I was unloading the dishwasher (oh, the glamour!) and happened to overhear a sweet voice playing in the room next to the kitchen.

PS- Locating the playroom right next to the kitchen?  Pure gold.  I LOVE being close to where my kids play all the time!  Bonus:  there are doors that shut and block the sound really well if needed. 🙂

Anyhow.  Unloading the dishwasher, and I hear Julianne playing with some Fisher Price Little People characters and talking about how this one was the mommy and this one was the daddy.

My heart skipped a beat.

This time last year?  She still didn’t know what “mommy” and “daddy” truly meant.

And now?  She does.

Oh, does she ever.

I cannot believe that we are SO close to the day we first saw her.

So.  Close.

And so, like a mama counts down and remembers the final days before giving birth to a new baby, I am filled with memories as I think about the countdown to Julianne-Day.  It’s completely surreal.
