Marge Turns 5

A few days ago, Marge celebrated her 5th birthday (which conveniently falls right around her Gotcha Day, June 29).

I can't believe Marge is 5 years old.  I also can't believe that she's now been in my life for 4 years, nor can I remember what life was like before I had her.

I always feel a little sad around her birthdays, since they mark the fact that she is now another year older.  I can't stand the thought of an old Marge!  Thankfully, she hasn't lost any of her youthful exuberance (though the past few weeks, her main pastime has been holding down the couch... it's too hot to do much else).

As I've done in previous years, I put together a video collage of the past year.  This year's video is the longest yet, but if you want to get a taste of how Marge spends her days, humor me and watch a couple of minutes of it :o)

Happy 5th Birthday, Marge! You and me we are about the same age except my day isn't until October
4th when I will be 5.

We will come back later and watch your video, we gotta go right this minute.

Kisses,
Stella

We got to stay and watch the video and it is just great to see this girl work! You have done wonders with Marge and even though you don't like her aging, wait a few more years while she just carrys on! Wheee!

Happy birthday Marge, the big oh-five! Still a baby -- "old" is a long way off yet ;-)

Happy belated birthday Marge! Katie and I watched the whole thing. It sure is good to see you running and jumping and grinning and playing and napping! You are one happy girl, that's for sure!

Your video was exactly what I needed this morning. Seeing you appreciate your time with Marge, seeing the love between the two of you, seeing all the amazing progress that you've made to give her a almost fear-free life - well, you made my day, and that's not an easy thing to do today.

Thanks so much for your heart-felt and supportive comments. My heart is breaking into little tiny shards but the support of friends like you helps a lot. Time is winding down all too quickly...
