Feeling Nostalgic (pics and video)

I am feeling nostalgic and kinda sad. Aly is going to be 3 on Friday, and it's really getting to me. I'm so proud of her and all she's learned since getting her diagnosis last summer, and she's a real beauty, but at the same time, I miss the tiny stage. I even miss being hugely pregnant. Since I can't make Aly age backwards instead of forward, I really, really am wanting another baby. Too bad that won't happen any time soon.

Thought I'd share a few pics of those early days... the ones making me so sad for what went by too quickly.


My sister and me two days before I had Aly. My sister is pregnant again now.

In the hospital:

2 weeks:

3 months, with her cousins also born that spring/summer:

6 months, when she would eat anything (she hardly eats anything now):

7 months, Tasting snow:


Ahhh... there's just too many photos to show you my whole walk down memory lane. How about I just share the video I made for her first birthday? I think I'll show it to her on her birthday this year. I wonder if she'll recognize herself. I just watched it and cried my eyes out.

Thank you! I am seriously so sad now. I didn't realize how much that video was going to affect me. I hadn't watched it since before I got her diagnosis and it's taken on a whole other meaning to me. I think I know what I'll be talking about with my therapist tomorrow!

Awww!!!  I love the pictures  :)  Aly is so adorable!!

I know what you mean.  I look at pictures of Will and Jake when they were babies and it makes me want to go back in time.  But, it does get more fun the older they get.  :)  ((hugs))
