Way Back When-esday and Wordful Wednesday

Mike (32 yrs) & Brooke (2 days old)
May 1996

This picture was taken on the day we took Brooke home from the hospital. I can NOT believe that it has been almost 13 years since that day! I remember wondering if it was really a good idea to send something so small (okay maybe not too small she was 9 lbs.) and sweet home with two completely overwhelmed, under-rested, scared new parents. Obviously we muddled through okay and if I do say so myself I think we have done a pretty good job of raising us up a good girl so far :-)

Look for my birthday letter to Brooke on Friday.

To check out who else is playing along join Cheryl for Way Back When-esday and Angie at Wordful Wednesday !

Such memories - my oldest was born in May '97, so just a year after years. You're right - how can so many years have passed?! Your girls are adorable and their birthday parties sound like so much fun!
