Two digits. Siena has been saying ‘she’s almost 10′ since last year, a long time ago. She’s been waiting. And now she’s 10. Ten. T- E – N!
Yesterday morning, around 6:30am, 1o years ago, she was born here in Portland. We didn’t know if she was going to be a boy or a girl. We were waiting to see, and I remember like it was yesterday the days at the hospital with all its crazy-ness and stressful moments. And even more beautiful the day she arrived and we held her close for the first time. This day. Ten years ago.
And come see how much she’s grown up.
Crazy how fast the time goes by.
Yes. You are ten now, my little one. You’ve grown so much. And we celebrated today.
Remembering the last ten years in our lives. With you.
You talked to grandparents and friends. Phone is great, but I must admit Skype is very great as well too. It makes the world seem much smaller! Perfect for when you have friends and family and grandparents living in other country across the world.
We went swimming (appropriate to her day) to a new place with huge slides, a waves pool, lap swimming… lots and lots of fun. Just minutes away from home, but we’ve never been before, and today was the perfect day to check it out. Note: Just to clarify, this picture above is not of us at the pool, it’s just to remind us of the fun time we had at the Aquatic Center.
And then we got home to celebrate with two very special friends over dinner with us.
And a delicious ice cream.
Mu little girl is growing right in front of our eyes and she’s such a beautiful person. I feel lucky to share my life with her.
