I was looking at the pumpkins on the table tonight as we decorated cookies and thought my big girl use to be smaller than that pumpkin. I so wish I had hallowed out a pumpkin and put her in it back then. Here is Rissa's first halloween picture. This is a pumpkin costume from the Build a bear store. She was just over a month old in the picture.

I have to tell you Her due date was Nov. 6th and I was just sure she was coming early. I wanted her to have an Oct. B day so her birthstone could be an opal like her mom's. I had my eye on this cute Dalmation costume at Target. Kent told me he'd go buy it even if I went into labor on the 31st. Just in case she made it before midnight. Didn't want her to miss out.

Well as well all know she made her grand entrance 6 weeks early on Sept. 25th- guess she wanted to share her Yaya's birthstone and not her mom's. And well everything was to big for her. But, the build a bear costume and clothes were just right.

Look how our little pumpkin turned into a princess

Oh my gosh! She is so little! Amazing how much they grow in such a little amount of time. I'm so missing those little days. I think I wanna cry now. No more of those days for me.
