And 7 years go by...just like that.

I can remember what I was wearing and the exact date when I found out I was pregnant. I can remember what I did when that stick showed two lines, and how I screamed and flew into the bedroom where my sleeping husband thought the house was on fire because of how I was flipping out. I can remember getting the house ready, driving to the hospital, and the way he sounded when he cried for the first time. I remember his first steps, the beautiful baby cellulite on his upper thighs, his first tooth, his favorite toys, shows, and foods. What I don't understand is how 7 of the best years of my life flew by just like that. Like a snap of a finger. Everyone tells you not to blink. Well, I blinked. And now he's 7. You always think you have so much time. There are so many things I would have done differently. There are so many mistakes I made as a new mom that if given the chance, I'd correct. But I am so proud of this little man we are raising and so honored to be his mom. Happy Birthday Jackson Hans! You are and always will be the sunshine of my life:)
