gain will do that to you. But finally April 2, 2010 came. And even though I was nervous about the unknowns of childbirth and labor, I was ready to meet Sarah.

But once Sarah was born my perception of time did a complete 180! From the day she was born I felt like if I blinked I would miss something. Every morning I would wake up and swear that Sarah had changed overnight. I prayed for time to slow down so I could savor each minute of sweet babyhood. She's gone from such a small, squishy, immobile newborn to a loud, active, almost walker!
So in honor of today here is "vintage" Sarah.
