Once upon a time,
there was a woman
and the woman was me.
She lived her life,
and when she was pregnant
with her first baby she, who is me,
And I waited for my baby to come,
nine months I waited,
and then quite suddenly it seemed
(after 26 hours of labor)
she was here.
And then when I wasn't looking,
she began to grow.
And then one day,
I'm not even sure how it happened,
but when I looked at her
she was no longer my little baby.
She was all grown up into a little girl.
The next thing I knew,
she was doing big girl things,
like riding on roller coasters, and losing teeth.
And that's a look at the past five years with Hallie.
If that weren't enough photos for you, I've put together the following.
These are some of the most classic photos of Hallie, at various ages and stages.
