Hindsight is 20/20

If I knew then what I know now......

Her big blue, sparkly eyes

Those eyes.

Her beautiful smile.

That cute button nose.

Those rosebud lips.

Her petite little body.

Her soft, smooth, fair skin.

Button nose, rosebud lips.

The smile she has for me every morning.

The hugs she has for her sisters everyday.

The eagerness she has to learn.

The curiosity she has for the world around her.

The quickness with which she can climb up a flight of stairs.

Her cat like swipe as she scratches you in the face out of nowhere!!

Wow!  I wish I knew back then, back at Old Navy, when I got that phone call from my hubby(.,
Her petite little body

My reaction would have been totally different. 

Perhaps more like this.

Me: "So let me get this straight, we have a 1 in 200 hundred chance that our baby will have Down Syndrome?

Hubby: "Yup."

Me: "I hope we hit the jackpot!!"

Nuff said.



Turn your head for a moment...and she's at the top of the stairs.


  1. Don't you wish you could go back and say that? Seriously! Those eyes and that gorgeous face say it all.

    1. She rocks that extra chromosome for sure! Third time's a charm for the blue eyes! I was sooooo excited when I saw her eyes turning blue like mine!

  2. I feel the same way. We totally hit the jackpot!

    1. We should buy lottery tickets! We seem to have good luck with "odds".
