It feels surreal to think about SIX years has passed since the last day that hubby and I were a couple and then became a family.

I was re-reading last year's post about Gaby's birth and if you have never read it, you may want to do that now (click here to read it).

I was going through my mind how October 5, 2003 was one of the happies days of my life, but also the most painful. No pain I have ever felt over something else can compare to the pain I had while in labor and child birth... 48 hours of labor and 1+ hour pushing was surely painful. But then, the most gorgeous miracle arrived and Gaby was born.

Gaby has been awaiting to turn 6 since she was 4!!! At that age she was in a multiage preschool, and Pre-K kids were together with Kinder kids... So, after just a few months of class, the older ones started to turn 6. Then, last school year when she was in Kinder, kid after kid after kid was turning 6, and she was just dying to be 6! She would say all kind of things that she "still cant do because she is not 6". My mom was joking the other day that it was like Gaby was expecting some kind of super power when turning 6.

The funny thing is that I see her more mature and doing things in a different (meaning positive) way... She is a total BIG GIRL now!

In case you cant read, and havent heard about this poem before, this is what it says:

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly Me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

Gabby definitely looks like a 6 year old now... for some reason she just had been growing like crazy lately. That poem is SO beautiful.. thanks for sharing that.



We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
