Time Flies . . .

Sorry, it's been so long since I blogged, but my family has been keeping me pretty busy. Lots of birthday's . . . started out with my dad's, cousin Jen's and cousin Braydn's B-days in November, then my Nana Rose's b-day, onto my Papa Roses' and Aunt Deano, to my Papa Fox's and then baby Jesus and then finally my mom's to round out December! What a month of celebrations!

I especially LOVED Christmas . . . what a special first this was for me. I heard the Christmas story from the Bible for the first time as Papa Rose read it aloud . . . how amazing that Mary (9 months pregnant) rode on a donkey and gave birth in a manger . . . and I thought my birth was a difficult one!

It was so special to spend this time with family and friends. And even though I couldn't buy my mom and dad a gift, they smiled at me and told me I was their best gift of all.

And now today, we are celebrating another year passing and new year beginning. And what a year it has been. I thought it would be cool to go back to the NICU to visit some old friends and they couldn't believe how BIG I had gotten . . . you see, I see myself everyday, so I hardly notice the change, but they reminded me of what a long way I had come. They said there was no trace of the NICU still on me and reminded me how blessed I am to be so healthy today, after all I had been through this year. Here's a picture of me and one of my primary nurses, Dulce . . . remember her . . . she was always setting me up with other cute baby girls from the NICU. :)

Other recent pic's:

Me and some of the BBBS Girls . . . I can't get enough of all this attention from all the pretty ladies . . . can't wait to see you all again soon!!

Me and Nonnie out for a walk:

Cuddles with mama!I still fight eating on certian days, and this day the food won!

Finally, I have to say that I can't get enough of our San Diego Chargers! What a season!
Maybe someday I'll be like LT!
