Beat the drum.

This is a big that huge.  It's a day to celebrate, eat cake, live it up and beat the drum.  Today my girl is 2,000 days old.

No...I haven't counted each day on a paper calendar or added using my abacus, calculator or iPhone.  My countdown to baby clock became my count up clock...counting each and every day I have been blessed to have Kayla in my life...2,000 days to be exact.

Or...48,000 hours or 2,880,000 minutes or 172,800,000 seconds.  Whichever way you choose to look at the amount of time she has been in my life...each day, each hour, each minute, each second...all more precious and special than the one before.  Because 2,001 days ago I was not a Mommy...2,001 days ago I had no idea how profoundly my life would change with the sound of her cry, the sparkle in her smile or the glimmer in her eyes.  Because 2,001 days ago my life was no where near as perfect as it is today.
Here's a look back at just some of the first 2,000 days...just some of the days that have made my life rich and full of life and love...just some of the days...
Go ahead celebrate something big {or little}...just celebrate...beat that drum!

  4. Well this is going to sound a bit crazy! We actually met you and Kayla Poppins haha at Epcot the other day.  I had the little baby in the Minnie dress and Kya and Jagger are my two little Guate Tots as we call them over in adoption world!  One of my adopt mommy friends recently got me addicted to Kelle Hamptons Blog...her little one Nella has Down Syndrome.  Anywho when we briefly met your family the other day I walk away wishing I had asked if you had a blog...your little Kayla blew me away when I asked her name and she said Kayla Poppins...cutest comment ever! Anyway I was looking up the info on buddy walk and found a pic of Kayla which led me to finding you on here...yes crazy!  Hope you all had a blast at Disney! We actually live here in Windermere about 9miles from the Magic Kingdom so we enjoy the Magic pretty much weekly!
