How did this happen?

Happy birthday, Hailey.  You are our sunshine.

mygirl

Now please stop growing up so quickly or I will be forced to freeze you in carbonite, like a tiny Han Solo.  And this is the first year that you will totally get that joke and you will make another, far more obscure joke about Clone Wars and I won’t get it at all, and you’ll give me that look like, “Aw.  Old people are adorable.  Bless your heart.”  And I will still love you because you’re amazing.  But I’ll also be stockpiling the carbonite.

You’ve been warned, my sweet girl.

They also refuse to stop growing even with the threat of carbonite or cryogenics. Trust me I tried the cryogenics plea on both of my children and it didn’t work. Although it did convince my youngest to stay shorter than me so maybe carbonite will be a better threat to stop her aging.

    Awww…happy (belated) birthday, Hailey! You seem like a great kid, but with your mom and dad, how could you be anything else? hugs

    Jenny, I’m thinking the top half of her face (eyes, forehead, hairline) looks just like you, and the lower half like Victor, esp. her cheeks and chin. Definitely an adorable kid–you guys did good!😉 I suppose you could see about putting her in suspended animation, but the last I heard they were still working the kinks out of that one, so maybe not…

Amazing, slightly heartbreaking with my kids– I look at them and they are cool people. Part of me wishes I could snuggle and whiff that baby smell, and part of me is thankful that is over. Does that even make sense?

    And I know how you feel, Jenny! My nephew is going to be 10 in one month! I am amazed and keep asking myself, “How did this adorable little bundle of sweet babyness turn into a grown boy so fast??” Oh, how a decade passes with the snap of our fingers…
