Six. Oh my god, how did that happen?

Six years ago, Mia was brought into the world, not without a little bit of a struggle. She was breach, with the umbilical cord wrapped three times around her neck. Her legs shot up around her head as soon as she tasted air and she refused the care of anyone other than her mom, even nurses.

Six years later, Mia is this talented, smart person who swims, draws, reads, writes poetry, does cartwheels, makes friends wherever she goes and is oh-so-proud of her long hair. She is a miracle. Words cannot even begin to describe how much I love her.

I love you, Bean. Happy Birthday.

Time flies, my friend. I haven't evicted this baby yet, and the next time I turn around, he'll be six years old, too. But there's one thing I know for sure -- you wouldn't give a single part (OK, maybe the parts where she was sick) of those six years back.

Happy Birthday, Mia! (And, way to hang in there, Mom and Dad!)
